Well, one month on and my blog is virtually empty – only the welcome message sent weeks ago. This is my attempt to rectify that!
So far, things are going well. Both Abdul and George provided invaluable help on module choice and I am now going for a specialisation in Globalisation with courses in the Governance and Human Rights modules. Right now I hope to write my dissertation on something that relates Globalisation and Governance, but we're only one month in and I am open to anything. I think it has to be in Globalisation though, if I am to declare a specialisation anyway.
I've now written my final exam for my course in 'Ecology, Justice and Citizenship' and on Thursday I sent in my dissertation for the Global Programme in Development Management. I should know by December if I've achieved the MSc, fingers crossed!
Having finished the work for the MSc I now feel like I have ample time for the readings for the LLM and even time for other things. I have three courses running simultaneously (the core module plus two electives) right now and I managed to do the assigned readings for two of these already (on Friday and Saturday) and am going to use Monday and Wednesday to do the readings for the Third. Tuesdays and Thursdays I have group work & lectures.
Anyway, I am going to use the extra time that I feel I have towards getting ahead in our assigned textbooks and/or reading one of the five books I've bought on eBay. I think tomorrow I might read ahead in EMPIRE and start reading more on IHL, who knows.
Better go make dinner!
