good stuff.

Re: attitude & job interviews: it never worked for me just to tell 
myself to have a good attitude. I'd still be bummed out. What worked 
for me was:

1. reading books on interviews and practicing responses to common 
questions OUT LOUD.  (otherwise I tend to ramble if you haven't 

2. creative visualization: visualize yourself answering the interview 
questions perfectly.  visualize the interview going well.  don't give 
into fear.  visualize a positive experience & prepare for a positive 
experience.  psyche yourself up.  the interview, if you can get it, 
is KEY.
