Random Liberals

We are random liberals (who knew?). Collectively, we make up the greatest blog in the history of ourselves. We will blog about anything that suits us; mostly politics, with a little bit of religion and randomness to make the blog exciting.

I don't normally steal wholesale from other blogs, because I like to try to find original material. However, I'm making an exception here. Note the oh-so-subtle differences between the captions for these two pictures (and yes, I realize it's two different news agencies. I don't care.):

Shamelessly stolen from Feministe

The blog is undergoing a template change, and I am going to be tinkering with it for a bit. I would like to add a blog roll, both so you can see what I read, and also to link to my classmate's blogs (and my new blog) for my English class. This blog will still be my main political blog, but I want anyone who reads this (hi Dad and Katherine) to be able to read my English assignments and other stuff. Hopefully during all this the blog doesn't go too wacky on me.

School again

So I guess it's kind of been awhile since I've done this. Oops. One of these days, this blog will be updated a lot more often than it has been over the last year. This isn't one of those days. Today is the first day of class at the university, and while it hasn't been especially busy (I have only two classes, and they're 5ish hours apart--sorry, I don't feel like doing the math), the school year will be as a whole, thanks to marching band and other things. This semester I take two political science classes, Spanish, and a history class with one of my all-time favorite professors. And also, an English class whose two textbooks are Publishing a Blog with Blogger™ and The Weblog Handbook: Practical Advice on Creating and Maintaining Your Blog. So, judging by those titles, this blog may become part of my English class. Or maybe I will have to create a whole new one. Who knows?

In any case, I hope to be blogging more in the near future. Model UN class is this year, so that could provide interesting tales, as might my Constitutional law class. Until then...have fun I guess.
