This weekend was my first uninterrupted, plan-less one in Birmingham. It’s always a bit alarming to have a free weekend in a new city, and it requires a great deal of independence and planning. However, I was determined to take advantage and not spend the whole time writing my dissertation and binging on (more) Terrace House. So I took to Google.
After a hectic period of exams, January was a welcome break. Passing all necessary theoretical courses in December, I’ve since taken “Academic Skills and Research Proposal,” a ten-unit practical course designed to prepare students for our upcoming internships and thesis writing.
