I just had my first job interview. I don’t even know if it went well, because, seeing as it’s my first interview, I don’t have what to compare it against.

Even if I give it alot of thought, I still can’t decide. On the one hand, my face was beet red half the time when I had to answer “The Question”, why do I want to work there. My oh my, but wasn’t I stumbling along. How do you avoid saying, “Because it’s nearby, it’s a respectable place, as opposed to McDonalds or something, and it pays well?” Not that McDonalds isn’t respectable, it’s just, like, “Oh, so you flip burgers for a living…nice.” Ya know what I mean?

Anyways, on the other hand, I was able to lean back a bit, and say some random stuff, ask questions, be honest about my lack of accounting skills, which apparently, is what they’re looking for, and generally look normal.

At least my mom was waiting outside, but hey.
I guess I did my best, and not the rest is up to G-d.

In other aspects of my crazy boring life, hah, I went to a lecture on Sunday. The lecturer happens to be one of my favorite, and I watch tons of his lectures online. It was the weirdest thing, seeing him live. I was thinking, “HEY, I KNOW YOU!” because, yeah, it felt like I did.
THere was supposed to be a Q&A part, but he kinda went overtime. So he graciously allowed us teens to come back at 10, which would be after he spoke to the adults, or our parents. 🙂
A bunch of us teens came back at 10, but he didn’t end until 10:30. I really wanted to ask him two questions, in a private session, but someone asked me to give my place up in line, and allow older women to go first. I agreed, and before I knew it, it was midnight. I had fun with my friends while waiting, and when the lecturer came into the main room, we wrote down questions and had our own mini-Q&A.
I still had a Q to ask but he was so tired; it was 2:00 a.m. by then, and so I went home, dissappointed and exhausted.
I slept from 3:30-9:49, where I got up, threw on some clothes, and ran down the block to get my hair cut. Back home, looking gorgeous, I fell asleep until 2:45 p.m.
That’s what I call a happy ending.
I passed my written CPR/AED test at lifeguarding, and I am now officially certified; I just need the certificate!

I was way behind on Nano, and I still am, but I wrote 2,000+ words last night, so I am slowly catching up.
I have no idea how to end my story, but I guess I’ll cross that bridge when-if, no, when I get to it.

Anywazzles, I gotta hit the schoolbooks now. Wish me luck in lifeguarding, in getting the job, and in general!
I love you all!

Keep UNraveling!

    ps all you guys i wud ttly give more info on the job but some bad experience with relating things too detailed in public taught me to say no more tahn necessary. plus, if i started like, saying sth revealing and one day got mad at my gfuture boss and wrote nasty things and then they happend to read it- ouch. lets just say bad karma would be worse!
