The interview came sooner than I expected because the people doing it are in a time zone one hour ahead of mine. They were apologetic, but I said it was fine if we started at 9. They liked that I was flexible. :)

I'm not sure how I did. I don't think I did awesome, but not terrible, either. They asked some unexpected questions, and they did ask if I had any experience with backcountry camping. FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFUUUUUUUUU. I had to say no, and that the closest I ever did was some car camping for the Passport in Time project. I expressed interest and desire to do more primitive camping, but I have a feeling they're looking for someone with experience.

Personally, I don't think I got the job. They said they'd have a decision made in about another week. This forest sounds really cool, though. I would try again for a GS-7 if one opened up there again, or even a GS-5, crazy as that sounds.

In other news, I got my letter in the mail from OWCP. It said I'm not providing sufficient evidence that my injury is work-related, and I really can't blame them for coming to that conclusion, because I legit can't remember how in the heck I hurt my hand. I only know I first noticed it during work hours. There is nothing else I do during my off-hours that could bother my hand like this. Someone told me I should say I fell on it because it only seemed logical that I fell on it, because I fell quite often last season, and I could've put my hand out to stop my fall. But then my claim examiner would ask why I never mentioned it on the report I filed. And really, I'm hopelessly honest. When you were raised to believe telling even the smallest lie was a sin, and punished any time you told a lie, it becomes very difficult for me to tell one and not make it obvious or confess later.

So now I have to answer a bunch of questions to send back to the claims office, and also have my doctor write a report. I recall her mentioning a while back that I should be getting a letter that would prompt her to...do something, I can't remember, but it kind of went in one ear and out the other and I forgot all about it. I think this letter I just got is what she meant.

I'm just going to be up front with them when I send my answers in. If they decide to deny my claim, then so be it. I can't blame them. They're only doing their jobs, and I don't feel like they're trying to prevent me from getting care I'm entitled to. At least my injury is getting better--well, I did hurt it last week when I was slicing cheese and all. But it's about 95% better compared to when it first started.
