I try to be a man of my word; I take pride in that. Yesterday was supposed to end this blog; I really meant it. But you all have convinced me to continue, and besides, without a job I can’t afford a shrink so this will have to serve as “therapy”.
I am still reeling from this blow; for those of you who hadn’t heard or figured it out, I was trying to get a job with MailChimp. By chance I saw one of my now-not-going-to-be-coworkers at an iOS meetup last night, and he was surprised to hear that I didn’t get the job. Just like the many times a woman has deemed that I am not “the one”, I am closing this case and moving on. With time this wound, as the many that have previously been (self-)inflicted, will heal and will most likely leave a scar that I will carry to my end. However, I must go on.
So today? Don’t know what to make of today. I know that I will be swinging by Big Nerd Ranch to get the iOS programming book I won last week. From there I will be going to LA Fitness to burn off some anxiety and hopefully a little fat as well.
And the future? Don’t know what to make of that either. I will need a job. I do not wish to return to the rigors of the commute that I had prior to starting my hiatus, which I know limits my options. I know that I am now considering moving away, starting a new life elsewhere. Therefore in addition to practicing coding this weekend I will be spending time gathering possessions to get rid of in order to make relocating easier.
I may be back here on Monday. I am still working things out…
