It's a mix of excitement and anticipation with a little bit of nervousness.

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.

These Superfood Beauty Products Show Kale And Matcha Work For SO Much More Than We Thought

Just another summer's day with a cold glass of kombucha on my face.

I've been vegan for about six years now, so a love for fresh vegetables and superfoods has now become a core part of my being. Don't get me wrong. I love my indulgent, creamy pastas and truffle fries more than anyone. But I keep most of my focus on eating clean and healthy so I can indulge guilt-free.

But I'd say about a large part of my diet has always, unknowingly, included superfoods. Being Indian, lentils, beetroot, garlic, ginger, and whole grains have been core essentials on the family dinner table since I could digest solid foods.

Kourtney is leaving the show because it was taking up too much of her life and it was a "toxic environment" for her.

We Asked You How You Felt About Resuming 'Normal' Activities, And Some Of Your Answers Shocked Us

The New York Times asked 511 epidemiologists when they'd feel comfortable doing "normal" activities again, considering COVID-19. We asked our peers the same thing, for science.

Last month, the New York Times surveyed about 500 epidemiologists asking about their comfort level with certain activities once deemed normal — socializing with friends, going to the doctor, bringing in the mail. That's all well and good for the experts, but they are a very niche group, not the majority of the population. What do "normal" people feel safe doing? In certain states, we've seen how comfortable everyone is with everything (looking at you, Florida), but we wanted to know where Odyssey's readers fell on the comfort scale. Are they sticking with the epidemiologists who won't be attending a wedding for another year, or are they storming the sunny beaches as soon as possible?

Disney Plus

Millions of musical-lovers around the world rejoiced when "Hamilton," the hip-hop-mixtape-turned-musical harder to get in to than Studio 54, came to Disney Plus.

For those who had the luxury of being able to watch it in person and rewatch it with us mere mortals on our screens, the experience was almost as gripping as sitting feet from Lin-Manuel Miranda himself. From the stunning sets, graceful choreography, witty dialogue, and hauntingly beautiful singing, the experience was one even my musical-averse family felt moved by.

Keto Is All Fun And Games Until You're Undernourished And Almost Pass Out

Keto is just another extension of diet culture that boasts rapid weight loss, but at a steep price.

There has been a Keto diet craze going around in the past couple of years, with many of its followers claiming significant weight loss. With any new, trendy diet claiming miraculous weight-loss, one starts to wonder what exactly is happening behind the curtain. The keto, or ketogenic, diet is a very low-carb, high-fat diet that claims to help the body shift its fuel source from carbs to fat. In the medical community it has been prescribed to patients with uncontrolled epilepsy to reduce the frequency of seizures, but other than that there is little conclusive evidence to other potential benefits.
