Dear Aunty Norah

I’m just about to start uni.  After years and years of school, doing what I’m told, straightening up and flying right, I feel like I’m ready to cut loose.  Do you have any suggestions for me?

Dear Studious

Frankly, I only have one piece of advice for you.  Don’t go.  Cut class already and start taking courses at the university of life.  Then you might end up like me writing a crappy advice column in a free weekly music mag.  Life is gooooood!  Or, go, get yourself a degree, then get a job, settle down, pay taxes, retire and then move on to the next place when your time’s up.

Either way, if you’re so switched on that you’re asking me for advice about university, maybe just make sure you don’t do one of those really expensive courses, because you may not ever be able to pay back all that money.
