I'm not a religious person, but if I was, I would hope that heaven was a place of joy, filled with loved ones, where every day there was a new piece by John McPhee. If you haven't read him, you should; I'd start with one of his books; my favorite of them all is The Curve of Binding Energy but there are others that may, objectively, be better.

Students have always asked what I do to prepare for interviews. Candidly, not much. At minimum, though, I think you should do enough preparation to be polite. I have no technique for asking questions. I just stay there and fade away as I watch people do what they do.
