I am most pleased to announce to you all that, after all the votes have been tallied, Scotland has overwhelming voted 'No' to Independence and has chosen instead to remain part of the grand old union with England, Wales and Northern Ireland. The result many believed was going to be on a razor wire, but instead, the 'No' campaign proved victorious by a margin of roughly 10%, to be exact: Yes 44.7%, No 55.3%.

Our beloved union is now secure and stands tall and strong! Long live our United Kingdom!

Today is a monumentally important day in the history of Scotland and the United Kingdom. All day, the people of Scotland have been voting in a referendum to decide whether or not Scotland shall remain a part of the Union that has stood for 307 years or become and a completely independent country.

I have been following this campaign with both intense interest and anxiety. However much I criticize my country, I am still a proud Briton and would be devastated to see this family of countries (England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland) be permanently broke apart. I think it goes without saying then that I am in support of the 'Better Together' campaign and thus greatly in favor of Scotland remaining within the Union, however sympathetic I am towards the Yes campaign and the desire for self-determination for all peoples.

There are arguments to be made on both sides, but I won't go into them here. If you want a detailed argument, go look online. Just know I am a definite 'No' supporter and I pray deeply that the Scottish people shall vote to stay with us.

If the people do vote Yes, then I shall respect it, wish them the best of luck and hope we remain good neighbors and allies. If they vote No, then may we stand tall together and work towards a better Scotland and UK.

I shall end this journal with a recent quote from former Prime Minister Gordon Brown:

"What we have built together by sacrificing and sharing, let no narrow nationalism split asunder ever."

Yes, everyone, I'm proud to announce today I was offered and subsequently accepted a new part-time job. After several months on jobseekers allowance and endless job searching and interviews, I can now proudly earn my wage.

Heya, bit of an out of the blue question: have you ever played any of the "Fallout" games?

Thanks. I was originally going to have Shining at the end of it actually have a little embarrassing "accident", but changed my mind, thinking it went a step too far.
