I'M LIKE 96% SURE I GOT THE JOB AT BEST BUY??????? THE INTERVIEW WENT LITERALLY PERFECTLY??? AND I'M H Y P E??

right so i walk into the best buy w/ my portfolio n shit and say i have an appointment at 4 with the assistant manager named tim. i was 10mins early so i just scoped out the store, the employees looked not dead inside so that was a plus. at 4 on the dot tim walks out and i was expecting Assistant Manager Tim to be some middle aged grouchy guy (idk why) but he was actually an early 20's, tatted, cheerful as hell dude. shook my hand, we chatted (like, good chatting, not basic small talk) as he led me to the employee area to conduct the interview.
so he just starts out by saying like, the interview is more laid back and stuff, i'm his last interview of the day (which is good i think, because it means i leave a good impression). he looks over the info on my application and sees i preferred the Computer Department and/or Video Games Department and he asked me why i wanted to work in those departments and i was like "oh im a huge gamer" etc and hes like what do you play and i say league of legends, i love the whole esports scene, wow, overwatch, and as im saying this i can tell hes on board and he says he loves overwatch so we literally talk about overwatch for a soild minute he asked me who i play, i say mainly orisa, i main tanks etc. and hes like yeah i love blinking around as tracer and im just thinking like... This is good
he asks me about previous work, and im like "oh... i haven't worked anywhere" and he says thats ok, everyone has their first job somewhere etc. so he skips over half the interview questions b/c theyre about previous work experience lol
and i swear to god guys, every question i straight up s l a m d u n k. they were like, what would/did you do in this situation type scenarios. one was when you helped someone and i was like... today!! i helped my friend with her horticulture powerpoint. in one answer i also snuck in how i volunteered somewhere... i think all my answers were really good tbh, judging by tim's reaction and stuff. i wasn't anxious at all really, and i kinda surprised myself by how fast and confidently i was able to answer the questions, i didn't seem too akward (like i normally am when talking to strangers).
keep in mind, between every question is like, friendly banter. tim's a really funny guy, chatty and stuff, so like in the short space between questions as hes taking notes he recommended a movie, he ranted about how he hates working in the phone department, we talked about why excel is scary, just stuff like that.
and the one question that made me (and tim too i assume) think holy shit, This Is The Job For Apsa is, he asked me "say theres someone in your department who has no idea what they want, and they're totally unfamiliar with the products. what do you do." and i say "well, first i ask them basic questions, just to get some baseline information on what they might be looking for." AND HERE'S THE KICKER, then i say "i think it's important to use simpler terms, not bombard them with all my nerd knowledge." ((actual quote)) and tim literally says "that is what i've been trying to teach the employees for a month now." and we talk about how thats really important and as hes taking notes he just nods and says ((ACTUAL QUOTE)) "you nailed it."
after a few more questions, he talks about like, expectations of the job like working holidays, washing your uniform (at my disgusted/disappointed look tim laughs and says "you'd be surprised") and he says hes gotta go through the applications, and to expect another call for a 2nd interview with the manager and im like ,,,,hhhh,,,,,,, HHHH
so as hes walking me out hes like, throwing jabs at other coworkers passing by, messing w/ em, and im thinking, this seems like a really awesome work environment... he shakes my hand and says "keep killin' it in overwarch" and im like "ill try haha"
like, straight up as i was relaying all this info of all that transpired to my mom/sister/dad (over the phone) theyre all literally like you killed it in that interview and im like HHHHHHHH and they were like "yeah that 2nd interview is about hours and getting ur uniform and stuff so it's almost positive you got the job" ((is this true?? routians confirm pls to help))

SO BASICALLY i'm REALLY REALLY R E A L L Y likely to get the job i think!!!?!! and it seems like a REALLY COOL place to work actually. i'm just waiting on that call i guess, see what happens in that interview, and if i do in fact get the job

anyway yeah im happy

you guys are probably thinking that my previous post is a dig at league of legends and refers to physically, irl, getting killed by the enemy team (which is still, in fact, a valid way to win a game of league of legends) but i was also referring to what had just happened at all-stars... even when koreans are losing, they win.

i'm dreading the finals tomorrow because im 95% sure my lms boys are gonna get dumpstered :'( at least bjergsen vs. uzi will be hype

also ill drop off one of my very fav songs for u guys... i.g.y. (what a beautiful world) by donald fagen. a song about the international geophysical year (hence the song's title) in 1957-1958. at the time, the world's smartest scientists were making all these breakthroughs and cool research, so americans were optimistic about the future. what i find intriguing about this song is, i can't quite tell the message it's trying to send. it appeared on donald fagen's 1982 album the nightfly (his first solo album away from steely dan), which was inspired by his life growing up. he experienced i.g.y. himself... so was the song just his optimistic point of view at the time, or, more in the fashion of mr. fagen, was it tounge-in-cheek making fun of the americans who thought there were good times ahead?
either way, i can't help but see the interesting similarities to the current times in america.

(looks at cloud9)
(looks at 100theives)
(sweats)
like... wtf c9?? losing impact and contractz?? and gaining licorice (an lcs rookie, though i do like him) and SVENSKEREN?? hes always rubbed me the wrong way :/
now with 100T's AWESOME roster of ssumday, meteos, ryu, cody sun (not confirmed but HIGHLY likely), aphromoo, and coach pr0lly returning to NA... 100T is an amazing org, nadeshot is a great guy... and they have a sick clothing line...
like, i might just jump ship tbh... c9 is still cool, but 100T has some of my all-time fav personalities. 100T reminds me of my first love, gravity.
guys... i think... im a 100T fan
ALSO FLYQUEST JUST SIGNED FLY (i wish he stayed in korea tbh, he was one of my fav players to watch) WHICH MEANS IN-GAME HIS NAME WILL BE FLY FLY

life goals: join a band. become successful, maybe
first i must, play guitar. and sing?? and write songs>>??!?!?
yeah ive felt like singing lately. i used to sing a lot, Many Years Ago. also other people singing pisses me off so i would be a Hypocrite. idk. its fun i think, i dont remember.
i DO remember music lessons i took for like a month, my singing instructor said i could sing REALLY high. i get it from my mom i guess, she likes bragging about her college choir days and how she hit the highest note and no one else could. she cant sing anymore cause she smokes like a chimney FeelsBadMan
as for songwriting, ive never done it before. but i love writing and i love songs, so. it sounds fun, lyrics and stuff. i also like reading about different techniques you can use in songs. for example gentle giant, a great band, uses wacky techniques like polyphony and hocketing. and stuff like wacky time signatures, syncopation, dissonance... its all super interesting to me, these ways to spice up your music.
doesnt help that i cant read music a y y l m a o
