Hello my lovelies!
How are you doing today? It’s nice to see you for our Weekend Coffee Share. Have you noticed anything different here? Study.Read.Write now has it’s own, fancy dotcom domain!
We’re all readers here, right? How about we meet at my local library for their Annual Book Market and then go and grab a coffee at one of the cafés in town?
Sounds good, right? I’ve got loads to tell you, so we’d better find a place with unlimited coffee supply.

Hello my lovelies!
It’s good to see you for our Weekend Coffee Share. How have you been? What have býou been up to tis past week? I have not seen much of the internet this past week as I am studying and writing like mad to make next Saturday’s course deadline.
But I need a coffee break, so I’m glad to be able to spend it with you!

As I didn’t update on Wednesday with a progress report, I’m doing so today. A lot of what else happened this week can be found in yesterday’s Weekend Coffee Share.
I handed CCC502 Assignment #6 in on Friday morning, and already had it back marked just after Friday lunchtime. It was a graphic organiser that took me ages to compile and I got an A (95%) on it.
I also completed the final module on Modern Middle East II this week and passed the final exam with 84%. That means, if my calculations are correct, my overall grade for the course is 88.80%. The exam came as a bit of a surprise, as it was 3 hours in a single attempt, so once I had started it I couldn’t stop again.
You’ll see that I completed an extra module on the Modern Business course. That’s because I couldn’t sleep and figured I’d keep going. That module was the last, and finishing it meant having one less course to worry about next week.
It’s just before midnight here, and I just finished the first module on my first edX course The Rise of Superheroes in Pop Culture at the Smithsonian Institution taught by Michael Uslan and Stan Lee. It’s a great course so far, even though the prospect of creating my own superhero and villain is a bit daunting.
So here’s my list:

Actor Sir Ian McKellen, known the world over as Gandalf in Peter Jackson’s The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit movies, had something to say to students at Chew Valley School who don’t want to study for their exams.

Maybe it’s because I’m German (because we, as a nation, LIKE organisation and punctuality, having schedules we can follow and To Do lists we can tick items off of), maybe it’s just the way I am as an individual, but I do like to be organised.
I’m used to schedules and deadlines, and even though I do enjoy days of doing nothing, I always go to bed feeling guilty because of all the things I didn’t get done.
So here’s a glimpse at my current weekly schedule:
