I have a Bachelors degree in creative writing and film studies, and a Masters' degree in writing for children. I'm kind of proud, but I think the more accurate term would be satisfied. You see, if I got anything less than than a 1st I would have been disappointed in myself for not doing better. I can't be proud of myself for achieving what I expected of myself, only going beyond.
I do not. When I was younger, I always wanted to go to Uni for English and Creative Writing. Even though it never happened, I still read and learn new things each day on my chosen subjects. I may not be taking classes, I may never hang a degree, but neither thing will stop me from learning.
me too, and I'm a great believer in people spending what time they can in the 'university of life'. From experience, it makes you better adapted to understand the picture, rather than just your own group, who probably see things as you do, come from the same economic level.... and, again from experience, more interesting to have lunch or coffee with.
