A Midsummer Night's Dream Of What Could Have Been


Once again Midsummer's Eve, one of those much hyped public holidays in Sweden - but still, I hope you're having a good, happy summery one under the amazing Scandinavian night sky that never gets completely dark this time of year.

Myself I'm probably going to brood a bit (too much) about an issue - that had a whole lot of potential of becoming a more than really decent job - that I had invested a whole lot of time, energy, effort, work into. I had every right to have really high hopes for this, the position was practically invented just for me, the long interview went great, the ambiance felt very positive, my gut feeling as well as all those little signs all pointed in one direction.

And then they didn't even have the darn common decency to make a personal phone call to tell me "sorry but..." - instead I got a default e-mail. I feel insulted, angry, disappointed, mopish, and there's not a thing I can do about the immense burning question "why" for a whole extended weekend. So, personally, I'm going to have a non-happy Mopesummer. Add melancholic dream of what could have been.

Thanks, Wendy. This was really lousy timing too, before the long weekend, I'm so very curious what went wrong, come Monday morning phonecall right away!
