It would be wrong to gloat and say "I told you so." In memorandum would be, and is, better.


So much death for this senseless war. My god.

Today was the big interview. I of course was quite nervous----it was my first non-academic interview (since I've worked most of my 4.5 years at Millersville for the University with a brief retail stint) in quite some time. So naturally, I was nervous. I dressed to kill and nearly freaked out because my socks were the wrong color. As I waited for the #16 bus to head into town, it was not the cold that was making me shake, it was my nervousness.

I got downtown early and headed to the courthouse. Downtown was strangely deserted---we were supposed to have an ice storm so I suppose everyone took the day off. I swallowed all the yucky nervousness (which tasted like badly cooked chicken) and marched over to the courthouse.

Then I shined. It turned out to be a very good interview for the internship. I got an idea of what the county GIS department does and generally felt it was a good fit. Now...it'll be a few days before I hear back because there's two other people who applied for the same two posistions, giving me a 66% chance of getting placed.

Wish me luck!

(By the way, I finally graduate May 7th.)


UPDATE: I got the job. I am now a GIS Intern.

Guess what? I got my first interview! It is for an internship at Lancaster County GIS. Wish me luck!

Oh yes, I suppose, since it is a new year and 2005 will be a much better year than 2004 was, I'll start writing again.
