Personal news: I have a job interview tomorrow :)
Like a good teacher, I've been studying up by Googling (should "Googling" be capitalized?) potential interview questions for Ohio teaching candidates. Then for some nerves-calming, I Googled (a Google search told me that yes, anything "Googl..." used as a verb should be capitalized, FYI) "funny interview answers" and was led to an awesome CNN article...43 Weird Things Said in Job Interviews.
These are few that made me giggle aloud:
Q: What are your hobbies and interests?
A: Well, as you can see, I'm a young, virile man and I'm single -- if you ladies know what I'm saying.
Q: What are your assets? (as in strengths)
A: Well, I do own a bike.
Q: What are your weaknesses?
A: I get angry easily and I went to jail for domestic violence. But I won't get mad at you.
(this next one is my favorite)
Q: Is there anything else I should know about you?
A: You should probably know I mud wrestle on the weekends.
Q: Do you have any questions?
A: If you were a fruit, what fruit would you be?
Besides conducting valuable research, I've also been doing some decision-making on what I want to wear for the interview. I actually have something picked out that I had intentions of sharing in this post. I even took pics of the outfit already. I thought this was a particularly good idea because I know that my posts have become very this-is-what-I-found heavy (and I've been given some reader feedback that you'd like to see more of other things- like outfits and such).
Soooo...here's the thing. My bestest bud Laurel came down this weekend and went thrifting with me (@Goodwill in Miamisburg). I found some things that I'm really excited to share! That's why this is another this-is-what-I-found-post.
LOOK HOW FUZZY!
This stole has got to be one of my favorite finds of the century. Of the freaking century.
It's in perfect condition and it's so, so soft. Laurel thinks that it's real fur (sorry, PETA) and I think she's right given the fact that it smells like an attic.
After all, it's a well-known fact that only awesome, vintage-y quality things smell like attic.
Madeline Leather Slingbacks: $3.99
These remind me of these Frye slingbacks that retail for $168:
Nine West Leather Slingbacks: $3.99
Vintage Nine West Red Pumps: $3.99
(Like the sweatpants & pumps look? Sweatpants are quality interview outfit items. Google says so.)
Posting pics of what I'm donating is something I've forgotten to do lately. I need to start doing it again because it holds me accountable.
How do you balance blogging about what you WANT to blog about and blogging about what your readers want to read?
I'd be a happy duck just posting about what I find.
Would you readers be ok with that, though?
(Speaking of happy ducks, please take a look at this orange duckling that hatched late. I love him.)
