Final Paper Update

After meeting with Dr. Vesna and my group this past week, I think that we are on pretty good track for our final booklet. My entry will go second to last and will hopefully tie together essays about bread making and medicine. I am still working on completing the entirety of my essay, but I have made good progress on my essay, and have found some public domain/creative commons images to include in my final essay. 


Rough Draft Start and Updated Outline

After discussing with my group, we have determined an order that we would like to present our works in.

Productivity, Bread Making, and Dalgona Coffee During the Covid-19 Outbreak

This past week, I experienced a ten hour power outage that left me without anything to do. While no internet access is a greatly privileged problem to have, it made me think about what hobbies and activities we take on during a period of isolation, and bread making was one of the first things to come to my mind.
