One thing at a time...

...because focus is a virtue.


It's scandalous, I tell you!

I'm playing with my lil Droid. Right now! In front of everyone!

And I'm using my Droid smartphone to post this!

...Yes, I was referring to a phone. What did you think I meant, sicko?! :P

Update 2.0!
paganitician
The interview went very well! I managed to sound very confident without sounding arrogant (shadowkindrd was in the same room listening to the conversation, and she agreed). If I had it to do over again, there are only two extremely minor things that I'd change, and the changes wouldn't have affected the outcome, anyways.

It turns out that my resume caught the manager's eye for a very particular reason, and it seems as though there is interest in creating a position for me!

Oh, and the SQL exam? It turns out I scored a bit higher than average on it, which was a pleasant surprise for the manager. I'm thrilled that he's actually taking into account the fact that I don't have experience using SQL in the workplace. Oh, and my above-average score? Everything I know about SQL I learned by spending a few hours a week for the past few months doing some reading and tinkering around. Also, when I asked the balls-to-the-wall question about whether he has any concerns about me as a candidate that I can address right here and now, the conversation led him into saying that although other candidates with more SQL experience could "hit the ground running," he views me as more of a "long term investment."

He gets it! He fucking gets it! Thank the gods!

They have one more phone interview to do before selecting people for on-site interviews. I'm also going to be given a problem to solve--namely writing a function in SQL to perform a given algorithm. I haven't received the problem, yet (and possibly won't get it until Monday), but I was told that I could take "a few days" to do it.

SQUEEEEEEEAGE!

Update!
paganitician
The SQL exam went....okay. Not as well as I had hoped, but I don't think I bombed it.

The phone interview will start an hour and a half from now. Then, it's off to Bjornhala to help sort the wreckage. I feel guilty about not getting out there last night, but I also had to prepare for the phone interview (for which I only got two days notice...).

Between now and then, I'm off to do a bit more meditation and preparation...

Just in case you've got an extra candle to burn....

....I've got a phone interview! On Friday! For a REALLY GOOD job (well, technically two REALLY GOOD similar jobs in the same department to which I applied).

SQUEEEEEE!!!!!

There's an online SQL exam that I have to take before the interview, but I'm not too worried about it. I'll study like hell tonight and blast through it tomorrow.

SQUEEEEEEEEEEAGE!!!

The third installment of Musical Memery
paganitician
Well, it didn't take long for me to fuck up the one-post-every-day meme, now did it?

Anyhoo, while there are several songs that (usually) make me feel a bit happier, I feel that it's easier to choose this time, since this category isn't an absolute (ie not "the song that makes you happier than any other song"). My first instinct was to go with TMBG's It's Not My Birthday, but to avoid making this meme a TMBG fest (because there will be a lot of TMBG later on), I'll instead go with a song by the best mathematically-oriented acapella group out there: The Klein Four group. Prettymuch every line of this song contains a math pun.



And I'm still working on applying a forgetful functor to the past...

Picking a least favorite song is also difficult... 

This first song--the runner-up--is a song that made me decide never to buy a Volkswagen again if I can help it (originally, I vowed never to own a Volkswagen under any circumstances, but since I may end up in a situation where I'll have to get a new car at one of those "Bad credit?  No credit?  We approve all financing!!" dealerships...well...beggars can't be choosers.  Much.)




But even Da Da Da can't beat the vapidness that is....Achey Breaky Heart.




In other news, I MOTHERFUCKING HATE LJ's "Rich" text editor.

For someone who posts as seldom as I do, I'm probably insane to try a meme that involves thirty posts in as many days.  However, I've been rediscovering music, as stupid as that sounds, so here goes....

Favorite song?  That's a tough one....  I could spend days trying to decide which song is my favorite.  Instead, I'll choose a favorite.




And as a bonus, here's the Literal Video version!

...you may have read some of these books before!

I've gotta admit, though, that the concept of a lich that compulsively hordes junk--or has another relatively mundane disorder (mundane as opposed to, say, being undead*)--would make for an interesting story.

In other news, I'm still alive...

* - Come to think of it, a lich trying to advocate for the status of being undead (undeadness?  undeadocity?) as being a documented disorder could make for an interesting story, too.  Or the idea of undead status as a disability...  "Do you have any documented disabilities that we should know about?"  "Yes, I am a certified lich, so the ADA mandates that all heroes must stay at least 1000 feet away from my phylactery at all times."
