I handed in the last of my scheduled assignments for the semester this week. I am relieved. At the start of the semester i chose to remain as an online student as i wasn't sure how the pandemic was going to go. I did not want to be in a position where i was face to face and then not able to hand in assignments due to being in lockdown.
Not sure if I am prophetic or not, however, everything is still up in the air. Students are stressed regarding their recitials and rightly so , they are stressful enough withouot uncertainty.
There were times i felt disconnected from the class and at times disadvantaged. I did have access to one of the teachers who I could spend time talking to and discussing ideas. This one on one time was special and was what I felt to be an advantage. In any event. Extensions have been given for marks and and a contingency in place.
During the break there is still lots of work to do. I have an album to release in October as part of my major project, There are still arrangements to write and demos to record all ready for the start of next sememster when hopefully I can get into the studio and record them before doing all the techy stuff required.
