exposed and nervous with a touch of excitement

Some of you may be wondering, "I thought you didn't want to tell anyone about this?" and yes, this was my thinking till about 2 pm this afternoon, untill I came home and started preparing for my first real interview.

I've been on interviews before, but this is different. My 1st ever interview was for a grocery store where most everyone interviewing around me were wearing jeans and looked relaxed {I of course, was in a skirt and shaking like a leaf in the wind}. My second interview consisted of kicking back on the flood, of the day care where I currently work, talking to my future manager as if we were friends already.

I've had a few others since then, but this is my first real interview, for my first real full-time, 40 hour a week, structured, 3 weeks of vacation per year, job. To say that I have a few butterflies is an understatement, because did I mention this position is in the department and place that I have been hoping for: Pediatrics department in the Marshfield clinic, in Eau Claire.

I originally thought I'd keep it to myself and avoid disappointment, but what is this blog for anyway? Is it always going to be about the happy aspects of life? Is it always going to be about the things that are 100% certain in life? No, this is not a blog through rose covered glasses, this is the real me, exposed and nervous with a touch of excitement. I'm not expecting to get this amazing job right out of the gate, but it's a great opportunity to be able to even interview for what I am aiming for in my new career.

So at 4:25 tomorrow I will be walking down that long hallway. That long hallway I take every day, but instead of taking a right at the department where I'm interning I will continue on {in this outfit} to my interview.

I just hope I don't trip in my heels {I've been known to do that from time to time}.


  1. Hope it goes well, lovely outfit.

  2. Eek! I can only imagine the butterflies that are swirling around your belly right now. (Although you do look adorable -- where did you get that top?!) Good luck and take a few deep breaths. What helps me is taking several seconds to answer their question before I answer. I'll be thinking of you! :)

  3. You'll do great! Lots of praying for you today! Love you!
