Wed nes day

Here is my Saturday

Went up to Mt. Tamalpais to do some top-roping. It was a beautiful, almost hot, day. We got a late start but still had a good day, and saw a gorgeous sunset, marred only by the trail of some jet in the way far distance.


Sunday was the all day concert. It was really good, but not as great as last year. Warm and sunny and hot even - a big change from last year.

Tuesday I had my interview. I went in feeling confident that I was the right person for them. And then they asked me a few questions which I didn't feel I gave great answers to, and by the end I thought the energy was low and I just didn't make it to the second round. So, I couldn't concentrate for the next several hours. I tried retail therapy which helped a little, though ultimately did not buy anything, which is good. Then 4 hours later I get an email saying I've made it to the second round. So much for my sense...

Last night I did 1.5 hours of my radio show. The DJ who is training me left me alone in the studio. What a mess! Dead air, didn't fill out the logs well, played records at the wrong speed unintentionally, didn't clear out the studio for the next DJ, etc. But people said I sounded good. Though, likely all of them were high...so I should take it with a grain of salt. My next interview is in 2 weeks or so. I'm excited-ish for many reasons that I don't really want to get into right now. But it is definitely a good thing to have had a successful interview.

Now I must go focus.

Congrats on the 2nd interview! Very exciting I'm sure. I absolutely love mountainscape panoramic pictures. Very very beautiful. If I had enough wall space, I'd print a huge one like that as art.

Yay! About getting the call back for the second interview. I often think that I did not do well. Those questions can throw you for a loop.

Oops! For the dead air, etc. But starting out I''m sure they expect that. You probably did sound great... high or not. =;)

WOW what a view!

Wow--what an awesome view!

And congratulations on the second interview. BE confident of the skills you possess. Speak to what you know and know well.

And we'll cross fingers, toes and ankles! :-)

Congratulations on getting a second interview! And then, is the one coming up in a couple of weeks something different? Or the second round?
I hope your enjoying the DJing. Seems fun, but I imagine there is quite a bit to get used to :)
Now, focus!!!
