Interviews- Love/Hate Relationship

I have recently and quite spectacularly blown a couple of job interviews. Sitting there, facing my accusers (I mean, interviewers : ) J'accuse.) I felt like a volcano had erupted - in my stomach - or an atomic bomb had gone off - in my brain. Why did these interviews go so badly? 1. I was arrogant and was not prepared as a result. 2. I was overly nervous - just because. 3. I couldn't answer questions for which I knew the answers because of the atomic bomb going off in my brain. 4. I wanted a lollypop. (Did I just type that?) You don't know this, but I used to *love* interviews. "What's going on?" I asked myself. So, tonight I thought I'd watch an online presentation about ways to interview well. The presentation began by illustrating two (male) *Superhero* poses that I could use to alleviate any nervousness just before an interview (I kid you not), so I turned the presentation off because it clearly wasn't going to help me. Instead, I thought I'd share my interview story/stories here because, quite frankly, I've got nothing to lose. I feel like I'm going to be OK during my next interview, which I hope is very soon. Signed, SuperSandyWoman - chest out, a fist on each hip, and two feet that are three feet apart yet firmly planted on the floor : )

Facebook Rant (sort of)

Have you noticed how some folks feel like they need to justify why they're on Facebook? Oh, I'm only there to monitor my children or I'm on Facebook for work or I just post every once in a while and on and on... It drives me nuts. People, don't sign up for any social network if it's not fun for you. It becomes a chore. Who likes to read chore-speak? I love Facebook. Facebook gives me a chance to catch up with my family, who are scattered in the lower and upper 48. I also can quickly stay up-to-date with my friends. I actually pare my friends down periodically to real FTF friends. How am I going to see all of those beautiful travel photos or read those dorky jokes or discover my people - the DOG people : ) I like people. I do not, however, like FB justifications... and that's all I have to say about that.
