Lets talk dream jobs...

Well pretty self explanatory.. I am a journalism student, so I want to be a journalist! SHOCK!

This is a question that you get asked continuously throughout your life and I don't know whether you ever stop getting asked the question really. We all go through the stages when we are younger of becoming a teacher or a nurse or a train driver or an astronaut… and in all honesty I think our dream jobs change all the time! I know mine do!

I finally decided about a year ago that I wanted to write, I wanted a job where I could be creative and write. When looking round universities, degrees like psychology (which I originally thought would be my dream) was just not and then I happened to sit in on a journalism lecture and knew this is what I wanted to do.

So what area do I want to go into? Honestly I have no real idea. I love the idea of being an investigative journalist and uncovering the truth in all corners of the world and its an area that really grabs me but equally PR is very enticing.

I suppose only time will tell as to what I go into and it will probably change next week again.
What is your dream job? Or career aspirations?

I’ve got PoTS...

So for the past 3 years I’ve been suffering with symptoms of what I now know is PoTS. PoTS or postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome is a form of dysautonomia meaning my autonomic nervous system doesn’t work properly. Your autonomic nervous system (ANS) controls vital functions in the body such as: heart rate, breathing, blood pressure and digestion. So in people who have PoTS we experience symptoms such as: low blood pressure, high heart rates, nausea, fainting, pre-syncope, headaches, dizziness, heat intolerance, sickness, food intolerances, fatigue and shortness of breath to just name a few!

Applying for university...

I applied to university in October 2017 and will be starting in September 2018..hopefully! I was accepted on to 5/5 of the courses I applied to with 4 conditional offers and one unconditional offer, these offers included 2 russel group universities. I did university tests and completed an individual interview as well as a group interview. This was a highly requested post and as the next year are starting to look around universities and complete UCAS applications it was a perfect time to write this post.
Personal Statement Your personal statement really needs to stand out, you need to show that you are excited and engaged in the course but NEVER use the word passion!!! (Everyone uses it and its better to prove you have a passion rather than just stating it.) Its good to do an introduction - why are you excited about applying for the course, show an interest in a particular part and show your knowledge. The second paragraph you could talk about your current courses - what you have enjo…
