This is just an update about what I plan to do after 2nd year exams are over and done with, and just in general whats been going on.
So, what has been going on - not very much being perfectly honest. My days have consisted of doing not a lot or revising like hell, and with four days until my first exam I'm taking this little break from a day of revising like hell. Everything seems to be sinking in fairly well and I know I can handle exam stress better than a lot of people so it shouldn't be too much of a bother once exams actually kick in.
Now onto the actual interesting bit of this update - my family history. My brother is going to finish his three year history degree very soon and I asked him recently how the search for our family history or crest was going - apparently it wasn't going anywhere as he hadn't worked on it. Fair play, he had a dissertation and final exams to consider. So now I am taking it upon myself to get some research started into this area after exams - who would've thought I would end up working after exams were done? Not that I am going to complain, after he mentioned about it I got really interested in what my family tree was like, where I came from and all that stuff.
Most importantly I really want to find my family crest possibly for my next tattoo - yes I know I can Google "Everard family crest" and get lots of results, but I really don't want to rely on Google for something like that. Admittedly all of the crests are along the same lines but I want to find the one that started it all centuries ago and where my name comes from. I already have an idea about the name, as preliminary research has indicated its from the old Germanic "Eberhardt" meaning "strength of a boar" - pretty bad-ass. So this research will involve me going to the library and pouring through a great number of books and volumes looking at my family tree, pretty much until I leave university for the summer - challenge accepted.
As a final note, cheers to everyone who has given my page a look over and my deviations too, well on the way to 3000 deviation views and less than 100 page views until I reach that milestone of 1000. so please keep checking out my stuff, favouriting and leaving comments its all highly appreciated.
