Finished my Masters!!!!!


I cannot really believe it, but I handed in my Thesis on friday 25th January and my Masters in Professional Writing is complete! Never will there be a more apt time to overuse exclaimation mark!!!

What started two years ago just when I got made redundant, culminated yesterday with my completed feature film script.

In that two years I was able to get features published in the nationsl papers, get interviewed about my blog on Newstalk and get a job as a journalist in Newsfour – great paper!

So if anyone is despairing of having lost their job – my unanimous advice is go back to studying. Not only does it occupy your mind and your mind, but it give you kudos with potential employers.

Study is the recessionary answer!
