Reboot. Recharge.

When all else fails, just shut it down for 5 seconds and turn it back on. Just like new!

I recently took a chance and applied for what I consider would be my dream job. I didn’t tell anyone I was applying for it. It would have been a substantial reduction in payment, but I’m telling you, the job was something I would have done FOR FREE.
I was both over qualified and under qualified for this position, but I still felt it was necessary to apply for it. Upon hitting the send button of my email, I became filled with hope. You know that feeling you get, where for just a minute, there seems to be a glimmer of hope, a light at the end of the tunnel so to speak, and you think everything is going to change and be all better. I carried that hope with me and went back to it for a few days, and was confident that I would get this job. Unfortunately, I did not even get an interview, as I was told that there was a potential pool of candidates that had the correct set of qualifications. Deep down inside, I kind of figured that I would not get considered, however, that hope felt good, even if just for a few days.
