link party ♢ weekly wishes #3

{{source}}

Time for Round 3 of Melyssa's Weekly Wishes link party!

My last wish was centred around an application I posted for an online Nutrional Therapy degree course that I want to dedicate the next 4 years to.

Guess what folks, I got an interview >.<

SO, I guess my wish this week will be that I prepare well and pull off the Skype interview so that they respond with a big fat "hell YEAH lady, we want you on our course, come on down!"

 Or a simple "your application has been successful" will suffice too I suppose!

While it is scary putting my personal goals and dreams out there for all to see every week, especially the prospect of being unsuccessful and looking like a failure,  it is at the same time a great push to get myself out there and try extra hard. If I kept this to myself I possibly wouldn't be as motivated, comfortable in the knowledge that if I don't get it then it doesn't make a difference because nobody knew about it anyway. Writing about it keeps me on my toes, keeps me hungry, gives me that extra little fight to really step up to the challenge and achieve something good.

It's not too late for you to jump on the Weekly Wishes gravy train, if for no other reason than to happen upon some really awesome blogs. I've definitely gained a few new additions to my Bloglovin reading list from clicking and commenting on blogs in this link up. 

{{p.s ~ Google reader has officially shut up shop, so if you haven't made the switch already you can follow Stars in Jars on Bloglovin here ^.^}}

  5. Good luck with your interview! I agree- posting your wishes for all to see is very scary, because it makes failure seem even worse. The upside, though, is that people will like you whether you win or fail- they'll simply respect you for trying.

  7. Congrats on the getting the interview. I know you are going to do awesome in your little interview and they will love you because you seem so eager to do this. People want to hire people who are passionate so just let them see how you really feel and that job is as good as yours! I agree with you on how writing/sharing a goal keeps you on your toes and makes you more keen to achieve it. I'm always nervous to put myself completely out there before I am sure of something, but it is nice to share before because other people can be so motivating! :)
