Careful preparation

I am especially neurotic today.

I woke up in the middle of the night - at almost exactly 2 am - and I couldn't go back to sleep. My ass hurt (thanks, busy Sunday!) and my head was filled with Lucy's wedding. I planned out the wedding shower menu (it has to be a brunch! Breakfast foods are so delightful and my sister can contribute her heavenly cinnamon rolls!) before going back to sleep.

Was anxious all day at work, waiting for a noon marketing meeting with the VP of the company. Wanted to make a glowing impression, as that interview is hanging over my head. Performed perfectly well, as far as I'm concerned, but feel even less confident for no good reason.

Am wondering why I'm even interviewing.

While being struck with the occasional cocky bout of: "they would be fucking dumbasses to pass on me! I can do this! I deserve this!"


I was going to cram for my interview tonight, but that idea fell apart when I realized that 8th and Ocean would be on at 8, 8:30 and 10:30.

Sad but true.

I ran four miles today. That won't help me get the job, either.

4 miles? Sheesh, I just got back from running 3.1 and I'm wiped. Why anyone would care to run more than 2 miles is a mystery to me.

Thanks, S!

I tend to agree with you, PT. I've never even liked running. The last few weeks, though, it's been my favorite workout at the gym. I did 4.3 today. Go figure.
