Hi all! Today I am posting from my makeshift desk in my truck, as you can see from the above picture! With Roanoke College’s move to online classes in response to the COVID19 pandemic, I have had to improvise and adapt my internship as well. I live in the middle of nowhere and WIFI at my home is not very reliable, so right now I am sitting in the parking lot of a closed coffee shop connecting to their internet. With everywhere closing and everyone practicing social distancing everyone has to make changes for the safety of all, that being said this is not how I was planning on finishing my Senior year, but we must persist!
This change has been somewhat difficult for my internship, but I am hoping to still be able to finish my Magna Carta project adequately. While the past couple of weeks have been challenging I have tried to continue my research without interruption as much as possible. In my last post, I discussed how I was researching how Magna Carta influenced the British government. I have continued that research and also started researching how Magna Carta has influenced the United States Government. I hope to wrap up my project within the next few weeks and create a finished product that I am proud of!
