Take a minute to introduce yourself to John Wells, a â€œtwenty-somethingâ€ undergrad at Ohio State University blogging his academia adventures at his blog the “Briefcase Journal” This site is a collection of all of Johnâ€™s experiences in his senior year of University. Here you will find John tell you about everything from the magic of his wedding day to his pre-graduation jitters, when most college students will describe these two epic events conversely. John describes himself as nobody amazing by any means, but as you go through his Blog you will find yourself disagreeing with him. You will know you are in Johnâ€™s spot by the Arabic alphabet that denotes his Blog name. You will be inspired by its opening quote, â€œDifficult takes a day. Impossible takes a week.â€ As you go through the Blog you will find yourself intrigued by his journeys and travels in England, his all nighter term paper experiences, and feel honored to understand the enchantment of his wedding day. You will further be humbled by the introduction of his newly found inspiration â€“ his lovely wife Tohima and her adorable son Hamzah.
The interesting dichotomy throughout the entire site is his self-described claims that he is just a college senior with a couple of majors going on and absolutely no set goals beyond graduation. However as you read through his memoirs, you will come to know a man that is focused and driven and motivated by philosophical approaches to daily living. Reading his experiences will allow you to get to know this right-handed man who prides himself on having tried over 250 shower gels and has also toured former Soviet Socialist Republics giving live centrifugal force demonstrations. Every new post you will read you will find yourself philosophizing right along with him as you come to understand this is not your average college kid.
The Blog itself is easy and enjoyable to read, and its writing caliber far surpasses any college level writing that this reviewer has come across. It features a black background and white print. This type of background is typically difficult to read on the Internet, but this goes unnoticed. The background becomes an effective backdrop for the outstanding set of graphics John exhibits, all expertly located on the site design and of professional quality. The older posts are a little more difficult to find, as you have to scroll to the bottom of the page to find them. The posts themselves are somewhat sporadic, but given that he is a recently married college senior facing graduation, that is not surprising. For content, uniqueness, and appearance the Blog scores well above average and it earns good navigation scores as well. Its sporadic activity is the only thing that brings the overall score of 4.3 down, but perhaps we will see more of John once that jittery graduation day has come and gone. We hope so!
