Hi. Im Harry. And I’m the newest member of the Chatter team… I’ve spent most of my time as a fanatic. A football and music fanatic- sometimes trying to get involved- with little success… I’m a Leeds Uni History grad originally from Norfolk, and I moved back to Leeds two months ago with a couple of bags of clothes and a Pete Doherty poster…
Despite my lack of preparation for post-graduation Leeds, I was determined to find carve out a worthwhile media career… Fortunately I was able to convince the guys at Chatter that my career should begin with them. I didn’t necessarily know what to expect from my first week at Chatter, but one thing I did/still do expect is… that I have a lot to learn.
With this in mind, I guessed I would detail seven things I’ve learnt in my seven days since becoming a fully ‘chatterised’ member…
One: No-one sympathises with my woes regarding the ungodly 9am starts of the working world.
Two: Business cards remain an exciting novelty.
Three: Charcuterie and crispy rolls do not form the basis for a balanced and healthy lifestyle.
Four: Despite the fact that I have made first foray into graduate work, I can still pass for seventeen, even whilst at work.
Five: Novelty/floral print jumpers are unfortunately not the norm in the working world.
Six: It’s no use explaining to people what I actually do for a living. My mum is still convinced I’m involved in something unsavoury.
Seven: Two teas, one black coffee- three sugars.
Next week hopefully I’ll learn something worthwhile, and further convince the guys that I can one day be worthwhile having around. With Doherty on the wall, what can go wrong?
