Done Printing, Dishes, Then Bed.

I'm pretty exhausted right now, but I did my four thank-you letters from my screening interview. I forgot there are screening interviews--there are multiple positions open--so later today I will fax and mail my letters and let the holding my breath for a callback commence.

In the meantime, I do think it went fairly well. I answered as thoughtfully as possible, but I pretty much tried to be myself and flex my library muscles for them. I didn't expect that they'd be looking for copies of transcripts/recommendations/whatever extras at that point, and I don't think I've provided that much for a screening anyplace else. In fact, I'm pretty sure I was asked for some of those things from HR as they processed me to start my previous position at the high school a year and a half ago. So I'm hoping that's not a mark against me.

I found it a little odd the person after me was laughing loudly (nervously?) and didn't seem dressed for an interview from what I could tell at my distance on the other side of the (nicely appointed) high school library as I did my writing sample. I heard her telling her life's story ("This is sort of a third career for me") as I walked out. I'm kind of hoping she's angling for the lower grade level position--that said, if it came down to the lower grade level position or no position offered, then I'd be right there. I like second graders and they like me. (And for some reason they are crazy about The Beatles. Ask around and you'll see.)

I will say I'm wondering if it was a good omen that there was a question at trivia night on Tuesday (where our team won the whole thing, yay) that revolved around "big cats," and one in particular, and it then it so happened that I went to this school to interview. . . and that same big cat is their team name. Hmmmmm.

This universe is just too mysterious. I'm gonna go do a sure thing like load the dishwasher and then hit the hay.

Oh, the cat connection sounds like a good omen to me! I will continue to cross fingers for you. Glad it went pretty well.

PS - Sorry if this is a duplicate. Not sure what happened with the first attempt.

Thanks, Rob. (After a post is about 5-6 days old the comments go into moderation. Sorry about that.)
