So far I haven’t properly reflected on things done. I’ve mainly been busy with getting things organized. The introduction course took more time than expected. Also I decided on doing a proper research assignment not only as practice, but also as a contextual research. Therefor it will take more time to finalize. My reflections on that assignment I’ll write as part of a separate article called ‘Magnum Controversies’. The same goes for assignment one – square mile, a project called ‘off the baby blanket’.
