I have an assessment tomorrow for an entry level position in a PR firm and I’m so nervous. It’s not quite my dream job but it’s the only place where I’ve gotten this far D: So so so nervous.

All interview questions boil down to: 1) Can you do the job? (and are willing to learn) 2) Do you want the job? and 3) Do I want to work with you?

1) and 2) you can practise for, sometimes 3) is just luck. So the very best of luck!:) Even if it’s not your dream job PR can be interesting, and very useful for other jobs later on, so go for it :)

Late to the party– I made some shortbread cookies with chocolate chips this week, but I’m not suuuuper happy with how they turned out. They were a little too thick (so they needed extra bake time)? Or I’m just still-not-used-to the gas oven? The chocolate chips were also a new twist on my recipe, but I don’t think that screwed it up?

So they’re a little browner on bottom than I like, bleh.

Anybody else here a fan of Ovaltine?

I would really love some cookies right this minute, actually! I’ve been sick the last couple of days, took yesterday off work to try to heal but only ended up getting worse. I think I’ll have to call in today too- it’s 4AM and I was woken up by sore throat pain and dehydration.

Bah. Cookies, please.
