    First interview today! My outfit is ready, my brain is calm and my portfolio is ready. I am slowly savoring a cup of coffee before I review some last minute questions.

    My hopes are also realistic, as I am a new graduate.....but I am just excited to have the interview and the practice. 10 other people from my graduating class had the same prescreening interview as me and I was the only one asked to move on.....that has to count for something, right?!

    Thanks!

    I should have known today was going along too stress-free. My daughter's preschool just called and she is throwing up. I just had to run and pick her up--now we are waiting for my husband. So much for savoring that coffee!!

    Good luck to you too!! Please let me know how it goes :)

    Thank you everyone for the positive vibes--this is such an awesome community!!

    I am pretty happy with myself. I know I talked too fast but I did realize it and tried to slow down. I was absolutely prepared though and was able to use my portfolio to underline my answers, which I always like to do.

    I will find out Friday if I move on to the next round, which is a demo lesson. But they told me today that the interviewees this week were the top 25 out of 250 apps so I feel great for making it this far :D
