1. To be honest, when you were applying to university you had no idea what you wanted to do.
3. And it always seemed pretty cool. There’s volcanos, for a start.
5. Just look at this! Geography seemed like as good a choice as any.
6. But then you get there, and it’s non stop “so is that just colouring in?” jokes.
9. And if they’re not mocking you about colouring in, they think you just learn flags and capital cities all day.
10. Or they accuse you of studying geography to avoid doing any hard work.
12. But you know this, so you can’t get too angry.
13. Having said that, when you meet people who still doubt global warming it’s hard not to get a bit angry.
14. You soon realise that there’s a tense rivalry between human and physical geographers.
15. Now human geography really is easy.
