Fingers Crossed

I know I'm a blog addict but I have to say that some things remain more important than blogging.

One such is awaiting me a few hours from now, dear reader. I have an interview on Wednesday morning for a job that would make a huge difference to my lifestyle.

I have to confess I don't really like interviews. I know, in my head, that I am competent. It's an IT job and I've proven myself time and again in that discipline. It's a job I can do and that I would enjoy doing.

Yet I don't find it easy to sell myself - deep inside there is a part of me that still feels incompetent and unworthy.

On top of that, I have to give a 10-minute presentation. That's okay in itself - I've given plenty over the years and many considerably longer - but I still need to prepare properly.

So I'm afraid that my blog entry for 11th October will be neither amusing nor thought-provoking nor deep and meaningful. In fact, you've just read it.

With luck, normal service will be resumed after the interview. In the meantime, feel free to think of me between 11am and noon, British Summer Time - all good wishes gratefully accepted.

Thanks for all your good wishes. I was never very good at making an objective judgement of my own performance. About as far as I'd go would be to say that I didn't make a complete fool of myself.

It's not just about whether I kicked arse, as Polly and BB3 suggest, but whether I kicked arse better than everyone else

Given I haven't heard anything yet, the probability is I haven't got this but, as TxRose points out, I have to believe that if I don't get it it's because there's something better around the corner. It's the only way I'll maintain the slender grasp on sanity that I currently have!
