I didn’t get the job or even a call to be interviewed. Turns out I was downplaying how much the opportunity meant to me, I was crushed when I checked the job listings and found the posting gone. It still bums me out when i think about it. The only plan on the horizon right now is at least a year away, and it means another year with my company. There are days when I feel like I can handle it, and days when it’s all too much to imagine. I think I’m almost about done with the customer service business.
Re-reading the Hobbit and the LOTR the past week or so, and I came across the quote I used for my high school senior yearbook. I had completely forgotten about it…
The Road goes ever on and on
Down from the door where it began.
Now far ahead the Road has gone,
And I must follow, if I can,
Pursuing it with eager feet,
Until it joins some larger way
Where many paths and errands meet.
And whither then? I cannot say.
