Meanwhile, back in Hawaiʻi...

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).

  1. Glad to hear you made it back all right. Enjoy the warm weather for all of us.

  2. Haha! It's amazing how Iceland is so important in Risk and in real life you hardly ever hear about it.
