Introductions and need advice/comment

Hello all,
I just joined a moment ago and figured I might jump right to it. I hope all is well with everyone. I have graduated from Brooklyn College with a BA in English this past December since then I have been looking for a job full time. I have always fancied working for a publishing company but I would take any job that would pay the bills at this point. My secret love is Medieval lit.

Anyways, I wanted to get some opinions on how my interview went. I think I did well. I interviewed for a marketing production assistant's position. Obviously, I did well enough that HR sent me to be interviewed by the hiring manager. The other day, ask I was expecting the standard bs questions from the manager ("where do you see yourself in 5 years?" or "what are your strengths and weaknesses?"), I didn't get them. It was basically as if I was just meeting her for coffee or something. All she asked me was if I knew excel and what I have been doing since graduation. The whole time she was telling me about what that aspect of the company did and what the job entailed. I did ask her what her favorite part of the job was. She was taken aback a bit, but later said she liked finding creative solutions to problems. I had a fairly good vibe from the whole experience, but she was kind of hard to read. I did promptly send out my thank you note to her, that was Monday. I'm just not sure. I don't want to psych myself up so much, just to be let down. She seemed pretty laid back. I don't know what do you think? Thank you in advance.
