On this beach trip we learned that it’s best to change into swimsuits and do sunscreen at home. The two of them ran straight for the water as soon as we stepped on the sand.

Hackbright Update #1

A few days after I hit submit on my written application I found an email from Hackbright in my inbox inviting me to do an interview with them! This is the first of two video interviews in the application process. It’s happening tomorrow and I feel good about it because based on everything I’ve read it’s an interview that attempts to understand the individual and the personality, and whether they are a good fit for the program. They only thing I can do is be myself.

If they like what they hear/see in the first interview I’ll be invited to do a second video meeting. I’ve tried to find everything written about the interview process with this particular program, and my take-away is that the first interview is about determining if your personality is a good fit for the group as a whole (which makes sense, since it’s a group of 40 spending 40 hours/week together). The second interview is set up to challenge applicants and see how they process and work through problems, to help instructors determine if this is a person they want to devote three months of their life to teaching.

I have my outfit and interview spot picked out and I’m ready to get this second step over with! Thank you to all those who have reached out on Twitter or Facebook to wish me luck. Those good thoughts meant a lot to me, and they will sustain me through the rest of the process as well.

Fingers crossed I’ll be checkin in next week with a second update that contains positive news!

The mind overflows with ideas, yet somehow none are pertinent to the project looming large in the near future.

I’m writing this post in the second state, as I make a final push to finish my application for Read more →

One Quick Take

Eating sushi in the park after we finished our grocery shopping. Taken awhile ago, before he cut his own hair while watching TV in my bed. He tried to hide the evidence in the garbage, but didn’t think about the evidence seen just above his face. We’re starting to deal with more mischievous and naughty behavior, along with falsehoods, and it’s more difficult to deal with than I anticipated. I try to reflect back often on the Nurtureshock chapter on lying, asking myself “What would Po do?
