What advice would I give my younger self? For one, to worry less about the future and to enjoy my studies a lot more. As a Humanities student I felt unsettled by all the well-meaning but probing questions by relatives (usually around Christmas time, but other holidays were also strong contenders). Was there anything I could do except for teaching, with my chosen course, after graduation? They were quite able to picture a career in medicine, business or law, but certainly not in the arts. Their uncertainty was sometimes more than a little disheartening.
