Why (controversially) Final Fantasy 8 will forever be my favourite game

I should probably start with a disclaimer, I love Final Fantasy 8 but I think every Final Fantasy game released pre-2003 needs to be played with some nostalgia behind it. I have no idea how old the people reading this will be, but I'm going to go on about how much I love this game anyway because it has played a huge part in my life… and it's my blog and I can do what I want.

Are you sure you're a real journalist?

Being a serious, well established journalist is a dream for many students studying for their NCTJ diploma and MA, and there’s nothing wrong with that. Unfortunately though, not everyone will actually achieve this and that’s ok too because, like myself, there are plenty of students who don’t want to walk that path. There seems to be this incredible stigma attached to anyone who doesn’t want to reach the highest highs of political journalism or become the next Fiona Bruce and this seriously needs to change.
