So my interview was today (which seemed like it went really well) and I'm pretty excited about that. I really hope I get this job, not only for the sake of having a job, but also because it seemed like a great environment and great people. Everyone I met was super nice, and it seemed like a very tight-knit, awesome group.
Even if I don't end up getting the job, I still feel really great because there was one massive difference between this interview and the others I've been to more recently - I wasn't worried about my face. Every interview I can remember having - ever - I've always felt more worried about if the interviewer was looking at my face, and this time I just didn't care. My face is so much clearer that it really doesn't look so bad at arm's length (or at least across a table.) No major red marks, nothing crazy hanging off my lip - nothing! I mean, there are a few marks, but they're much closer to the edges of my face now, and under my chin, so they aren't really as noticeable anyway.
It felt so good to be able to focus and just get this thing done. I feel so good right now.
I sort of cheated and pushed back doing the regimen until after I got home from the interview, because I was worried that my face would start flaking with the BP. So instead, I just washed with water and put on a little moisturizer for the really dry spots. Then I did it as normal when I got back (cleanser, BP, moisturize) and I think that worked out decently well. Obviously it's not something I want to do all the time, but once in a while it's probably okay.
Now to wait and cross my fingers...
