Ijo Pona is the Harrogate adventure blog written by a Funny Little Man. Andy is a freelance web designer in Harrogate and he is also a well-received sound artist and runs a mastering studio in Yorkshire. The Wire Magazine once described him as "... difficult to dislike." Still at my most enthusiastic and naive.
Funny Little Man – Harrogate
I have been humming and haa-ing for years now about a return to education – I have been accepted on Bachelor Of Laws, Masters Of Arts, BA Degrees and National Diplomas – but I have not stuck them out…
Why the flackiness?
Because I am already achieving. I am a middle weight designer specialising in UX and the subjects for the degrees I would study keep me hungry for knowledge. They make me a better designer.
I would just be getting a new certificate for old thinking. I would not be learning anything new if I was to go back to uni.
The certificates would just be there to stop my imposter syndrome and not to open up any new avenues. I would never be rid of my imposter syndrome, even with the certificates. And, I hope I never do get rid of my imposter syndrome.
It keeps me keen. It keeps me hungry.
