I’m currently 3 weeks ahead of the course planner, allowing for half term (where I will have to take a week off because I have no childcare and two monkeys to look after) and the extra time it will take to write my assignments.
I thoroughly enjoyed Cleopatra and Doctor Faustus but the chapter on Cezanne was one of the most boring I had ever come across. I became bored and kept getting sidetracked by housework throughout the chapter. I was disappointed that TMA01 is partly based on the Cezanne chapter but decided I’d better make the most of it.
I’ll let you in on a little secret though. If this module wasn’t compulsory, I wouldn’t be doing it… I have no interest in the Arts, the lives of the great and famous…. My passion within history is the lives and trials of normal working class folk. I’d love to be studying the life of the Ag Lab from a little village in Northants… but still, I suppose AA100 is a means to an end.
I’m currently writing this as a means of escaping writing Part 2 of TMA01… so I guess I’d better get cracking…
See you later….
