Well, it's finally happening. Summer is coming to a close. I start school on the 4th of September, and as of writing this, it is September 1st. I wonder what I'll do in my last moments of freedom. Maybe I'll actually draw some more. Anyways, I talk as if I hate the idea of going back to school but for some reason I'm actually excited. It's kind of strange. I remember last year pretty well. I remember the frustrating homework, the endless projects, the annoying teachers, the tests I never seem to be prepared for and all the other reasons I hated school. And yet, when school rolls around I'm a glass-is-half-full kind of person, only focusing on seeing my friends and lunch period. Main point being, after the first week is over I'll probably hate being back, so nothing really different from last year.
Also, I finally got a job! Hooray employment! And I think I need to actually thank school for that. You see, instead of a regular one-on-one interview, it was a group interview. Basically, I and 18 other people who wanted the job were brought into a room and 2 managers and 4 supervisors stood in front of us, asking questions. The goal was to stand out from the other applicants in the room as well as the other 2 groups of 20 they were going interview. But as stressful as it was, it felt A LOT like a classroom. We had to answer individual questions, briefly introduce the person sitting next to us and near the end, we were split into groups of 4 and had to write done the answers of a question on a piece of paper and then present those answers to the rest of the room.
So, for those who think school is useless, it turns out they're preparing you for group interviews! Who knew!
