Last ‘official’ teaching week

Working hard!

Wow. I cannot believe that I am sitting here writing a post about the last ‘official’ teaching week of my undergraduate degree. How time flies. This week has been pretty hectic, but our final seminar on Monday for ‘The Virgin’s Places’ was awesome. Our tutor Michele brought in food and drinks (including some amazing home-made focaccia), and others in the seminar group brought various treats. I made some raspberry and orange cupcakes to bring in, and sadly I wasn’t able to eat all of the delicious treats that others brought in as I have given up chocolate for Lent 😦 I’m not going to lie, it was pretty hard to turn down some mouth-watering chocolate brownies.

So Easter is upon us, and for many that means a time of relaxation, catching up with family and friends and hopefully doing the odd bit of work! For us third years, this easter break will pretty much be full of writing and researching for our Dissertations. Therefore, my home for the next few weeks before I go back to my real home(!) will be the library. Maybe I should set up some camping gear there also?…

Anyway, I hope everyone has a lovely easter break, and manages to do everything that you are aiming to achieve/do! Keep checking out the blog because I have lots lined up.
