Following all the events I’ve gone through in the last few weeks, I was kindly tipped off about a possible opening for writing an article for a newspaper as opposed to being the subject of them!
Last week I pitched 3 ideas to a quality broadsheet newspaper and was delighted to find out that 2 of my ideas were accepted. So whilst not in any way a commitment on their part, I’m in the process of writing out two articles and seeing if they get published.
I always wanted to be a journalist but was strongly discouraged at college so I did something else which I wasn’t too good at and failed it before trying something different.
Similarly I wanted to do history at High School but wasn’t allowed as that was more for girls and I had to do science and I was very good at Physics but not at Chemistry and yet I went on to get a degree and a Masters degree in History just a few years later.
I wonder if children today still have their lives and studies ruined by such stupid ideas and this was only around 1990.
I think I’ve proven that I’m actually pretty ok at history and even made a career out of it and I don’t think I’m a slouch in the writing department. My Chemistry career has yet to really take-off but who knows how long this virus will last! Maybe I should have taken Biology instead.
