This week I’ve been sick. I haven’t been in uni all week but have caught up on lectures and don’t feel like I’ve missed anything. The lab Monday would have been fun but we were using a skill we have already learnt in a different way so I didn’t miss out too much! Tuesday’s lectures were online so I caught up on the presentations at home. Thursday we only had a workshop and the worksheet was online.
Spending the time at home this week has meant I’ve had extra time to get on with assessments which has been very handy. It’s been a very productive week and I’m feeling pretty good about how much I’ve achieved and where I’m at with my uni work. I’ve only got one more week of uni and then I’m off for the winter! It’s felt like a long second half of the semester but we’re nearly there now!
Personal learning this week: Sometimes you just have to rest!
Interesting things I’ve learnt this week:
- Humans are destructive! – Since the arrival of agriculture, about 12,000 years ago, we humans have destroyed 83% of all wild mammals and 50% of all plants! How long until it’s all gone?!
- Cost of housing in London is causing poverty – Between 2011 and 2017 weekly earnings in London increased by only 4% while housing prices increased by 67%! (You can read more here: https://www.resolutionfoundation.org/publications/london-stalling-half-a-century-of-living-standards-in-london/)
