So I had an interview for an IT position up at the prison this morning. It's amazing how ones mind can suddenly forget everything one knows when put on the spot. I don't feel I did well at all.

I'm down on myself right now because of it.

Hoping I was at least marginally better than the other four people they interviewed today. I have to get out of this place.

Perhaps you blanked because somewhere inside yourself you didn't really want to get the gig...at a prison.

There are all sorts of reasons gigs don't end up being the right fit. Sometimes the interview going awry is a damn good thing in the end.

Also some times we are our own worst critic and think we did much worse than we actually did. I thought I bombed that test I passed.

Anyway have some flowers!

I've often thought that judging IT professionals on the qty of stuff they can pull off the top of their heads was kinda stupid. It would be better to judge them on how fast they can find an answer to any given problem. Give me Google, I'm an unstoppable powerhouse. Ask me to write half the stuff I do from memory? Might as well go home.

Hope it works out for the best for you.
