1.) This is my second go at a blog. The archives for my first one are to the left.
2.) I'm a former religious studies student and current soldier in Afghanistan.
3.) I was at one time pursuing a Phd in New Testament studies but left graduate school because my scholarly interests had since changed (evolved?). I now wish to do graduate work in history, specifically diplomatic and/or world history.
4.) This blog will reflect all of my interests including the banal ones. However, posts concerning history in one degree or another will probably constitute a good portion of the blog. Also, personal anecdotes will appear from time to time.
5.) This blog has a definite end point in mind.
Comments, so long as they are civil, are most welcome.
