Quotes from the Borderline

“Borderline individuals are the psychological equivalent of third-degree-burn patients. They simply have, so to speak, no emotional skin. Even the slightest touch or movement can create immense suffering.”

  1. @Res… Niiiiice gotta love encyclopedia dramatica. The interview went fairly well. There was only one question asked that I wasn't prepared for due to nerves getting the better of me. It was a much larger process than I'd ever gone through before. I had an interview with HR. Another interview with the head of the program. And a full panel interview with 5 senior engineers. The panel interview was a little nerve racking because I basically got to sit in a hot seat across from 5 guys twice my age. It's a good thing I'm rather used to working with all men. So we shall see we shall see.

  2. From ED:People with BPD often experience something medically termed Being an Emo Douchebag (BED). They like to go on frantic emotional rants, often on their LiveJournal and they can't relate to other people, making them sad-sack loners. This often leads to them becoming self-injurers and possibly even An heroes because nobody understands them, not even themselves. This symptom of self injury has led every emo in the world to e-diagnose themselves with BPD.

  3. ok i hope they don't leave you hanging too long about the interview result. i was pretty lucky for my current job… didn't have an interview at all – they just offered it to me πŸ™‚

  4. @Res… yeah the job I have now I had a short phone interview and they told me to show up. I have another interview for another firm on Tuesday. At least I know my skills are in high demand.
