I just realized that I might not be able to post over the next four days, or at least not post each day. I'm going to the parent's house for Thanksgiving and due to their extremely slow internet and the Tryptophan-induced haze I anticipate being in, it might not happen. I apologize in advance. I guess there goes my aspirations of posting every single day for a month. Here's the plan: I'll do my best to post every day, you do your best to read every day, we both try not to kill our families while giving thanks and being full of holiday cheer, and we'll call it a deal.
Today was my interview with Big Important Company and man was I nervous. Last night I finished ready my "Technical Writing for Dummies" book and did some research on the company. And freaked (froke?) out about how little I really know about computers. I was freaking out on the way to the interview. I was freaking out while waiting in the big important-looking lobby. I was freaking out while I (in my suit) shook hands with the (denim-clad) guys who interviewed me. The only time I wasn't freaking out was while I was talking. And boy did I talk. I talked and talked and they asked questions about some of the things I said and I talked some more. And then I took an editing test and then talked some more. I think I might have actually convinced them that I know something about computers. It was good experience and I'm glad I didn't look like a total fool, which is what I'm always afraid of. We'll see if I get a second interview.
