I love Jones New York

My first round of interviews are over, I think. I haven't received a call from any other schools, but that is still a possibility. The timeline is getting short, however--schools have to be finished with interviews by noon on Tuesday. When I interviewed this afternoon, those folks had been there all day, interviewing, and still had some to do after I left. They said they would be calling folks "by Monday," which means they will probably start calling tonight, if they've made decisions.

I already got one call from a school, just to tell me that they hadn't yet made decisions, and they didn't want me to go the whole weekend without a phone call. I thought that was very professional of them, and told them I appreciated the call. I bet they call folks on Monday, as well.

Now, the waiting.

Before my interview today, I vascillated between being nervous and not caring about the outcome. I do care, but I was trying to get myself not to care so much that I got nervous. I don't know if it worked or not.

I've given up on second-guessing why people hire who they hire. My experience last year was depressing.

I'm just sittin' here, surfing the internet, and waiting...

p.s. I love Jones New York. Throw on anything made by them, and you'll look stunning. I promise.

    I know what you mean...those damned butterflies in your stomach doing the conga...aaggghhh.

    But you're in my good thoughts file...hang in there.

    PS: I totally agree about Jones New York. Liz Claiborne's "Elizabeth" (?) line is pretty darn good too.
