{Ambedo} Counting Chickens Before Blah Blah Blah

I had a job interview yesterday. It came after a written test and phone interview. Making it to the final step of the process made me feel pretty confident going into the interview. I actually felt confident during and after the interview. So much so, that I was looking into getting ready to finally start building my house so I could move into it by the end of the summer and get it ready for Toki, Arya, and the birds to welcome a baby sphynx cat (I'm on the waiting list with Teoli Sphynx here in Colorado).

I got the email today that I did not get the job.

I feel pretty dumb buying myself these "Congrats on nailing that interview" house gifts:

I'm really disappointed about the whole thing right now. Other than the fact that rejection sucks and getting your hopes up only to be rejected sucks twice, it means I can't get started on building my house as soon as I would like.

Technically, this doesn't have anything directly to do with the sanctuary. When I get to start building my house doesn't impact them one way or the other. It would help me greatly, though. I have been feeling a lot of things that many disabled people feel about trying to live in an abled world, and having my own space to live and work would just give me that small bit of breathing room. It would make me feel like I have some control over my own life, some independence.

A part-time job would just help a lot right now.
