Two effective cures for a ‘Depressive Zeitgeist:’

1. Tasty food: specifically, expensive tomatoes cut into pieces, sprinkled with oregano, mixed with chunks of feta, and drizzled with olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Repeat as required.

2. Some sort of engaging web project that, unusually, is not horribly frustrating. In this case, starting a wiki. Feel free to play with it. From now on, it is also the place to report bugs and make suggestions relating to the blog. You can also suggest readings related to my thesis there. I was going to put up a big ‘under construction’ banner, but then I realized that this statement is always already true for a wiki.

In the spring of 2005, I graduated from the University of British Columbia with a degree in International Relations and a general focus in the area of environmental politics. In the fall of 2005, I began reading for an M.Phil in IR at Wadham College, Oxford. Outside school, I am very interested in photography, writing, and the outdoors. I am writing this blog to keep in touch with friends and family around the world, provide a more personal view of graduate student life in Oxford, and pass on some lessons I've learned here.

  1. Does this wiki actually advance your ability to complete the thesis, or are you just wasting time?
