hitting my stride

i just had an interview. it was one of those serendipitous conversations where everything just falls into place. all parties realize that not only is this thing going to work really well, but there are several other areas of overlapping interest that could result in exciting work and opportunities no one anticipated ahead of time.

i’m not assuming i’ll get the job*, but i’ll be pretty surprised if i don’t, and i’ll know that it was for some other really good reason. they liked me. i liked them. i felt like i had interesting and appropriate answers to all their questions, and that i could talk about how my area of research fit in with their program and how it speaks to broader real-life issues that we all care about deeply. more details later if things work out.

*which is a small summer thing, not a real job, like my housemate just got. i can only imagine how she feels!
