a pain in the

face! Went this morning to the dentist and had not one but two teeth prepared for crowns. I felt like I was run over by a truck. I felt like I had given a guy a bj for five hours (not that I really know what that's like, so don't get all excited). I felt the pain when I forked over my credit card - we'll see if I can do the bathroom remodel I was planning.

And feeling like shit, all I could think of was how could I be an executive director? I can't lead people when I feel like crap. Well, no duh.

I just did a search on 'how to be an executive director' and even I didn't see a listing in eHow, I found some other things. And amazingly enough, I believe I could be a good executive director. Especially for something I'm passionate about.

But am I passionate enough about this that I'm applying for? I'm not sure. I'm skeptical, and trying to research so that I CAN be passionate for the interview. Else, I have no chance for the job.

In the meantime I have to learn how to use a web cam from my home computer, clean up the room that the computer is in or at least find something to hang behind me, etc. etc.

Not that I'm feeling overwhelmed at all. Oh, no. Not me.

But riding my bike to my car tonight, I thought that it's nice to be in a position where I even feel comfortable applying for this job. To be somewhat healed. It's nice. And if this job doesn't work out, as my mom says, it's for a reason. Speaking of my mom, I talked to her on Friday and she asked if I'm getting a new job because she had a dream I did. I have not told her anything... She just knows. But we'll see.

I hope your face and teeth feel better. I hate the dentist. I got a crown put in once and it made me very, very unhappy...Especially the bill.

That's cool that your mom is so in-tune to your world. Good luck on your job!

Please don't over-analyze positions you want to apply for. You have more strength than you realize. I like my manager because he can experience pain - it makes him more approachable.

Mom's are like that.

Good luck with the interview! :-)

Pamela said...

Churlita, they do feel better, thanks.

Tara, I have a hard time not overanalyzing. It's why I'm so uncoordinated at the gym.

Mel, yes, and thanks! You know, I caught myself imitating your style of writing.

Yikes! Two at a time. That does not sound fun at all. Hope you feel better fast.

Sounds like you are doing all the right things to be well prepared for that interview. That's most of the battle. Good luck!

Be confident. Be excited. Be ready for a new job...so says mom.

Mom-vision. Gotta trust it.

Now, I will have to search on 'how to be an executive director' so that I can see what that entails...

Ouch, crowns sounds awful. Tooth pain is the worst. Hope you feel better quickly. I'm not sure about the dental profession. Seems slightly sadistic... but alas necessary.
