"Get your mind right!...first off you'll never get anywhere if you give up..second, even if its your friend you need to grab your CAHONES and stick it to her in that interview. and third you'll be ok."
"Thanks again for all the kind comments.
My presentation went pretty good, but I unfortunately I never got the job.

Thanks again for the support…"
"a) She doesn't automatically get the job. If it was that cut and dry, they would have cancelled the other interviews and given her the job. Managers don't want to waste time with useless activities. Since that's the case, despite her…"
"Thanks for the support amigos,
I'll post tomorrow on how it went and again when I get the results.
I'm kinda looking forward to it now, it'll just be a pain waiting for a response.
Thanks again though, its much…"
"I'm not in marketing, so my help may be inferior to that of those who are.

"Hey, I seen a really good TV show last week I think might be helpful and relevant to your situation.
It was on British TV(I'm Scottish), and I'm guessing your american, but if you search on youtube " Derren brown: fear and faith…"
"You think you know it all now.. and look back on your 15 year old self and think 'what an idiot i was back then'

"I prefer to read off paper. Part of the enjoyment for me are the sensory aspects of the book. Find me a tablet that feels like a book, smells like a book, lets me turn pages like a book, etc... and you might convert me full time. But we're not…"
"I read a tablet when it's cheaper to get the Kindle than a used book, but I prefer the physical book.
