Bank of England and Effective Procrastination

Hello there,

Last Tuesday, I represented the Greenwich Pluralism in Economics Society at the Bank of England at an event entitled ‘Revisiting the State of Economics Education’. It was a full-day conference hosted by the Economics Network at the University of Bristol (http://www.economicsnetwork.ac.uk/) and it was great to see active involvement in debate about how economics education could improve. For more information on this, check out Rethinking Economics: http://www.rethinkeconomics.org/


Meanwhile, things are heating up for University of Greenwich Economics students right now! Deadlines for more than half of our coursework are at the beginning of April. One of the 3 assignments due is a 5500-word ‘Patchwork’ coursework project that is made up of many sections, covering Macroeconomics and Microeconomics.

At this point in the year, it is important that spare time is used effectively and any procrastination is undertaken in an efficient and productive manner!

On Tuesday I will be participating in a cooking competition called ‘Broke Masterchef’. It is a student-organised event similar to the TV show (which I don’t watch) but all teams will have to scramble over a table of ingredients that you would typically find leftover in a student fridge! We will then get half an hour to produce the best dish we can, and there will be two prizes; one for the tastiest dish, and one for the most creative. Here is a link to the event: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Broke-MasterChef/872688126105597

I still practice regularly in two bands. With one of them, we are getting songs together to release an EP. The other one is a 3-piece instrumental band playing anything we think sounds good, ranging from jazz, to trip-hop, post-rock and chillout (so pretty open-minded). We are actually looking for a singer at the moment, so if you’ve got some nice vocal chords, drop us a line: saloonjazzmusic@gmail.com
