Pete Kirby Told Me To Quit Uni

This term we had a day with Pete Kirby author of thisness.co.uk and all-round creative guru.

He set us 7 tasks in 7 hours for us to explore our creativity with words.

If you want to try them at home the tasks were:

- Write a leaving note (you’re quitting your university course, write a note explaining why)
- Invent a word (or a few words)
- Write your own motto
- Write your own manifesto
- Give a sales pitch trying to sell your shoes
- Give a sales pitch trying to sell someone you love
- Give a sales pitch on your secret weapon, something that you can do, a talent, or a creative technique.

The tasks were great fun, the longer you spent on it, the more possibilities came to mind. The leaving note was a great laugh, hearing everyone in class coming up with hilarious reasons on why they’re quitting at 9.30 in the morning.

Here is the first of my two choices of leaving note if I were to be quitting my degree:


The note is addressed to my lecturer Darren Whittington. It reads:
“Dear Darren, I am leaving this course to write my book about my life. At first I didn’t think it would sell, but the twist at the end is that I’m actually a bear masquerading as a quite handsome gentleman.
I also have to leave uni because I’m secretly a bear and if you have food in your pockets I will attack you… also I have lasers in my paws so I’m off to scare the shit out of David Attenbourogh obviously.”

The second note I wrote is shorter and slightly more self explanatory:

Blunt, but to the point.

Heading back after a chilled weekend. Made the cat a fort. She's bloody ungrateful. Can't help but feel that my mum just hasn't put in the effort with this year's easter egg hunt... G&Ts with grandad. Proper job.
