End of winter term

Just finished two courses – Newfoundland Folklore and Maritime Sociology.  Wrote two papers relating to the Waterwitch shipwreck and, of course, stages and flakes in Pouch Cove.  One more course in the summer and I will start preparing for the comprehensive exams.  I am so lucky and am so grateful to have four wonderful people on my committee.  

There are so many things I want to do before starting summer classes – a video on stages and flakes, encaustic paintings, bibliography for the comp exams ….

End of Term...

My first term is over... I thoroughly enjoyed it - lots of work but it was good.   Both Ailsa and Martin were great.  Met some nice people from Martin's class.  Will probably run into a few of them next year in Philip's Folklore class.   There is so much to learn about culture.  I really liked Bourdieu's work.
