My plan for this blog was to post something after every single time I went outside or did something that got me closer to passing Selection. I’m afraid to say I have utterly failed at that. In my defence it is because I’ve been real busy this week with MMA and cardio. Two hours of Muay Thai, four of BJJ, no clue how much time I’ve spent running and shite. Gonna test my 3k run and physical tomorrow, so look forward to that if you’re a regular. First time I’ll let you know my exact stats 😛
I’ve also gotten a good-to-go on the rough draft of my research proposal, which means if I’m structured, ordered and disciplined (I’m just about 1 out of those 3… >.<) I’ll be able to finish off my dissertation before Selection. Yeah, finishing an MSc three months early. No pressure or anything.
Last night was the first time the link on the military’s website to the application was active, so I went in to apply straight away. However, two things happened preventing me from finishing it:
1. They want translations of any non-Norwegian documents attached. I have no idea if that applies to English as well… But I’ve e-mailed both the Norwegian Embassy and FOS (the Application and Selection part of the military in Norway), so hopefully I’ll know that by Monday.
2. I couldn’t actually fit in my degree in the little box they gave me… Granted, my degree title is ridiculously long, but it still made me feel slightly confident I’ll at least get through Application 😀
Slightly more personal-stuff-y: I dropped something 110 quid on MMA stuff yesterday (club kit, hoodie, pull-up bar). I need it to compete (ARRGH! More money spent), but I’m also supposed to get my driver’s license -.- Damnit.
