As I suspected, I did not get the job at the Coolest Place Ever. Given the way the process was handled, I don’t feel like I was rejected, simply like I was not that good a fit.
However, as I also suspected, they liked me — so much so that they gave me a six-month free membership and a couple of classes. I will need to think about what classes I want to take. But in the meantime, I will certainly make use of their facility.
I have not been beading much lately. One contributing factor is that, as I — and my eyes — get older, I need more light to work, light I just don’t get in my house.
I would have loved to work there, but this is the next best thing.
