A bundle of nerves

Tonight, I am a huge bundle of nerves. Even that is an understatement. 

Tomorrow at noon is the biggest interview of my life. Before a panel of 5 people. I've never interviewed with that many people before so that intimidates me a bit. Interestingly, I received a call today from my student teacher who told me that they already called her for a reference yesterday even though my interview is tomorrow. I'm going to take that as a good sign! Of course she said amazingly wonderful things about me to them and she told me that the person who called for the reference said she just solidified everything they were already thinking about me. {Envision me jumping up and down and squealing like I'm 12 years old. Its possible I might have actually done just that when she told me.}

I'd love to read into this. I'd love to think that means this is going to happen. Alas, I don't want to get my hopes up too much. I want to be realistic and acknowledge that I am not the only person in line for this position. However, I do want to take a moment and pat myself on that back that I even made it this far for this particular position. (Believe me, when I finally reveal what the position is, you'll understand that last sentence.) No matter what happens, I will be proud of myself that I made it as far as I have.
 I know I am going to be a bundle of nervous energy in the morning. I'm hoping I can put it to good use and get some things accomplished before the interview happens. I tend to be one of those people that will clean or complete some huge project when I'm nervous about something. My house could very well be sparklingly clean by noon tomorrow. :)
