Sadly, this is my first blog of the year 2011. Why so late into the year? Well, I am a full-time student currently majoring in Political Science at Bowie State University. Life is busy and hectic, and there is hardly any time for rest! Being a college-student is a full-time job by itself. On top of that, I have a job that I have to work twice a week. Even though it's only for those two days, the combined stresses of all the activities and work I have to do on this campus make my job that much harder. Lately, there has not been that much news in my life. However, in our world of chaos and confusion, I have noticed that things are rapidly changing in North Africa and the Middle East. It is like a domino-effect, and it is almost scary. All the people who are putting their lives on the line to protest the corrupt leadership of various leaders in that region are very brave men and women. I just hope that they realize that kicking out an old leader and bringing in a new leader who is just like the old one is not progress. It's reverting back to the old ways.

Another sad story is that of the military ammunition depot explosion in Dar-es-Salaam, Tanzania. 21 people lost their lives, if I'm not mistaken. On top of that, military officials refuse to move the base and ammunitions depot outside of the city, further endangering the lives of the people living in those areas. All I can do for now is pray for my country. All people care about is doing what benefits themselves, rather than what benefits the country as a whole. There's so much unnecessary selfishness in the hearts of our leaders. May those 21 dead rest in peace.

That is about all the time I have for today. Time to get back to studying!
