I finished Year Two! I expected the second year of uni to just be more of the same of the first year, but it was a completely new experience. Going in as the "old" one, I was stunned to make a close group of friends in the first year. I never expected in a million years for that group to massively expand during the second year. I've created posters, I have done presentations ranging from feminist Tinkerbell to the damage of 50 Shades of Grey to the BDSM community. I have interviewed randoms about skulls. I have learnt about bees. I have raced chairs. I have read and helped judge primary school children's story competition entries. I have drunk many shots. (Ok, that isn't exactly a new thing). I have laughed with stress, and cried with stress. I have found even more friends who I will never forget, even if our paths now split. Now it is onto the next stage.... Next year is "placement year", and I get to work within the industry for 30+ weeks. The main issue being, what is the "English" industry? Currently I am discovering that it crosses over with many things, specifically marketing, and those other things have specific degrees, which means getting passed over for a more "suitable" applicant. It sucks, but I guess I just have to get better at explaining that I have all those skills PLUS the others. What do I want to do? Communicate. Write. Social Media. Publishing. Marketing. Any and all of the above. Mostly, I want to experience everything possible.
