I've decided it’s time for a rebrand. Why? I'm going back to school. More specifically, in October I'm going back to university (part-time) to do an MA in Modern & Contemporary Literature.

On Sunday, my second-cousin (who teaches A'Level English Literature to middle-class kids) told me that 1) her students largely don't read books for pleasure, and 2) they freely litter they essays with text message speak, such as 'da' and '4'. She seemed to think this was merely the progression of the English language. I think it’s appalling.

But I'm sure I can't have forgotten everything I learnt in my expensive public school education... it wasn't even that long ago. We'll see...
