I had my hopes pinned on the potential for a job. It was a discussion, very brief, of the possibilities. The person I was talking to wanted it, but it didn’t work out on their end. The job was right up my alley and something I wanted to do.
But the guy’s staff didn’t like the result. So as they closed that door, one of his staffers opened a window. It’s not a sure thing, but the window is open and I have a chance. And even if this window opens, it’s the first time I feel validated since I lost my job. Obviously there are a few political nuances that are keeping me vague, but the difference a chance makes in my outlook is tremendous.
So I’m feeling good and celebrating with a milkshake. Amazing how quickly your outlook can change.
But that’s not all I’ve got going on. I’m excited about Geek Palaver, a new blog site that while available isn’t really running yet, but will be. It’s a group of geeks that plan on talking about all kinds of interesting stuff, and I hope to grow that. I’m still working on Beyond The Boards, and the response to it continues to grow. And there are other freelance gigs brewing. Suddenly it seems a lot less hopeless.
I also attended a meeting of WEDC today. I was an invited guest since the group was honoring my mother-in-law. While I expecting to be depressed following it, I was uplifted! It was a moving meeting full of surprises, including the announcement that the educational scholarship in Mary’s name is almost fully funded.
So today is a good day. A door closed, but a window opened.
