I've been doing a lot of work, hence lack of blog time. Four lots of coursework are completed and handed in, and I'm working on the next four at the moment: a presentation about my 'coffee and Parkinson's disease' paper, a summary of the presentation in the form of a handout, a presentation of a case study of a man with 30% full thickness burns, and a report of that case study. Today we've been given yet another bit of coursework, a statistical analysis in the Computing module. So there isn't much time to blog, and not much time to do anything to blog about.
I do have a small problem with one of my assignments, the 'magazine article' about coffee and Parkinson's disease, returned today after marking. I got a mark that wasn't bad at all, I'd be quite happy with it really, but the marker made comments about two things she would have expected to see in the article. The thing is, they were both there, but on the second page - I don't think she noticed that there were two pages. I've actually made an appointment to see her on Monday, and will have to think carefully about how to manage that meeting.
I have had time to play badminton, and there's good news on that front. I've sorted out some coaching for the club, and 12 people have signed up, which is great. We started on Tuesday at the same venue as the club I used to play for, so I saw some of those lovely people for a few minutes. The other step forward is that my current club is very likely going to move to a new venue, which will not only be newer and nicer, but will also allow us more court time. At the moment we have one court for two hours and a second court for just one hour, so the number of people has to be limited. I'm one of the reserve players, so I only get to go when I'm invited. The new place has three courts for two hours, so I can play every week. It won't be that much more expensive, either.
