Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

I got into an elite place and so have one of those degrees that are supposed to be worth more than their face value -- ie Oxford gives you an MA just for getting a BA. I went on to grad studies and was halfway to a BLitt and sketching out a DPhil thesis (all this in EngLit), when I realized I didn't know what I really wanted to do / found academic life lonely / believed society as we knew it was about to be overthrown and utterly rebuilt / considered I should join the working class and apply for a job as a postman, any and all of these and perhaps others... So I stopped there.
