Future Jitters

Confession. I go to my first "real" interview this Wednesday morning at 9 am (except I have to leave the house at at least 7), and I am terrified. I've had my share of phone interviews, but I think my last real actual wear-a-suit interview was for the Presidential scholarship at Bryan College in 2006. Isn't that pathetic?

The company: 10 Best. The positon: editor. My degree: English Literature, writing minor. It would seem a perfect fit. Dragon to slay: my all-too easily intimidated self. And my affinaty for disaster when driving to a place I've never been before. (Case in point, I was half an hour late to a wedding this summer. The GPS took me to a dirt road instead of a lovely old house. I was distraught.)

Yet, God is good. And, what's the worst that can happen? I get lost and never find the place, so I have to email the lady back and tell her that I'm a bumbling idiot who can't follow a GPS and therefore would make a horrible employee. I still have my part-time job here at home. Ta-da! I win, right? And God is good, no matter what. He will be good if I get lost, if I get rejected for the job, if I totally botch the interview, or if I am offered a great job. He will be glorified, because He is God, and He is wise. I am not.


  1. Puedes llamarme! (Antes de 4, porque necesito trabajar, pero quiero hablar contigo!!)

    You, my dear, are going to OWN this interview! Don't believe your doubts and insecurities. Believe we who love you and who are confident in your glowing and unique talents! Believe in the God who lovingly created you just the way you are! You totally win! Your identity is in Him, and, yeah, it'd be awesome to get this job, but don't even sweat it! If it doesn't work out, you're still the awesome, lovable, caring, wise, and godly girl He loves! I love you, too.

    You RAWK! (misspelling intended and needed for emphasis)

  2. You can do it, Millie!!!
    I happen to know that you are a fantastic writer! Plus, you're cute and super charming. That always helps in interviews!
    (My last one was for the Presidential Scholarship too... but I was awful!)
    I have full faith in you, and I'll say a prayer for your nerves!
