Monarchy

Rosebud Beach

After having a break from my usual daily source I thought I’d check in and read a shock announcement that acknowledged the passing of Queen Elizabeth II hours earlier.

The following days were thrown into chaos spent watching endless broadcasts reliving the seventy year reign of the longest monarch in British history and the events that preceded it.

If you hadn’t guessed already I thought I’d take this opportunity to flag quietly that I’m a monarchist.

Which monarchy is that one? The British of course.

I stumbled upon the perfect crisis antidote a beach walk to breathe in the sea air.

A degree in English

What sets me apart in this competitive landscape is that I have a proper bachelor’s degree majoring in English literature. I am quite proud of my stand-alone arts degree. I think it is important to select a field you would like to pursue and dedicate yourself to completing a whole something. Looking back, it was a bit faddish to do an additional major in cultural studies as some of these modern majors tend to disappear or get repackaged, but the classics always remain the same.
