Hey-Low! I’m alive and kicking… writing regularly in a local college evening class and accepted to the prestigious Bath Spa University for a 3 year degree in Creative Writing. What the hell have I let myself in for? I’m technically unemployed at 38 right now, bills to pay and have challenged myself to set up my own consulting business in Social Media, Branding & Employee / Customer Experience. What a handful to take on… I must be mad. But fuck it, you only get one chance in life and I know more than anything that carving out the next 20 years of my life to make some proper money is the best use of my time. Even if it’s scary as hell and means I’m going to be working my ass off and getting into debt a lot. My back up plan? Sell my flat and finance the whole she-bang until I either make money or run out of money. Whichever happens first, I’m not sure but going to do my damnedest to try as much as possible to set myself up for a decent future and I know that isn’t going to happen sitting on my arse working for someone else.
Anyways… now that’s off my chest… what am I doing here? Well I’m just researching a few places and have found some great writing links… first up, ranks of the US Police force… very handy. Also Weird California. The other two links below are
