“I am, and always will be, the optimist. The hoper of far-flung hopes, and the dreamer of improbable dreams.” -Doctor Who   I was halfway through preparing a blog-post about why Doctor Who is one of my favourite TV shows, when I stumbled upon this post by the amazing Halley, who got there before I did.

  A year ago, I made the decision to quit my job and return to college, to do my Masters degree in Applied Digital Media. Not only that: I packed my entire life into boxes and moved to Dublin.
