Soooo… I’ve been absent a lot lately. In my defence, I’ve been busy. “Doing what?” I hear you ask.
I graduated my MA, and I’m busy looking for a PhD and preparing a paper for the Irish History Students’ Association’s annual conference. I’m volunteering as a tutor in an after-school club in the city centre. I’m debating my ass off: I broke (closest equivalent: making it out of the group stages in the Champions League) for the first time in my career at Trinity in late January, and made it to the semi-finals. Next Friday, I’m off to Galway (with the same partner) for the Irish National Law Debates, hoping to improve on that performance and be awesome on certain people’s home turf.
Having spent last semester as a newsreader on ULFM, I’m presenting my own show from 10-12 on Wednesday mornings (broadcasts online at http://www.ulfm.ie and uploaded to the site’s ‘Listen Back’ page about a day later). It’s called The Noise, and it’s an alternative music and culture show. If you’re interested, there’s a Twitter account ( @TheNoiseULFM ) and a Facebook page ( https://www.facebook.com/TheNoiseULFM ).
As a result, I’ve also rejoined the Tweetmachine myself. I’m @DeclanMMills, if anyone’s interested.
That’s about it, really…
