The day of the interview I transformed myself into a grown-up.
It's hard to say whether it was my expertise, my frazzled appearance or my cringe-worthy speech about carpentry, but somehow I landed the job.

It all started when people started mentioning that college would end. Prior to that I'd been happily existing in a poetry bubble.
It wasn't long before I'd abandoned all college work in search of the perfect job.
I readied myself for my inbox to be bombarded with responses.
Sitting at my laptop waiting for employment was an exercise which almost broke me...
It would have broken me, given that it's best not to know that your application to flip burgers hasn't even been entertained, only that someone eventually called me.
It was a call back from a construction company. Given that I was considered undesirable at key employment centres such as the local petrol station, I immediately agreed to an interview. I spent the next two days doing a crash-course on passive housing. I was going to triumph or so I thought.
