This week has been awesome, study-wise… I’ve finished one of my academic skills study modules, and am currently working on another, getting some good practice on using the material with the textbook samples I’m using…

There’s been a bit going on for blogging too… I’ve just last week started up my new WordPress site at http://iamthemirus.wordpress.com/ though I plan on mostly posting articles and videos on the site – rather less frequently than I post here.

On Barrel Of Oranges, there’s a guest post by my friend Martin Pribble – Expanding on the Definition of Humanism

The remainder of this week is going to be busy for me, so this post will be a bit more minimalist than usual.
