I've been avoiding this decision for a few weeks. Some part of me wanted to just act like everything was fine and hide until the voices in my head (and those of trusted friends) went away. But alas, they never do.
So I'm finally admitting that I need to make a pivot.
The first interview was a little rough. I had a hard time listening, asking questions, and preparing what I wanted to ask next all at once. But, I had a good conversation with a friend about it, and I got the idea that I should divide the main interview into distinct sections.
