Just found out that I didn't get the job at Interview #1. Apparently I was a "close second," but unfortunately the "close second" position doesn't come with a salary.
A bit deflated. OK, honestly, more than a bit deflated. I know it's stupid of me to think that everyone should like me the best and to worry a little when they don't like me the best, but still.
Life goes on. Obviously, there are reasons I was not meant to be at this place. I'm sure they are good reasons, and I'm sure that I will never know what they are. I will be sad for a few hours. Then I will stop being sad and look forward to new opportunities.
