So last night, I neither watched Netflix nor did I end up reading the textbook. Instead, I spent my time “playing” around with content for my blog. Will be adding that later today. I know it’s still procrastination, and that my blog isn’t really helping me financially right now, and it seems that prospective interviewers aren’t even checking my blog really. And yet, I’m still adding in content. It’s like it’s become my de facto calming thing?
Woke up a few minutes late (set alarm at 6, got up almost 6:20). Started my day off with a loop of ExecutiveU. Even if I don’t have any interviews today, I would still like to have that push to work on stuff I’ve been putting off (namely my office project, and reading the damned book).
While preparing my kids for their classes, I suddenly recalled the one time back in college, wherein I had a one-on-one session with my professor. I was a few points away from passing that subject. So instead of getting a written exam or other extra credits, me and my classmates who were in the similar situation were told to take an oral exam instead. I was given 1 problem and told to solve it on the board. My mind went blank and I totally forgot how to solve it. After I left, I was able to process it and wrote down the solution. I immediately emailed my professor with the solution, but for some reason, I he never received the attached solution (email systems weren’t that effective back then). But I don’t really know what happened, but when it came to get our grades, I saw that my grade for that class was a passing grade (albeit barely).
I really don’t know why I remembered that. Maybe because it was my subconscious telling me something? Maybe I should email yesterday’s interviewer? I don’t know. It’s really not like I’m desperate or something. I mean, I want to join that company, but if I end up getting a boss who’s a jerk? Not sure really.
