So I applied for a job. (yay!)
I interviewed a few times (yay!)
I didn’t get the job (boo!)
I was rather upset yesterday when I heard back. You know that sinking feeling you get in your stomach when someone says, “unfortunately….”? Yeah, it was like that.
So, for an hour or so I moped around. I was in lab when I got the call so I sat there and worked a little more before giving up and leaving.
I sent a text to each of my parents. My mother, at lunch at the time, was the first to respond. She was comforting and apologized but I still felt like crap. So I called my dad.
He was with a client so he said he’d call back.
He called a little while later and we talked about the interview. I started to feel better. We talked about random stuff after that. Eventually, he told me Winnie the Pooh is a Daoist. I’m not sure where that came from but I hope someone can shed some light on it.
So, I’m looking for a job. Anyone need a Jr. Systems Administrator with an appetite for knowledge and enough drive to run a small website for months?
