Whelp, election day in the good ol’ USA. I don’t think we’re going to announce a winner today/tonight or even tomorrow, but I think we might have an idea. Maybe? It’s surely not going to be a landslide. That’s what makes this election so anxiety-inducing.
I did my morning meditation and my workout and my wonderful morning routine, so that was a help, but I still can’t help having this angst today.
Storefronts are boarded up in my neighborhood downtown and tensions just seem so high. As I was driving through the downtown streets this morning, people were agitated. There was a fight happening between what looked like a homeless man and another guy (at 7:30 in the morning!) in front of a 7-Eleven.
I hate to say this because it was a choice to live in this urban setting, but I honestly can’t wait to get out of the central business district.
And who knows how long this will take to find out who the winner is. I don’t think it will be tonight, but will it even be this week? This month? By the end of the year?
The suspense is killing me!
Speaking of suspense, the wait is over to hear something back from Giant Corporation for the botched technology during the interview two Fridays ago. I heard back. Got the good ol’ form rejection letter this morning. So, thanks for all of the hours spent on a project, fuckers. But I’m not surprised. I’m bummed, yes. But it really was a major flub that never should have happened. Still, form emails are so gross.
I know a few people who’ve worked for Giant Corp and one of them told me it was the worst job he’s ever had and said he went into business for himself after he quit that job, but eh. Rejection is rejection no matter what. It never feels good.
Okay, it’s time to take a walk with the pup, so I think I’ll end here for now.
Fingers crossed for a non-violent outcome,
