pressure

job-interview-web

so today i had a job interview. and i’m totally not going to go into specifics, because i have no clue if i have the job. and i wont until like, the end of the next week. 

job interviews are tricky….you want to present yourself in the best light, but you don’t want to seem fake. you want to be genuine, but you don’t want to allow negative information get through. you want them to get you, but you don’t want them to get you. if you know what i mean.

to prepare for this interview, i picked the minty-est green dress and paired it with the reddest of cardigans and flats. because who needs to practice interview questions or review the perfect answers when you have a minty-green dress and red flats!?

not i, apparently. BECAUSE WHO CARES ABOUT LONG TERM LIFE GOALS WHEN YOU HAVE CUTE SHOES!?!

i do hope i get this job. i mean, besides the whole one income thing sort of sucking, i actually really liked the atmosphere of the office and the other employees. the little tour i had was great, and i actually think i’d fit in really, really well.

and if i don’t get the job? well, i’ll be sad. DUH. but i’ll deal. because that’s what this season of john and my life has been all about…learning to deal when things are hard. we’ve both grown so very much during this period, learning to support each other with our all from afar and learning to lean on each other when everything else seems to fall away. we’ve become accustomed to life throwing us huge curve balls…and sometimes striking us out. but we keep on going, together. 

but between you and me?

i rocked it.
