Interviews, anatomy, and search engines

You know what I love? A roommate who offhandedly mentions “Oh, by the way. I have a few boxes of Girl Scout cookies that I’m not going to eat so you can have them.” I think I’ll keep her around. I also really love good days, of which I am having right now. I am also having a Thin Mint and getting sad that these cookies are only sold what feels like once every decade.

I just finished up an interview to be a student ambassador at my school, which means I would be a tour guide and an overnight host to high school students. This is a job I’ve wanted to have the moment my first tour started back in the day (like a year and a half ago). I literally applied the second I saw a flier for it on campus. I don’t know why this is my weird dream job, but it is. Also, they’re doing emergency hiring for the spring semester, and if I get the position, I’d get $50. Cha ching. That’s like half of a text book, but hey, that’s one less half I have to buy.

I’ve never been interviewed before because I’ve never had a “real” job. My main job in high school was babysitting for friends of the family, so that doesn’t really count. I walked into the interview and was introduced to the two interviewers (one was a student ambassador and I think one was the president of the ambassadors. I got to deal with the head honcho. I was a little freaked out). I had no idea what questions to expect, and the interview started off by the president saying “So, our first question isn’t really a question. It’s more of a command. Tell us a story.” It was at that very moment my life suddenly flashed before my eyes and I realized I didn’t even know who I was. But I wasn’t thinking that. My only thought was “…crap. Wait. Blog.” So I started talking somewhat coherently about my blog, and not only did they both know what Celiac disease was, but one of them had a friend who had it. The wave of relief I felt then was probably similar to jumping out of an airplane and realizing that your parachute does in fact open. That’s the only comparison I can think of. Sorry it doesn’t really make sense.

The rest of the interview went pretty well. They gave me the name of one of the buildings on campus and I had to tell them about it as if they were visitors. Luckily I got the science building, and I was in there for 10 hours a week last semester and 6 hours now. I owned that question. I don’t remember any of the other questions because I was focused on sounding intelligent, which is very hard when you just woke up from a nap like I did prior to the interview. Still not sure how good of an idea that was.

Oh and about the anatomy test and search engine thing. I got my second 100% on an anatomy quiz the other day and I’m really proud of myself. I just wanted to share that because that class is kicking my butt and it’s a big accomplishment for me. And as for search engines, someone found my blog today by googling “my boyfriend called me pudgy.” I’m concerned on many, many levels.

One thought on “Interviews, anatomy, and search engines

  1. Search terms can indeed be very concerning! Someone once found my blog by searching for “teachers too friendly with students.”

    Then there are the really confusing ones, like “jak zrobic 3 job thiefem w twilights.” Um, what? I can’t even read that, let alone figure out what it has to do with my blog.
