I had a phone interview this morning for a part-time lab tech position at a chemical engineering firm. It went surprisingly well. It helped that the person I spoke to told me I had a very strong resume. Who knew that my student job at the library would come in handy (book repair technician = steady hands)? Hopefully, I'll get called back for an in-person interview, which will have the advantage of not forcing me to go without visual social cues. On the other hand, I won't have my notes to go off of. I just need to remember that this is a job that I can do, and remain hopeful.

Earlier today, livejournal made several changes to their website, including the elimination of subject headings and previews of posts (something to do with an egotistical Russian programmer who seems to enjoy deliberately ignoring feedback and going along with plans that alienate people). Also today, Dreamwidth's maintenance feed noted that there was a bottleneck in journal importing due to high traffic. Coincidence?
