Due to my lack of taking a break when I probably should’ve, I took this class over the winter to give myself a challenge. A challenge it definitely was. There was a lot of reading that I was not accustomed to and it was a tad overwhelming. One thing I can say is that it pushed me to do better and learned how to work under pressure and manage my time well. While it was a fast paced class, I can say that I did learn something that really enjoyed learning about. Of the paper presented, I scored a 95 percent, which was the highest grade I had received in the course or any course on a paper up until that point in my career. It had the many views of the Showa Era of Japan, which I found to be really interesting. i hope you do as well.
