Epic Fail

Oh Mylanta, I sound just like the high school kids right now, but that phrase is just perfect for how I feel about my job interview yesterday morning.  I didn't even write on the blog about it until this morning because I was so disgusted with myself all day. 

I bombed it, people.  All that preparation still did not help be sound even remotely competent.  I stuttered and sputtered over my words.  My hands shook so badly I could barely return a paper into it's page protector.  My mind shut down entirely and I couldn't even come up with titles of books I had read and enjoyed. 

I cried.

Yup, I actually cried during my interview for a teaching job.  How awful is that?  While giving a response about why I should be hired over someone else (yeah right....) I actually teared up like a blubbering fool. 

I'm so incredibly disappointed in myself and embarrassed.  I know I could have done so much better.  Even partaking in some retail therapy (don't worry, I used coupons.  More on that later when I've left my own pity party) didn't appease my pain. 

Thanks for all the well-wishes and prayers you sent my way prior to the interview.  It was so great to know so many people were pulling for me.
