Last week I had a job interview and I don't think I will ever get used to the feeling you get before an interview. It's a mix of excitement and anticipation with a little bit of nervousness. And I realized that there are some pretty funny things you think of before an interview.

1. "Ok so I gotta get there like an hour early just in case theres traffic or any sort of catastrophic disaster."

Giphy

I got there an hour early but on the bright side it gave me time to eat and relax.

2. "Am I dressed appropriately?"

Giphy

So, coming from someone who had nearly zero interview experience or attire (yes I live in jeans and t-shirts). I had to get out of my comfort zone and make sure I looked professional.

3. "Let me find a bathroom to get myself together."

Giphy

I don't know about you but whenever I have an important meeting or situation, I usually go to the bathroom to get myself together and make sure I look good. It's my little breather moment.

4. "Wow, I really do look professional" 

Giphy

Let me tell you this, I nailed that business casual look and I felt like a #girlboss in my blazer and jumpsuit.

5. "Should I get coffee before to be more energetic?"

Giphy

Listen, I'm an avid coffee drinker and a kind of caffeine addict so I really had to make the right choice here. And FYI, yes I did go get some coffee before.

6." Should I  shake their hand?"

Giphy

Since you already know I'm a newbie at this, I did genuinely ask myself this. And pro-tip, always shake people's hands.

7. "Just walk around and pretend to know where you’re going. Come on you just have to find this room."

Giphy

When you're entering a new building and you have a designated destination but have NO IDEA WHERE TO GO, yes this was me. And of course, naturally, I did everything in my power to find the room on my own.

8. "Nope, this isn't the room either. Time to ask someone."

Giphy

Yeah I couldn't find the room though so it was time to ask for some help.

9. "Should I say my greatest weakness is perfectionism or is that too generic?"

Giphy

You best know I looked up the most common interview questions and I was trying my hardest to generate the best answer. And this was a genuine thought.

10. "Ok, well this is it. I'm going to try my best but God it’s all in your hands. "

Giphy

Right before walking into that room, I had prepared as best as I could and was going to do my best but ultimately it's in God's hands. If He's opening the doors then I'll go but if not, He knows what's best for me and I trust Him.

This coffee brand is USDA organic. Newman's Own Keurig coffee flavors are all organic. They have French Roast, Decaf, and a Special Blend. I'm in a committed relationship with the French Roast flavor. The smell alone from dispensing 1 cup of coffee sets a whole cafe jazz vibe.

I'm already relaxed when I smell the coffee all ready for dressing. The way I make my coffee is simple and sweet, literally. I add a spoon of organic brown sugar and a splash of organic almond vanilla milk. This cup of coffee has changed my life forever. I have never been so productive in my life and I truly believe it's because the coffee is organic.

Don't Make This Pandemic Political, Just Wear Your Damn Mask

A virus doesn't discriminate when infecting you.

With the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic still surging in the United States, where we are averaging 50,000 cases daily, wearing a face mask has become even more important. Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation's top infectious disease expert, has stressed the importance of wearing a mask and is pleading Americans to take notice of the "disturbing" rise in cases. It would be common sense to listen to him, considering we are dealing with a virus that has a mortality rate higher than what we have seen with other viruses.
