23
So, last week was my induction week for the MA course in multimedia journalism here at Kent. Deciding to embark on this nine or so months of intensity was probably the hardest decision of my life.
 
Earlier in the year, I thought I'd made my mind up about studying political theory at York. I'd even started looking at accommodation. Yet, a nagging feeling prevented me from immediately accepting the offer of a place, and so I prevaricated for several months.
