Interview me... I dare you...

I somewhat dread going on interviews. I really am a very poor interviewee. I get very uncomfortable and nervous and my brain totally stops functioning. What makes it worse is that I'm naturally shy. It takes a while for me to warm up to people. Just about everyone I know tells me they had no idea I was like what I'm like until they actually talked to me for a while, since it's not like I approach others usually. This is also why I didn't really date in high school.

But anyhow... you don't really have this kind of time in an interview. So I usually come off as quiet, reserved, and somewhat stand-offish. It's been 5 years since I've interviewed anywhere, so maybe I've conquered this a bit, but probably not to the degree that I'd like to.

I'm hoping this will open up a new door for me. I honestly wasn't in love with my job. Sure, I understand the need for software testing, but I just never got into it as much as I felt I should've. There were many times I considered looking for something else. But I really did like the atmosphere and many of the people I worked with. That's something that's harder to find, I think. So hopefully I can find that again, as well as finding a job that I really enjoy doing.

I'm going to guess that you stayed at the job as long as you did because seeing Ryan every morning reminded you that life IS worth living.


You'd better believe it. I started timing when Ryan would get up to go get water for his tea, just so I could run into him "accidentally".
