A busy week that was supposed to be a catch up week - Spring Break. What Break? Had a lovely chat with my Dad, finished reading a bunch of texts for Anthropology study, Travelled to Toronto and was SUPER BUSY.
Had a minor freak out moment when I realized I wasn't clear on how much work I had to do for College. Drowning in things that I want to read, not knowing where to draw the line.

This week Professor Comitas moved onto discussing what he called three periods in the History of research in the Caribbean. Loosely they are: (1) Everything before 1945 (2) post war scholars (1945-1980s) (3) contemporary period (1980s through to now).
This week I've found myself using Trello less and less as I go through my days. This is more on account of being overburdened with activity than with not needing or wanting to.

Note: This week I discovered that Soundcloud was not a solution that I could continue with. Unless I’m willing to pay lots of money, the upload restrictions meant that this won’t be possible. So my solution now is to (1) make available the entire file via drop-box to my classmates who would like it and (2) use this online site to cut the file into 10mb chunks, which can be made into this awesome audio playlist as above.
This also explains why I have not written much/anything about this weeks session yet, although it was extremely interesting. I’ve already listened to the audio while taking a walk in the park.
