Phew! Survived that phone screen interview!

I think I did well. I feel good about this job opportunity. It's exactly what I want at the salary range I want to be in. And STC involvement is okay! Good thing! I even gave her more information about STC and the STC conference.

I will know by next Wednesday if I make the next round, which is a face to face panel interview with the hiring manager and her team.

Now to be calm and not stressed for the next week. :)

I got a call from a corporate recruiter today. I talked with her for 20 minutes, and ended up with a phone screen interview with the hiring manager tomorrow afternoon.

*Fingers & toes crossed*

Driving Pet Peeve #1

As many of my local friends and family can attest, I hate driving. I especially hate driving when others don't follow the rules of the road.

My first driving pet peeve concerns drivers who *know* they are in the "turn lane only" lane so they can rush ahead of everyone, and then expect someone to *generously* let them back in before they have to make that turn. Excuse me? Your stupidity (there are signs) or arrogance do not mean *I* have to let you back in just because you put on your turn signal. Make the stupid turn, then turn around and come back. It's not my problem to deal with, and cursing at me and making hand/arm gestures when I won't let you in just makes me laugh. What's that quote?

"Lack of planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on my part."

Day 5 of Project 365

I worked out today. 20 training minutes in Wii Fit had me (excuse the imagery) dripping sweat and dog tired. Phew! I'm looking forward to the day I can do 60 minutes, but baby steps first.

Day 3 of Project 365

My husband was reading quite comfortably in this chair when our cat Willow came up and started meowing. Apparently, she wanted warmth and to share the chair. :)

Day 2 of Project 365

I've joined a group on Flickr that is attempting to do a photo a day for the 2009 year, called "Project 365."

Some folks don't even realize I wear glasses, since I only use them for computers and reading, so I thought it would be interesting to do an arms' length photo of myself wearing them.

My word for 2009.


Why? I look forward to the opportunities that 2009 is going to bring me - a new job, a new outlook on life, a new project that will stretch my boundaries.
