Well, classes are easy, plain and simple. I am registered in 4 classes officially.
- One class IS my internship and I also have to write a 30 page research paper related to my work.
- Working in the UK: which I have every Wednesday evening after work with all the other interns. Last week we watched part of the British office and were quizzed on British politics. The prize? A bottle of champagne.
- Modern British Politics: my teacher is a wealth of knowledge and a wonderful resource. The course will not be terribly taxing and just requires a paper and some exams. Today we had a field trip to the Imperial War Museum. The Holocaust exhibition was fantastic. Oh, and my teacher took us out for tea and cakes at the museum! So cute!
- International Political Organisations: This is the one class I have with British students. They happen to be freshmen and are lucky if they make it to class at all. I have a presentation this Monday, then just a paper and exam.
All in all, it won’t be too bad I don’t think. I can’t imagine what it would be like without the internship, because classes can be kind of a downer. Peter recently arrived in Austria and Annamarie in Rome. It’s a big European adventure!
I’m hoping to get my plans for Indianapolis set for summer. I found out Alec will be there, so I am glad I’ll have a buddy. Also, I am totally hooked on watching The Office (American). I’m glad I get classes overwith on Mondays because I don’t think I would enjoy working thay day.
Sorry again that the YouTube videos have delayed sound, poor video (sorry Val!), and have to be linked. I’m having problems with my digital camera anyhow. This weekend I said “Cheers” for the first time!
