Today Sucks Large

Okay, I'm extra grouchy at the moment, and I'm blogging about it, which is probably not a good sign. If you want to keep your cheery picture of me, SKIP THIS POST. This post was never here....

So anyway, for those of you who just can't stop yourselves:

I've been so busy and not blogging lately because I got two academic interviews back to back. I flew to Georgia last week on Wednesday, interviewed Thursday (all day long), and flew back to KC Friday with just two hours before my second interview. I felt I did really well in both interviews, but this is an incredibly competitive field...

I know that the school in Georgia is not hiring me. This is why I'm in a crap-tastic mood. I don't yet know about the one in KC, but the more I think about it, I don't really want to move back to the city.

So, odds are, in the next few months I'll be blogging about helping run a fast food restaurant. I've got nearly 8 years of experience and am in management already, so I'm just planning to make it official. I can be good at this job, and I can make things work. I'm just disappointed right now and wondering why I spent ten years in college to do this.

I was really sorry to hear about ABAC. I admire you for sucking it up for a while and doing a job you're way overqualified for to pay the bills; I know it can't be easy. I'm in no position to judge anyone for not living up to their full potential at all times; I just hope you aren't giving up altogether. You guys know where to find me if you ever need help.

I have no idea what you are talking about...

hahahahaha, karl's comment was drily funny there (he is in the same boat).

I am so sorry about Georgia-- I thought that was a good fit.

Boy, for a bunch of Truman graduates, we are certainly a bunch of sad sacks, huh?
