In just two days I’m going back to College!
Yes, this idiot has managed to get into College again! Last time I studied Practical Journalism, but then the whole Fake News situation happened and Journalism has never been the same.
That and admittedly, if I’m being honest with you, I slacked off. I didn’t study as hard as I should have. My qualification was an HND but as I couldn’t pass the final Shorthand test I had to pay just under £200 and it was dropped down to an HNC.
Insult to injury, Shorthand is almost obsolete in today’s world of Journalism. In fact, it is no longer a requirement in most courses since I have left.
Not exactly my best moment. Not to mention that during my two years studying there I had several incidents that have left some scars that have yet to truly heal. It wasn’t all bad as I did make three lifelong friends who continue to put up with me even now.
The course I am on now is called Creative Industries: Television. Pretty cool, right?
I had my enrollment day on the 10th and I attended a few information sessions before that so I have already met some of my soon to be classmates. I am bad at making friends and worse at keeping them so I’m hoping that history doesn’t repeat itself. I don’t want to jinx it but there are a couple I quite like so fingers crossed.
One of my biggest fears about returning to College was my age. I’m 22 and I was terrified that I was going to be the oldest in my class. True, I look a lot younger but I knew that awkward moment would come when they would find out just how old I am. If anything that would make it worse.
Yeah, turns out I had nothing to worry about as while I am one of the older students, I am not the eldest in the class. Phew!
Now, consider this a heads-up. Since I have learned my lesson from last time I will study a lot harder this time around and on top of that, I am still working a part-time job alongside College.
This means my content might be a bit late or I might have to change the days I post on. I plan to keep to my original schedule but if it isn’t working I will have to change it. Maybe posting only once a week, I’m not sure yet.
Basically, be prepared for some possible tweaks and changes around here.
With all of that said, I promise that I will do whatever I can to continue running Nerd Rambles. I have said this a few times but this little blog is my pride and joy. It’s the one thing I have done right in the past few years as sad as that might sound.
Wish me luck!
