Herschel Project Prt. 1 & 2

Idea Generation

What is this project about?

Looking for more support narrowing down your idea? Try using the idea matrix on this page.

Is farming a declining or dying profession in the current age?

What do you want to get out of this project?

I want to get a better understanding of what the profession of farming entails, its impact in the wider economy, and most importantly, the factors that are leading to its decline, if, in fact, it is declining at all. (Most of the skills I hope to get out of this )

where did the skills go? we are taking skills out of the idea generation process, in an attempt to make projects more career-focused. If you want to get leveled-up for a project, share it with the appropriate guide or faculty member for feedback upon completion.

Use this space to take notes, keep track of your sources, or conversations you have with people about this project.

At current I have not found anything to grab my interest, I am trying to find better project ideas because in the past I have had trouble with timeliness and I think more dedication due to a more interesting (to me) topic may help with that.

Option One: Napoleonic Tactics

Option Two: Brief History of Banking

Option Three: Is Farming a Dying Profession

Option Four: Poppies of Flander, the History and Symbolism

Reflect on this project cycle by answering the questions below.

The act of reflecting allows us to pull out the big takeaways that we'd like to remember from this project to make recalling them easier.

What are some of the most interesting discoveries you've made working on this project?

I enjoy writing once I begin it, but cannot for the life of me work before the last minute, something to work on for sure.

What extra resources would be helpful for this project in the future?

Several of the articles I was looking at were locked behind institutional requirements, so that wasn't fun.

šŸŒ¹ What did you enjoy most about this project? šŸ„€ What didn't go well in this project? šŸŒ± What will you do differently next time?

I really enjoyed the research parts of it, it was far more complex than I thought it was.
I had terrible time management, and many of my resources were locked behind either subscriptions or the requirement that you be a part of an institution.
I'm gonna try to fast forward my writing process as to start writing earlier.
