And Romania was like 'no way man', and the Commission of Reparations was like 'way'.

This semester my arts faculty wildcard subject is the Political History of the Balkans.

Man, what a place. Just as it dragged itself kicking and screaming, separately and with a great deal of fuss, out from under Ottoman Empire rule during the first decades of the 20th century, it was faced with the crippling lack of infrastructure at the same as it needed to fund and develop armies now it has borders and states to defend. The parallels between this dawn and the new dawn as it emerged from Yugoslav rule are distinct.

Did you know that during the early stages of the 20th century, hogs were the chief export of Serbia? No? Well now you do.

I'm confident that I've just put the reading audience to sleep. Sweet dreams.
