Here’s Jonny!

Well, I’m back.

I have journeyed into the world of blogging a few times before with varying levels of success and I thought it was time to start something new to reflect the new stage of life that I have entered.

The last few months I have been caught up in a whirlwind of change – good change!  In August I got married to the woman of my dreams, Cassie.  We moved to Birmingham.  She commenced a Graduate course in Law.  I commenced postgraduate studies with the University of Birmingham.

I am currently studying an MA in International Relations with a specialist pathway in International Peacekeeping.  The course is a lot of work, very challenging and extremely encouraging.

I have also been assigned as a Research Assistant to one of the Professors in my department – so I am getting many great opportunities to develop personally.

My own research is, as usual, flirting on the lines of theory and practice.  I just love exploring that tension and asking the tough questions that are rarely covered in mainstream academia.

This blog will, undoubtedly, act as a sounding board for my academic work.  My dissertation progress.  My Research Assistantship.  And, all manner of personal projects.

Please feel free to engage and let’s see where this journey goes.
