Introduction 

Hi my names Aleks this is my first blog. I’m 23 years old from Sydney Australia, I’m also a law student studying commercial and corporate law. The focal point of my blog will basically be about my expression and opinions that interest me in both my personal life  I.e. Expirences off all aspects for example travelling, my hobbiess,  etc… I will also blog about topics  within the political world and give my view and take on the matter.

I am also into my conspiracy theories, yes I am one of those people that likes to read into situations depict the situation analyse it and then try make an understanding as to whether or not the sequence of events match up to the medias story as to why what is happening is happening; yes I like to question and second guess and analyse things that happen in this globe we call our planet.

All seriousness aside I’m not a boring typical law student I like to have to fun, I like to travel, I like to live my life rather than just exist and conform to the typical 9 to 5 wake up and repeat most people tend to do, I don’t like to enslave my self to normalcy in terms to this is how you’re suppose to live life I like too live it my way after all it’s my book and I am the author of my own life.

One of my passions is cars; above is a photo of my car at the Bathurst race track Mt Panaorama In Sydney Australia, this track is known for the famous v8 supercar races and is one of Sydney’s historic race tracks. It wa such a fun day out with a great group of people.

Well that’s a little bit about myself  until next time…..
