I get the feeling from reading your blog that you are still young. Do you mind if I ask how old you are? Please don’t take offence, I’m just curious.

No offence taken at all Kelly. I’m 24, so I suppose that does make me young.
I’m intrigued about why you’re interested. Do I come across a certain way that makes it obvious that I’m young? Do you think I should be doing something differently?

Hey great response. yes you come across as someone who would be really good doing a higher degree at university. I feel you have a sharp intellect that can be developed further.

That’s very kind Kelly. Thank you.
I’ve considered going back to study a few times, but it’s not something which would fit around my current employment, and I’m quite happy with my current employment. That said, if I were to go back to study, at least now I would make a better choice than when I was 18 and was following a career path which I later discovered wasn’t where my real interests lie.

I retrained too. I took a paycut to do it, but it was worth it. Interesting about your radio blog. I just read a history of 1ZB in NZ. There were some great links to the West Island (Australia to you) including 2UE. Wonderful character called Uncle Scrim.

I’m considering it still Kelly, but university life is not something that mixes well with me. If I can get in, learn what needs to be learned, and get out, then it’s fine, but ultimately the social and political atmosphere of most universities is incredibly off-putting to me.
I may very well be putting myself at a disadvantage by taking this stance (which was learned the hard way, I might add), but it weighs heavily in my deliberations.
As for New Zealand radio. I don’t know much about it, but would love to learn more. Do you have any links or publications which you could recommend?
