Once again, I am so sorry for the lack of posts from me recently. I have been lounging in the land of books in between bursts of business doing nothing.
I am now back for the Summer for good and with me also came a large majority of my stuff back to London. However, luckily because we are staying in our house for another year I am able to leave a lot of stuff that I won’t need over the summer… which seems like very little! Mostly just my bedding and towels!
In more interesting news our pass list went up on Thursday and I HAVE PASSED!!! We will not find out our passing grades for another week or so but it is nice to know I have passed. If I had not passed I would have then had to come back to Leicester early in September to retake my failed exam(s) in an attempt to hopefully pass that time. I have luckily not had to do this in my First and Second year as I cannot imagine how you would enjoy your summer when you have to revise through the entire thing!
Luckily (I suppose) with my pass comes a summer full of dissertation preparation.
I saw my dissertation supervisor just before I left to discuss my direction for my dissertation and what I should be doing over the summer. It looks like my goal is going to be to try and get a vast amount of research done during the next few months before I start my Third year so I don’t end up having to do research for my dissertation, while having to write that and do my other two modules.
This all means that a lot of my blogs (that I will try and post frequently) over the summer will be about my dissertation topic, how I am refining it, what sort of research I am doing and where I am going to do the research. I think the British Library may be getting a visit.
As well as my dissertation this summer I want to also get cracking with reading, photocopying and writing about all of the newspaper articles and things my Grandmother gave me that I mentioned in a previous post. What is exciting is that after reading that post my Grandmother has found a lot more information so I can’t wait to read it all and tell you about it.
So that is me catching up with what has been happening in the last few days.
