Week 16: The Random Prompt One

A few random prompts this week. Pick one or more to write an entry about, as short or as long as you like.

"I am proud of myself this year because…"

... I have learnt to do the things that scare me the most. For a long time I didn't see how I was going to finish writing and editing my dissertation and I didn't even want to admit that I needed help. And then I plucked up the courage to "confess" to my supervisor and she helped me get back on track. I often imagine the worst outcome and the reality isn't nearly as bad. I'm glad I continued to battle with the writing, because finally (and almost unexpectedly) it was finished.

I've had the courage to apply for jobs and to go to interviews in German. Again difficult, but once they're over, I wonder why I was so scared? And now sitting here at my desk, I've got to ring another Swiss bank to set up an interview, even though I don't know the outcome of the 3rd interview which I'm hoping for. I'm not good at working several open leads, it scares me, but hey, I'm tackling it :-)
I'm proud that I've kept moving in a forward direction, no matter how slowly :-)
