Or, y’know, that thing called “Passover.”
Or the whole thing with Noah’s Ark where he killed off everything in the world except Noah and his family, and two of every animal. Y’know, no big deal. Just millions of people.
90% of the Old Testament is about God killing people in temper tantrums
Are we not going to mention Jesus?
Oh my god.
lets just be clear, if you spend the time baking a cake/cookies/brownies, you can eat as many of them as you want and the calories don’t count. you made those calories. you’re their god.
disclaimer: this does not apply to children you have made
Wasn’t thrilled with myself after I finished my interview. Thought I could have done a lot better than I did and was nearly in tears with how frustrated with myself I was. And then I remembered that I have to get my wisdom teeth out in the morning. Great, fun times.
Imagine my surprise when, driving home, I have a call from a 402 number - UNL - 4 hours after I finished a 22 minute interview. Of course, being me, I missed the damn call. I have missed EVERY FREAKING CALL FROM THEM! After some repeated, frantic calling, I gave up and waited for the voicemail to come through.
They wanted to set up a second, in person interview!
The head advisor said that they wanted to meet with me as soon as possible. He said the earliest would be on the 4th, but he knew I would be coming in on the 7th. So we set the interview for the 7th at 1:00.
Holy shit, I’m still in shock. I thought I was completely out of the running. So now I’m moving 2 days earlier than I thought I was! I’ll only be able to spend 4 days at home with my family before hitting the road again, but my parents are going to come up the following day.
On Friday I have to get some stuff rescheduled (doing so under the influence of narcotics probably isn’t a great idea) but holy wow - two weeks from tomorrow I could have a new job!!!!
Well, the interview happened. I’m not a fan of group interviews via Adobe Connect. I think not being able to gauge reactions didn’t do me any favors.
I hope I did well. I kind of burst out with how much I like advising and assured them that I can handle a full time PhD and working 40 hours a week (my 4.0 GPA attests to that).
Here’s hoping I get a second interview. It may make me move a few days ahead of the planned time but oh well. I’d just have to pick up my keys and reschedule my furniture delivery.
