I study Geography, Geology, History and Graphics in the UK. I like pretty much anything to do with water, animals and the environment and I dabble in geek culture every so often. (Right now, I'm pretty into DC and Marvel, Attack on Titan and Game of Thrones.)

On the 9th of February, I'm going to the Isle of Arran in Scotland for five days for a Geology field trip.

It's going to take a day to drive out there and a day to drive back so, all in all, I'll be away from my home town for a week. I'm not looking forward to waking up at 5 am to get to college and leaving at 6 am and then driving for twelve hours. Stare

On the positive side, I still have to read the latest installment in the 'A Song of Ice and Fire' (Better known as 'Game of Thrones') and I'll have plenty of time for that on the coach. I do know the 'big twist' at the end though, no thanks to the internet. I wasn't even looking for it, it just popped up in 'trending' on facebook, geez. Facepalm

Plus, I have my little geology squad. They're a good bunch and we're always having a laugh in lesson (and getting minimal work done, or so it would seem because I have no idea how to do any of the things required for our field work. Doh! ) One of them said he'd bring cards against humanity so we can play it in what little free time we have when we get there! XD

Overall, this year's gone really fast. I know it's not over yet but February half term is typically the time students at my college start their revision and then I'll be revising for two months straight as nearly all of my exams are in May! Oh Noes!  WHERE DID THE TIME GO??

On a last note, having decided I'm no longer going to pursue a career in art, I'm dropping it at the end of this year. However, I don't want to abandon art as it's an integral part of who I am. (cringecringecringe.) No, but seriously, I'd like to carry on with it as a hobby so I'm going to really try to post art here, both digital and traditional. I really really do want to get better.

And that's all. Hope you're well, whoever is reading this. (If you put any Game of Thrones spoilers in the comments, I'll fucking kill you.)

Oh boy, another politicaly and economicaly illiterate person who does not undesrtand capitalism nor free market. We're up for a ride boys.

The 'Probably Socialist or some crank' thing is an inside joke between me and my friends as a reference to 'An Inspector calls' which we were required to study for our English GCSE (which is also why you will see me spam 'I don't play golf' in reply to some of my comments which is another line from the screenplay. Hilarious if you put it into context.)

The 'Burning hatred for capitalism' is also a joke, certainly a hyperbole. While it's true I do not 'like' capitalism or the free market per say, (or rather, the side effects of it), I understand that it is necessary for this stage in globalisation.

Though I am a left libertarian, I do not fully identify as socialist as I respect that a radical left-wing change to the economy would be disastrous, nor do I hate people who identify as capitalist.

So don't worry, I don't blindly follow the far-left agenda.

(Also, are you that guy who replied to my comment on the feminist stamp? Fyi, I'm a humanist and fully support people who are anti-feminist. I just didn't understand your analogy, or rather thought it was a bit far-fetched. However once you explained I got the jist of it.)

My comment was indeed rushed and I didn't put much research nor thought in your profile nor your claims, which I should apologize for.
I'm not a free market freak myself, I support goverment in making restrictions on capitalists so everyone could get a fair shot and don't believe in anarcho-capitalism, that's just a side note.
I actually don't like the globalisation of market myself, while useful and comfortable it can have damaging effects on quality of products we buy and on wealthy people getting more power than middle class or poor people, which was the case in my country (Poland) that I'm glad someone exposed.
Well, you know what they say - if you manage to piss off both conservatives and liberals you can call yourself a libertarian.

I'm very glad to understand and see that I was wrong in my accusations. I'm very disappointed in humanity that alot of people either go for being conservative or leftist, rather than see the good points that both of the sides represent, alot of people are so deep in their bullshit they can't see that they have become bigots themselves, that's why I'm pretty agressive and straight forward with my claims, which I apologize for.

As I said - I'm glad you don't. After all people forgot that being atheist is also being open minded and not automaticaly conforming to the far leftist side and vice versa.

(No idea, it depends what the content of the stamp was? But it's surely possible)

Okay, thank you for understanding.  I totally get why you seemed agressive as yes, there are so many people out there who become emoptionally attatched to their ideologies to the point of being so defensive and hypocritical. I can't stand people like that myself so don't worry about it.

Also good to know that there are other people out there on the internet that actually listen to reason. :)
