  1. I notice you’ve given yourself the title of “Journalist” but not listed where you obtained your journalism degree. Suggests to me you think you’re a joy lost just because you write and get paid for it.
    This is akin to me calling myself doctor (not a Dr.)

    • I always felt a little uncomfortable calling myself a journalist – for the exact reason you state here. It is, however, what I am employed as – it’s what’s on my payslip. Luckily, the skills of journalism can be learned outside of a degree course, unlike medical professions 🙂
