In the blogs this week a few have commented on the way this module has demonstrated that there are connections everywhere. I am in total agreement! My other module this semester is on The Medieval Castle and we have done readings and research about castles all over the world. One thing that has caught my interest is the idea of trends and influences that have moved from one area to another, for example from the east to the west or vice versa. Although, we have not gone into this in great detail, it has intrigued me and is something I would like to know more about. Like the others have said I am also starting to see more and more connections, whilst reading and researching in other modules and even within my working life.
One last push
As the semester is drawing to a close and it has got to that time where deadlines are very tight, there is a distinct one last push to have everything completed. It has been hard at times trying to study, work and home-school etc, all at the same time, but we are nearly there. One thing that this semester has taught me is that whether I get an 11, 13, 15 or whatever mark it maybe, it is an accomplishment in itself for anyone to be able to complete and pass modules in the face of extreme pressures and circumstances brought on by a worldwide pandemic. It has been a privilege to get to know everyone in the class, even if it is only online, rather than in person and I wish everyone the best of luck in the future.
