Trying to Stay Sharp

Even though I’m not going to continue in academic research as a career after finishing my MA, I’m going to try to not let the skills I worked on during the program atrophy. (This is beyond just the everyday use of analysis and critical thinking that I hope is just a normal part of life for me.) The first two things:

  • Reading the Introduction and Conclusion (or equivalent) of a number of books that I obtained from the library for my thesis but never read; I might try keeping notes, but that might be a little ambitious
  • Continuing to pull locative information from Warsaw Ghetto, the book made from the diary that Miram Wattenberg/Mary Berg kept while imprisoned in the Warsaw Ghetto 1939–1942, and hopefully adding it to my mapping project on the book
