Nerves

So, tomorrow's my interview. I am seriously, seriously nervous. I've already pretty much packed all applicable things that need to go with me: my resume, my letter of recommendation, my references, a notepad, and two pens (just in case). I have my iPad charging, so that I have something to do after the interview to calm myself back down. I've got my makeup set out to put on in the morning, and my straightening iron is under the bathroom sink, ready to be used. I have what I'm wearing tomorrow already picked out; I even went out and bought underwear that shouldn't show under my dress pants.

So I'm very nervous, but I think I'm approaching prepared. I hope I'm prepared. I want to be prepared. I want this to go well. I want this job. I need this job.

But I'm not going to do myself any favors if I sit here for hours on end fretting about it. If I do that, I'll just make myself feel worse, and that's the last thing I want to do.

I did manage some writing on Wicked Ones. Yes, I know I need to update both [community profile] eternal_sailorm and DarkMagick.net with all these new chapters. I'm running so far behind in updating, and I really don't have any excuses, except that I'm lazy. I'm lazy, and I'm forgetful, and I just keep not doing it. Plus there is the fact that we're posting a lot more -- and more quickly -- in this fandom than we ever have before. I've written and posted this quickly before -- but not at a sustained pace like this.

Anyway, I'm going to see about heading on to bed, so that I can get up at an appropriate o'clock for getting ready to go and be on time. Well, be early, because the first bus that could get [personal profile] katsuko on to IKEA on time leaves at 8:40, so we have to arrive at least then.

And didn't I just say that I was going to quit worrying about all of this? Because I totally meant to.

Besides, now I have Roo on me again, so using the keyboard is going to be even more difficult. I'm gonna quit while I'm ahead.

Wish me luck tomorrow!
