No really, I'm not that much of a flake anymore!

Has your past ever come back to haunt you in the workplace? I think that I lost the lead for my old job because of how flakey I was when I worked there before. I went through some very rough times mentally and with my marriage and well, I was just a damn flake. Of course, now that I'm a totally different person and would be perfect for the job, I don't have a sturdy leg to stand on.

Yes, I found out that the job I wanted most was offered to someone else last week. I still have an interview this morning for the second position and while I want this job just as much, it wouldn't be working as closely with all my old friends. I don't know, maybe that is a good thing? The second job would be a challenge in that I don't know all the ins-n-outs of the job and would be learning lots of new things. It also sounds like the second job has more responsibilities in training and such, so maybe it isn't such a bad thing?

Surprisingly, I'm pretty calm about the whole thing. I think I knew last week that the job really wasnt mine. I won't go into it, but it was just a feeling. Interviewing today should be more nerve rattling since I know that there is only one position. I don't know, I guess I've just realized that life goes on. If I don't get this job, I'll get something else. Everything will work out in the end.

On that note, I need to go iron my shirt, polish my shoes and run through the shower. I hope everyone has a great day!
