ROW80 – Crossing off lists

It’s already Sunday night, which means it’s time for another ROW80 check-in.

While I wrote a lot this week and got a lot done, I didn’t get as much done as I had hoped.

I only just finished one assignment and didn’t get a chance to do both I had set out to finish this week. The binder will have to wait a little, as the outline for course MA500 Persuasion isn’t as straight forward as expected, so I’m still trying to figure out how best to sort it all. I did make a start on the binder, though.

The supplement courses are going ok, though again, due to time limits, I haven’t completed as many modules as I would have liked.

But here’s what I managed to do:

  • Submit CCC502 Assignment #5
  • Submit CCC502 Assignment #6
  • Prepare binder for MA500 Persuasion
  • Complete Community Journalism module #3
  • Complete Community Journalism module #4
  • Complete Modern Business module #3
  • Complete Modern Business module #4
  • Complete Modern Middle East II module #2
  • Complete Understanding Language #1
  • A to Z blog post for Q on Monday
  • A to Z blog post for R on Tuesday
  • A to Z blog post for S on Wednesday
  • ROW80 Update on Wednesday
  • A to Z blog post for T on Thursday
  • World Book Day Updates on 23/04
  • A to Z blog post for U on Friday
  • A to Z blog post for V on Saturday
  • Weekend Coffee Share on Saturday
  • ROW80 Update on Sunday
  • Attend Cow Club Rock ‘n’ Roll Benefit Reading on 25/04

I’ve also made progress on my goal to read more, and spent an hour or more reading books in the garden. I’m still reading Devil in Amber by Mark Gatiss, the second book in the Lucifer Box trilogy. So once I’ve finished the third book Black Butterfly, what should I read next?

Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs or Mr. Penumbra’s 24-Hour Bookstore by Robin Sloan? They’re both on my list for the 60 Books Challenge.

This little beauty also arrived today, from the Cultural Studies & Modern Languages course I took from the University of Bristol earlier this year:

My FutureLearn Statement of Participation for the course Cultural Studies & Modern Languages at the University of Bristol.

To be fair, I’ll be glad when A to Z is over. I managed to schedule the posts for this week, but it is time-consuming. I don’t think I’ll join another challenge in the next few months.

Anyway, that’s all I have time for right now. Check out the other ROWers here.

  1. Looks like you managed to cross a good bit off for the week. Good job! I know what you mean about A-Z. I have enjoyed the challenge, but it can get a little overwhelming sometimes. Still, I’m thinking about doing the Story a Day challenge next month, probably because I’m a bit crazy. 🙂

  2. Yay! Another Futurelearner.

    Even if you didn’t write as much as you’d intended to, it looks as if you’ve been getting a lot done. Especially with the A-Z…. that is a daunting challenge.

      1. Several… right now, I’m taking the Fiction Writing class and the Learning and Teaching methods class, but I’ve taken several others and am still working through them past the ending dates. (Yeah, I am not good at finishing the classes; life keeps getting in the way. The nice thing about Futurelearn is the class info is always accessible, so I use it like a self-directed homestudy program.)

        I tried Coursera… the format wasn’t quite fluid enough for my schedule.

      2. Oh, I’m doing the Fiction Writing one as well! And Understanding Language I think that’s the one you do too?

        I know, FutureLearn is great in that it lets you continue and you can even still get a a statement if you need one. Finally finished Community Journalism last night, now I’m just catching up on Modern Business – that class has actual assignments and tests that count, so it’s not that easy working through or getting an answer wrong in a quiz.

        Have fun on the courses. We’ll probably see each other in the comments 😉
