WTF? I am so confused. Nearly had a heart attack when the phone rang and I saw it was a non-local area code and answered it to accept a phone interview instead of a job offer (so, ok, not "three" yet unless I make it past that level to an actual campus visit, but whatever).
"Why yes, thank you, that would be lovely. That time would work, thank you very much." Where the hell is this place? Luckily my momma drilled me well in manners, because I didn't remember applying there.
No wonder. I look it up and find the ad that Slowpoke McGee College posted months and months ago and am even more confused: why did I apply to this, apart from being on a roll one day? And why on earth would they want to interview me? My PhD is not even the correct discipline listed! Hmm.
So I am not particularly hopeful about anything coming of this, but I guess I will get more interview practice. Because I need more interview practice? Sigh. I feel like I died and went to hell and am being punished for all eternity by doing endless job applications and interviews! I thought pushing the rock up a hill was bad. This is more like carrying a weight across a tightrope suspended over a pit of fire ---- which way is up? How will I make it across? How much longer must I be out here? Can I get a solid footing anywhere? Should I move or wait?
I've been reading The Poisonwood Bible; maybe I will pack some more before going back to reading. Or, prepare for a phone interview? Gah! Just give me a job already, somebody, so I can move on to the fun parts of moving and planning and having a life!
