Well, today I am safely back in Hawaiʻi, just waiting for the next semester to start on Monday. My, how time flies! My apologies for the quiet week, I just seem to have less motivation to write (not to mention time) when I'm at home. I did come up with some ideas to write about, so you can look forward to that in the weeks to come.
Now...to catch up on all the sleep I missed while in California! Playing Risk into the wee hours of the morning can cause strange side effects, like conquering the entire North American continent in a massive single-turn blitzkrieg starting from a single surrounded region, or contemplating whether Iceland has ever actually been involved in any wars through history (yes, if you count civil strife), and whether or not it was ever a colony of one of the Scandinavian crowns (also yes; first Norway, then Norway-Denmark, then Denmark controlled it before it officially became its own nation in 1944).
