US bank account for US citizen but not resident

I'm a US citizen and live in the UK. I don't have a US bank account, and I'm headed to the US for a family emergency where it would help if I did. My stress-addled brain can't handle the google advice, which is all for US residents who aren't citizens. Could you suggest a bank in San Diego where I could walk in and open an account with a US passport, UK residency card and license, and a cash deposit?

How to respond to "won't you be bored?" job interview question.

I'm looking for a new job. My current job is fine, but I've recently moved and want something local as the world opens back up. I'm an artist who has generally been comfortable working square admin jobs the past ten years, a job that gives me the time and brainspace and money to do the stuff I actually care about. A question in a job interview yesterday has thrown me into a depressive spiral and I can barely get out of bed: "Would this job be enough for you?" Not money, but, y'know, personal fulfillment.
