    Thank you so much for this wonderful post!
    I have taken a course in online writing and i’m looking forward to beginning a new one.
    I would really love to start applying soon. I am ever so busy with my day job that it would be impossible to juggle university classes with!
    However, my previous online course was a complete success i go to do it at my own time and i learnt so much!
    I feel like im a step closer to my dream career!

    Thanks again!
