Comfortable With Conformity

July 2nd

I have an interview Thursday. It's for a public relations writer at the Greater Miami Jewish Ferderation. In other words, the perfect job. I was astounded they called for an interview at all, and I have an interview outfit this time-- a black jacket and pants suit from Ann Taylor. I am going to look very professional, now if I can only act professional.

The other night, after my parent's anniversary party (which was really fun, by the way), my sister's boyfriend, Jan, my sister's friend Ann, and Jan's boyfriend and I hung out in my room, discussing interview strategies. I am always scared and unprepared for those interview questions, like, "What are your strengths? What are your weaknesses? Why are you the best person for the job? Why should I hire you? What did you do at your last job? What did you like least about your last job?" Those questions really make me awkward.

So, I went to the bookstore today to do my research on THE VAGINA. Ew. I have to desensitize myself enough to it by reading about it, by understanding its functions and all the parts so I can become comfortable with my own. Anita, my pyschotherapist, recommeded I do this. I sat in a quiet corner, with a book called Just For Women, learning about the vulva, the inner and outer labia, etc. My palms began to sweat a little bit. I had to wipe them on my pants. You see? I can't even read about the subject without getting a little queasy, let alone stick a finger or tampon up there. I have a long way to go.
