I have a degree in English Literature which essentially means that I have a £27,000 piece of paper that says I’m good at books.
One of the main skills that you learn as an English student is to think critically – to take wider intellectual concepts and apply them to whatever text you happen to be studying.
When I was at university, I often felt an obligation to live up to my image as a literature student.
I tried very hard to sound well read and informed and to provide a deep insightful commentary on whatever subject I happened to be discussing.
I graduated from university a couple of years ago and, since then, I’ve become concerned that I haven’t been intellectually stimulating my mind as frequently as I used to.
I used to be interested in critical observations about the flawed nature of human society.
Now, simple little things BLOW MY MIND.
