Well, the course is coming to an end and although I have had my struggles with trying to work 40-50 hours a week and go to school full-time, I was still able to learn a lot of new skills. I learned how to create and maintain my very own blog, which is something I might just keep using in my personal life. I learned how to embed hyperlinks and how to cite pictures and media. I chatted with a librarian for the first time and expanded my skills at obtaining research. I learned how to create a budget in Excel, too!
In addition to new skills, I feel like I have gained a broader perspective on gender, both historically and presently. I was excited to learn that although we have historically had a very patriarchal society, this has dramatically shifted and women are even surpassing man in many different areas.
I am definitely going to continue using many of the skills I learned. I will probably continue using my blog and make it into something where I can talk about all the new recipes I come up with. I will also keep using Excel to maintain my budget and plan for trips, since I will be done with school so soon . . . well, for now. Overall I am satisfied with the class and all the things I have learned.
