End of week 2

I can safely say nothing as exciting as some form of chemical warfare has broken out in the library but this has allowed my projected to tick along quite nicely!

It was a strange week that seemed to trickle away from me very quickly, without me getting as much book research as i would have liked done. This I think was partly to me having to finally move my stuff out of my student house which took up half a day and knackered me for the rest of the week.

I've managed to finish off three boxes of ephemera, one focussed on newspapers relating to the Handsworth riots in 1985, and my database (one i created to enter/ copy stuff into) now has over 40 records, and with these I'm on my way to creating a document soley on the Handsworth riots. I feel like i need something tangible, some product to have for my work. Then I will feel happier again.

Going through the boxes and adding records to the database got pretty monotonouos, but thats just life, now that i have them in there I can easily access and use them to create some more exciting things.

I think the hot weather made it hard to concentrate too, ah excuses excuses! This week should be good though, cooler weather, some more interesting stuff to do, and only one more box on my desk to go through. Week 1 was better than 2, 2 was still good though, 3 will be even better :)
