I haven’t captured all my thoughts on the Fees Must Fall crisis in this piece, but considering another building at the university I graduated from has been set on fire, I thought it was time to put pen to paper. I chose to do this as a response to an article written by News24, who interviewed Athabile Nonxuba. Nonxuba is a student leader and is connected with the Rhodes Must Fall and Fees Must Fall movements.

I’m putting the blog on ice. Or at least into refrigeration?
P.S. Lot’s of naughty words follow, so read at your own peril.

This blog and I are still alive, but university has been devouring all my time for the last few weeks. I can’t believe that I’m actually saying this, but I’ll be glad when I get back to work. Until then, everyone is just going to have to wait. I’ll have a more detailed update when I finish classes next week. Ciao!
This is going to get heavy folks, so if you want to enjoy Woman’s Day as if it were any other fun-filled public holiday, please ignore this and enjoy the rest of your break.

I wrote a small piece on the upcoming EGE Expo for the Cape Times. It got published fairly intact which I was quite chuffed with. However, I have mailed them asking that they change the title of “gaming expert” to gaming/geek blogger/journalist/writer. While I do know a lot about the games industry, I wouldn’t claim to be an expert on the subject. At least my suggestions match up with my qualifications (journalism was part of my undergrad).
Hey folks. Just popping by to let you know I’m going to be pretty damn busy for the next three weeks so things are going to be pretty quiet over here at Geek Ink. I have the final versions of two design plans due in on Monday, and then a 4000-6000 word essay due two weeks after that.
This could have been a very different story, as I had a registration issue that affected my completion of one of the earlier modules that I worked on. Thankfully the university made the sane decision and saw I had submitted all my work, so it would be unfair to fail me on that module (which would have prevented me from completing the program this year) because of a clerical error.
Anyway, I will try to squeeze in some content or updates, but I’m not making any promises.
