Y'all, I have to admit that I am proud of myself. After a day of rage, a day of panic and a day of moping I decided last night that I am just going to make the best of everything. Am I still disappointed? Sure. But I accepted their offer today, I am going to stay in my department, doing a smaller job for the same pay I make now. I have enough contacts that I think that I will find something else fairly fast. All I said to my boss is that I wanted us to spin this to the other girls in the most positive way possible. I cannot stand to have people feel sorry for me.
Ok. I don't like for people to openly feel sorry for me.
I think I actually impressed my boss with professionalism and good attitude. And, as karma would have it, she used to work with a woman that is hiring for the job I really want. She says she will call and recommend me. And I believe her.
I kept waiting for something good to happen. The weird thing is, this might be it.
Though I will still beat the shit out of anyone that says, "everything happens for a reason."
Don't be motherfuckers just because I am happy right now.
