Thirteenth week

Last week and 15h to beat, let’s go!

I did fourth task for support group at very beginning of the week, started last week on Sunday but finished this Monday. We needed to learn vocabulary while using three different techniques. I used Quizlet, AWL underlining tool and collecting and separating words into groups thing. Then we needed to write a short text how it goes. it took me almost 3h, but it was worth it because words were academic, and it was useful to learn it for the future text reading.

Of course some news reading on my way to the campus. As usually, some news about the boarder situation, the government has opened two boarder station and now thinking closing it again. This week is a great strike coming on and a lot of news how will it affect. For now we know that public transport is about to be shut down for one day, meaning trains, underline and busses. Presidential poll is accelerating and all the candidates have been selected. A lot of old material is about to be sniff out, like their graduating values last week.

We did one “coffee group” meeting with Victoria. We decided to make pre-Christmas party for our friends, so we meet and planned it. We also discussed this ALMS journey and how we have done and what. We got conclusion that it could have been easier took basic course but now we did this. Maybe after 2h or a bit before it we did change into Finnish.

I did listen one more podcast episode. It became a bit boring to listen that much podcasts but it was the easiest thing to do while you needed to do something at the same time. This time speaking about; “How building up skyscrapers changed the World?”. Talking about how high building changed the city visions and city planning. More people into same building and at the same time more people space to live. Basically, it made the million cities possible. It really chanced world. They also talked the dark side about skyscrapers, its vulnerability. Such high building are more prone to earthquakes etc.

One word list about article; “Soul of the City: The Depth of How “Urban” Matters in the Sociology of Religion” (Emerson & Knight Johnson). Total 1h reading the first 10 paces, collecting the words, and translating them. I decided to do the separating thing I learned from vocabulary group so +15min.

I watched one document: “Holy dilemma”. It was story behind catholic priest who has wife and three kids. Normally in catholic tradition, priest need to be unmarried. I watched it without texts and did understand everyhtign, something religuous words I needed to google but I got the big picture.

I did the last support group task at the end of this week. It was summary text with graphs or pictures, how this support group was and what did you learn. It was easy to write and took me just over an hour. After that there was feedback section, and I did it too.

On weekend I watched my series Task master UK, three episodes so I got my hours full. It was the same season than few weeks ago, the Australian comedienne, Sarah Kendall, was there doing the tasks. Third episode I watched was the last and one and Sarah Kendall wan the show!
