Rejected and Dejected

So after all the thinking, the flying the freaking mad ass interviewing, the flying, the talking, the pro/con list and the endless debating going on in my head, it looks like we won't be moving to Georgia after all.

I got a rejection email today. And not even an email from anyone I had been talking to like say the Director of Conference Services, the Assistant Director of Conference Services or even someone in Human Resources. No I got a generic email saying that the position has been filled. And no word from Michael since Monday. I mean we were talking every day before we went out to Georgia and then all of a sudden NOTHING. And it's fine, but kinda frustrating.

So apparently I'm a loser and have let Garren down. He of course says I haven't but secretly we all know I have.....And he hasn't even heard from them regarding his position.

Maybe they just decided on someone who was already at the hotel that they could train. I mean that way they cut out the cost of moving someone out. There could be lots of factors but it's hard not to feel like it's just because they don't think I'm good enough.

Which is silly because I know given half the chance that I can be great at what I do. But apparently they didn't think so.

Loser I'm a loser. And so unless Garren gets the position he applied for, and we decide to go for whatever reason, we're still back at square one, realizing that we need to move out of Santa Barbara but unsure of where to go or what to do.

On the bright side, I'm still going to get to go to the Daft Punk concert in July and Dave Matthews in October. Ooo and now maybe I can buy tickets to Snow Patrol in July....if it's not already sold out. Damn.

Personally, I've always hated Georgia. You're too good for those peach-eating, crunk-getting, from-convicts-descending, overcountied jerks. I also hear Georgia is known for its spacious townhouses and full-size futons.

OHMG! SO CUTE! You're fostering aren't you?! I am so jealous. I should totally do that here just to drive Garren and Willoughby crazy. Oh the love!

I'm still in to visit Portland I think. And if I can still stowaway at the beach I'd love to come for that too.

Seriously, Georgia? The crappiest state. The leading cause of death in Georgia is spontaneous combustion; something in the water regularly makes people explode. I am totally not making this up. Also, everyone who lives there has to tithe thirty percent of their income to the State Church of Georgia. And anyone who works in the hotel industry has to undergo a mandatory lobotomy. These are the facts. You're better off on this coast.

totally fostering. with six 1-week old kittens and their momma. i pet them with one finger on the head so as not to break them. and they mewl at me. i just got them today which is why they're still in the crate. baby baby kittens!!!

i'm pretty sure you can come to the beach. though we might have to sleep in the living room. no, you know what? james can sleep in the living room. suck it, james! we can probably have a bedroom to share. and there will be a tiny baby there. ok, she'll be almost 2 months old. but still tiny. i'll email you with more details about the oregon trip.

I want to go to Oregon. But I don't want to go to the beach. I want to go to Powell's.
