Hello everyone. My name is Craig Kelly, I’m 26 years old, and a recent graduate of the University of Dundee. Not to blow my own trumpet, but I’m going to, I just received a First Class honours MA History.
I’m a member of the SNP and I was obviously delighted with the election result in May. Despite this, on the 18th August I leave Scotland for two years. Sweden is calling, the city of Uppsala to be precise. This blog will follow my time in Sweden; the ups, downs, the periods of indifference, and will aim to provide some explanation as to why the hell I’m going to Sweden.
The posts under the ‘Uppsala’ and ‘Scotland’ categories in the right sidebar should be fairly self-explanatory. They will have posts regarding each place respectively. You will probably be able to tell if I’m feeling a little homesick by the vast increase in posts under ‘Scotland’. As I said, I’m a member of the nats. Whilst the section on Scotland will undoubtedly have posts on Scottish politics, it will not be uncritical of the Scottish Government. I will do my utmost to be objective and provide an outsider’s perspective of my home country. A novel perspective for me to take.
Lastly, there’s a little bit of self promotion going on; I am advertising my proofreading service under the aptly titled ‘Proofreading Service’.
