Busy week ahead… as always.
Yesterday I had my Medieval History tutorial over the English Revolt of 1381, Lecture about Roman Frontiers, and my Archaeology Lab over using GPS to create site plans. This morning I had a lecture over Popular Religion in the 14/15c. Funky fresh times talking about converted Pagan rituals!
Last Friday was a long night. I volunteered at the NMS for the Museum Late. The NMS hosts night time events which correspond to the current special exhibit. They serve drinks, have live music, and performances that go along with the theme. The exhibit right now is ‘Monkey Business’ about different type of monkeys and apes. I’ve been through it a few times with my museum membership and it’s really cool. (Although I am looking forward to the next exhibit about Bonny Prince Charlies and the Jacobites!!) But anyway, I was staffing the arts and crafts station for the evening. It was actually quite fun, I was stationed in the Grand Gallery so I was able to listen to the live music and watch the acrobats!
Saturday and Sunday I was absolutely exhausted. I took the rest of the weekend to relax, work on readings, and read books for actual enjoyment. I’m currently re-reading Pride and Prejudice.
I have three assignments left to complete for the semester so things are starting to finally settle down a bit. However, I still have my big essay for Roman History so that’s still looming. Ugh.
Some cooler news, I’ve got a meeting lined up next week to discuss a Masters in Human Osteoarchaeology so that’s exciting. I know it might seem early, but I started looking at Universities when I was a sophomore in High School, so about this time four years ago…. ouch. Got to love those extensive five year plans!
The rest of the week looks decent ahead and I’m going to really try to get out somewhere this weekend. Haven’t decided where yet, but may just take a train north and see where I end up.
