Swamped

It was recently finals exam week for the winter trimester here at Johnson and Wales Denver. With trying to finish up three classes, along with my regular array of other activities and tasks to complete, the past two weeks have just been swamped!

On-Site Food Service Management
We ended the trimester with a final exam in the form of a case study. We basically wrote up another mock proposal to a fictitious company that wanted us to come in and run the food-service facilities on the campus of a college. � The project itself was easy to finish; I was glad to not spend hours and hours working on it! In the end I got a decent grade in the class, with a B+

Literary Generes’
ENG1001 ended up with a little more work. Not only did we still have a few more “in class discussions” (or a forum) to finish, but also another 5 page essay and a 3 page essay-format exam to finish and turn in. I did enjoy the class and the different works that we read, but I don’t think I will miss this class much. For me, there just wasn’t much that we talked about that I hadn’t read before.

Food In Film and Lit
There was a lot of work to be finished for this class, but it was enjoyable to do. Along with a essay-format final exam we had a final project to do as well. We were allowed to choose the movie or text that we wanted to write about; and to write about how the food in the story effected the characters and development of the story.

The only caveat was that we were to pick something that we hadn’t read in class before, and that is where it got difficult. It was hard to figure out exactly what I wanted to write about that was also new to the class. I finally settled on the TV show Pushing Daisies, about a man who owns a pie shoppe.

On to the next Trimester
This past Tuesday marked the start of the spring trimester. While I am a bit anxious about the course selection; which are all math related classes, but it should be fine!
