reflection on the international relations course

International relations is one of the chosen subject for university students in the uk and the world.
The reason why most students like my self feel that international relations is the course i would like to do.
when doing my IR course i learned many things like the world wars, the arab crises and most of all diplomatic history.
The professors teaching those courses are very helpful when it comes to writing essays, desertations etc. The university also offers new subjects which i will hopefully do like introducation to human rights issues. I am currently doing very interesting subjects which comes to my attentiona dn also teaches me many things about the past, i am also doing international communications course which i really find interesting and im gaining alot from this ie im learning who to do casestudies and we are doing one as i speak.
lastly i want to thank all my professor audrey wells whose subject taught me alot about the cold wars, professor gary stevens who taught us alot of things we didnt know like blogging, case studeis, research etc.
i also want to advice all students who will read my blogsomeday to go for international relations major/minor , its a very interesting course and you willgain alot from this when you graduate from university.

London July seven attacks

On the morning of July seven I woke up on the screaming of my neighbor's, I opened the door and asked what's wrong , my neighbor told me that London is on attack.
Suddenly I was thinking about my brother who is in work on the morning of July seven, he told me that he is ok and advised me not to leave my house.
I personally was surprised and also questioned why those terrorists decided to attack London, innocent people were hurt by this horrific attack. Later on the same day my parents and relatives called me , when I picked up then everyone started asking me "are you ok?" Is your brother ok? I answered we are all fine and I also asked my parents to book for me to go home because I was very scared from life. My parents told me to go to heathrow airport and book to come to Saudi on the same day.
In my view, it is wrong for this horrific attack to happen , London is one of the safest places on the world and its people are very friendly indeed.
I will always remember day that worsened my life because of this attack.
lastly I want to give my condolences to the people of London on this attack, I hope the people who did this attack on London will be brought to justice .
