Easter is almost here, which provides me with an opportunity to look back at the term and think about what I have achieved. The two modules that I have been taking are really interesting. I think Victorian Sex and Sexuality is one of my favourite modules of the entire degree and the Reflective History unit has made me think about history in a way that I have not had to do so far in my degree.
However, my dissertation has definitely dominated this term. I have made several trips to the British Library in London to complete my research, which I have really enjoyed, and I have also been into a local secondary school to find relevant material. While I am not quite at the point that I hoped I would be with my dissertation by Easter, I still feel that it is going well and I feel very lucky to have such a helpful and supportive tutor! Furthermore, I am looking forward to writing up all of my research as I think it will feel very rewarding to see the project coming together after spending so many hours in the archives! Nevertheless, I am still going to ensure I have some time to relax and enjoy spring in Bristol over the next few weeks before I have to start thinking about final exams.
