The lj maintenance people are my new idols  

Today, I practised the noble art of blagging to make up an essay on graphic design, as I am meant to be going on work experience in, oh , February. Not that I have any organised yet, or indeed know the first thing about graphic design. My bibliography is full of websites I didn't even bother looking at...oh, who am I kidding? I spent half an hour on it and spent the rest of my time proofreading fics. My work ethic has gone completely down the toilet.

Actually, in choosing a graphic designer, I came across something cool. I picked the Stone Twins, as they are the only ones I've ever heard of. If you are not stringently religious, and wouldn't mind having a good old laugh at the Pope's expense, take a gander at this - the RC Church's new corporate identity manual!!

(It's in 'Projects' under 'The Church', if that link won't bring it up.)

After a weekend spent bending poor oldcoralia13's ear by email, I've come to a decision on uni. </span>

Sorry, just got this.

Any degree. Any degree will do. English is best, but you mention Greek and History, for instance, as well, and those are fine. If you're doing sciences you may run into a problem: but then, if you're doing sciences you probably don't want to be an editor! I did English, but didn't get my degree, which is a long and boring story.

I'm pontificating again here! I'm not a huge expert on anything beyond what I actually do: I work for quite a small, specialist company, and I originally got the job when I read a report they'd done for a friend, wrote to them asking if they needed more readers/editors, and did a report on spec. But they were a lot smaller then.

Besides, that was specifically work to do at home, which could tie in or not with outside work. You'll want to start off as far outside the house as possible!

But I reiterate: finish your courses, get your qualifications, and then you have a lot of choices, or should.^_^

Yes, me and science have not gelled since I succeeded in blowing up soap. That's okay then.

Basic degrees are important, I guess. Ah sure I'll end up somewhere. Under a bridge maybe, but somewhere. Cheers!
