I must stop writing about myself on this blog - it is meant to be art related (and after today will be) but for now I need to 'spill'. Although I have a job lined up to start on 17th Nov (if I get through the CRB check) I was invited to attend a different interview this morning, for a better paid job - different establishment.
It took just over an hour to get to the venue, then a 30 min security check at the gate before being escorted by a security guard to the interview building. An hour and a half later the interview was over and followed by the same escort back to the gate and a 15mins security check to get off the site! An hour's drive home.
I think the interview went very well and the job is certainly something I would be interested in doing.
The reason I am writing is to release this tension - like writing Morning Pages, because I am now sooooo exhausted - for the first time in all my years of employment this interview was the one which made me the most nervous. Goodness knows why - the interviewer was lovely, the site is amazing and I could do the job standing on my head but boy was I scared!! This was only a preliminary interview and if I get through there will be more!!How foolish.
Even now - an hour after getting home, my stomach is still churning, I feel nauseous (despite having a jacket potato for a light lunch) and my head really hurts.
All I want to do is sleep!! So that is what I am going to do - chill on the sofa with a good textile book and my spiral sketchbook until I drop off!!
