The first term of the third year of a degree is definitely a lot busier than I thought it would be! I have had one essay deadline so far and another deadline coming up in two weeks, and combined with that I’m working on plans for my dissertation. It is definitely a challenge keeping everything organised, however it seems to be going well so far.
I’m also still managing to do things aside from work! I work one day a week at an organic wholefoods shop in Redland, which is a nice way of having some time off from the library (as well as earning some extra money). As well as this, during our reading week I went on a trip with others in my Death, Doctors and Disease module to the Wellcome Library in London to see the exhibition on the asylums in Britain and then were taken around the library to explore their archives that we can use for our own research – a much more interactive way of learning about the course to say the least.
The rest of this term will probably be quite quiet with deadlines and dissertations, however the History Ball is coming up in early December, which I’m very much looking forward to!
