I've enrolled myself on to a (free) Journalism course offered by my local borough.
Our goal at the end of the two weeks is to create a DVD on the summer services that the borough offers, interviewing the public and trying our hand at being top notch journalists and cameramen/women (people?).
Not only is it a good chance to meet new people, gain some skills, and a benefit for my CV, but it's a pretty good reason to get me off my backside and do something constructive.
Who knows, maybe in the foreseeable future you may just see my name in an article near you. Or not.
