Well, as this is my first post on my blog I suppose it would be good if I introduced myself. I am 20 years old, live in Leeds in the North of England. I spend most of my day either reading books, playing video games or watching movies, unless i'm out with friends or studying (which wont be interesting to you so I wont write about it). My favourite author at the moment is Bernard Cornwell but im working my way through the works of Ernest Hemingway and i'm particularly enjoying 'for whom the bell tolls' which I would recommend to anyone who has an interest in the spanish civil war. Also I recently re-read the Adrian mole series by Sue Townsend which is an interesting book as I found it humorous but at the same time I felt a connection with him which is odd, as he is fictional.
     As I mentioned I also enjoy playing video games. I have always been a fan of the total war games but recently I have had a renewed interest as I discovered a lord of the rings modification for medieval 2:total war which is supprisingly accurate and well made. Ill add a link at the bottom for people to look at. The games produced by paradox interactive are usually high quality and worth a look if you're into grand strategy.
      Politicaly I am a labour supporter and would describe myself as centre left for anyone who is interested.  

       In later posts ill go into more detail about my life but I hope this gives you a good impression of what I am and what I do.

The mod i talked about.
