THe Skinny Letter

Today when I came home from work, the dreaded Skinny Letter from SMCC was sitting in my mailbox.

I didn't get the job.

    Thank you for you application for the English Instructor at Southern Maine Community College.

    The Search Committee enjoyed meeting with you at your recent interview. The committee was forced to make a difficult decision. I regret to inform you that you were not chosen for this position.

    We appreciate your interest in Southern Maine Community College BLAH BLAH BLAH.

So that's that.

I feel sick to my stomach, like I've had the wind knocked out of me.

Trying to tell myself all the old adages, such as "it wasn't meant to be," "things happen for a reason," and "when a door closes a window opens."

But it doesn't help much.

Raf has suggested tennis, yoga and going for a walk to get my mind off of it, but I just want to curl up in a ball for a while.
