Job interview and all that.

Hey y'all!

Since LJ is still not letting me post any entries (or basically anything for which you don't have to click links, but rather press a button), I remembered I had this thing here.
So I had my job interview at the bookstore yesterday. It went pretty well...especially considering that I couldn't really fall asleep the night before so I had a lie-in until 1 pm xD
Wasn't that bad though because the store is basically around the corner and the appointment was at 3 so I still had enough time left. I got ready quickly and grabbed a Latte before (I usually don't drink coffee, but the milk makes it bearable and I still felt a bit fuzzy from lack of/weird sleep schedule).
I got there at 2:50 and asked for Ms R., the person I had been referred to on the phone. Of course that had the guy I asked furrowing his brows and be like "but Ms R isn't here today" to which I emphasized (friendly so, of course!)that I had been told to talk to her. So he made a phone call and then told me to wait a bit and I would be picked up. Okay then, I was early after all. So I made a bit of conversation with the guy and browsed through the books on display until a lady came and took the lift upstairs with me. There I was greeted by a Ms. S., my interviewer. She asked me the usual questions, why I want to do this, why I left my last job etc....it went pretty well except for her noticing my bad grades in Math ("you do know you're going to have accounting classes in voc. school?" NO. :P). She also asked if I knew who was on the top of the bestsellers list. I had looked at that but just had remembered the ones I knew because I thought they'd asked me to name some books on it...but the ones I knew weren't the top ones so I was like "uhhh sorry I am blacking out right now...but I do know [name of book] is on it!" haha.

Besides that, I think it went quite well. She said they had a lot of other applicants and were interviewing people to start on October 1 (!) right now so they'd report back until end of August. I hope to know if I'll start college in September by then. I guess so because...otherwise it would be quite impractical xD

Anyways,I am sorry about the missing birthday wishes and I know I have to add another person. Please don't defriend me over on LJ okay? I'll also go on holiday to France on Thursday so if it isn't fixed by then, I will catch up with everything on August 1!

Things I can do on LJ right now, FYI:
- log in
- go to my front page
- go to my messages
- read my flist

Things I cannot do:
- mark messages as read
- delete messages

FFFFFFFFFFFFUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU, right?
Anyway, that leaves me time to clean the flat, I guess. xD
