Hitting the right note

Fin started freelancing when he was 17, roughly two years before starting University. Arguably, this is more than the average teenager would be doing at that age. ‘I knew I wanted to study journalism and in order to get onto my course, I had to gain experience,’ he told me, ‘I interned at a newspaper and […]

Thoughts from the Outside

My analysis on freelance writing sites has sparked a flurry of interesting discussion. At first, I was of the view that freelance sites could be a feasible way of making, however, after speaking to other freelancers, I am beginning to realise that these sites cannot be relied on. I decided to create a freelancing questionnaire, […]

Car’dor

Dear you and everyone else, I laid in bed last night and I was thinking how amazing ‘car’dor’ would be for a blog title. I know I am losing the plot by laying in bed on a Saturday night thinking about what I am going to blog about next. The reason for the weird title […]

Penny for the Poor

Dear you & everyone else, I think this week has been the worst week in the history of weeks. I’ve had arguments with people I hold most dear and I think I’ve pretty much lost the plot. It all started really well after the weekend, I had my friend Alex come over from Spain and […]

Boggle Eyed: Are Graduates Realistic Enough?

You’d think now that University had finished I’d have both eyes glued to books and forgetting the world around me, well, thats how I’d planned it but it hasn’t worked out that way! As I recently posted on grads.co.uk, it’s hard at the moment to find a semi-decent job after finishing University, particularly in an […]

Bunny Hopping

I am seriously in need of some intellectual conversation or something stimulating to read. I’m beginning to seriously consider doing some housework, which really shows how bored I am getting! It’s been a while since I’ve posted, due to the copious amounts of University work that needed to be completed, such as my dissertation. Thankfully, […]

An ironic tribute to The Beatles

It’s hard to believe where the time has gone this year. It only feels like yesterday that it was New Years Eve and I was quite happily watching the Harry Potter box set with my other half. Now, we are in March. I’m supposed to ‘march’ on and choose a career path that is right […]
