The Graduate Profiles. Yep. Following on from the University Series posts which went down a treat I decided to branch out, shining the torch on students who are now graduates. It is the New Year and there is a NEW category and feature coming your way.
I just finished my English degree and I read some fantastic literature, I thought I would share some of the novels I studied. Sometimes I both hated and loved looking for the deeper meanings behind these books and the messages they painted.
After reading this article and having spent 3 years in University dealing with some of what I’m to discuss I decided to draw up a list of things you should definitely not do as a student. Not only because it makes you look like a douche, but because you are making a douche out of yourself in public.
I have done a few University Series posts over the past few months and I definitely don’t want any Freshers/Newbies, graduates or anyone interested in reading them to miss out! So here is a reminder! Also if there are any University/undergraduate/ graduate type topics you would like me to provide my two-cents on, let me know.
Looking for a job after University is hard. It can really take a toll and knock you off point if you don’t keep yourself directioned.
Shakespeare wasn’t a very good-looking fella was he? I think by the time most of us have an option to study English Language and Literature most people will check whether Shakespeare is on the syllabus and go the other way or only half-hearted commit to the course praying that one will understand Shakespeare better than the times at school where nothing made sense… nothing.
When we are old and scaly with mortgages and wrinkles (tad bit harsh soz!) we will look back on our lives and think about the time we were students and appreciate the cold beans, lack of electricity because you couldn’t afford to go out and sleep in a warm room. You have to tighten your belt somewhere! Yes, the benefits of being a student. I mean other than the educational benefits …obviously.
Depression. A word many people shy away from, don’t like to discuss or can’t. A word many hold preconceived negative stigma towards. The Blurt Foundation are an online community, their mission is to stamp out the stigma… one word at a time. They provide support through their website, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Pinterest. They also offered a mentoring scheme for its users, pairing up mentors and users so no-one is ever alone. The Blurt Foundation exists to support, help and inspire people who suffer from depression.
I seem to be unable to write a review for this book. I think it’s because this book is very important to me and without my facial expressions and actual voice talking about this non-profit organisation the effect isn’t as influential.
I’ve recently taken my final final final exams before my 3 years at University are averaged out and I get a degree which will justify me dishing out moneyzzz, in some form or another stalling life for 3 years to come to University and study the subject I love. The worth is measured through numbers and averages and hard work (yeah that’s an element). I digress, anyway, so I had my last exam let me tell what happened next.
