Hello there! My name is Bailey and I am the author of this “Empires and Ruins” blog. Currently, I am a student at UC Irvine studying criminology and enrolled in Introduction to Criminal Justice as well as Honors Humanity Core. My Humanities Core class is the reason behind writing this blog since we were given the assignment to express ourselves throughout the course of this quarter. Anyways, I am not completely sure what I would like the end result of my criminology major to be or if I want to go to law school, but I am optimistic about figuring that out during my time at UCI. I do not want to disclose too much information so I will keep this short. Please enjoy my blog and my opinions, and feel free to comment your responses! Thanks for reading!
