Write four lines of prose which have something to do with the idea of: down but not out.
I figured it was probably time to let you guys in on what's been going on behind the scenes (there have been clues in the prompts recently, especially this week, but I thought I should probably clear up any suspicions that may have begun to grow). I had hoped it would be a happy announcement, but it wasn't meant to be this time around.
Work this evening at the community center was very slow. Not that I minded, but I was surprised.
A full-time permanent position opened up at town hall, so I applied before the late June deadline. I found out the afternoon of the day the posting closed that they wanted to interview me - but not until a month later (due to interviewers being away and/or unavailable).
I had my interview on Tuesday and felt like it went pretty well... then heard yesterday afternoon that they'd chosen another applicant.
Obviously I've been feeling pretty bummed since then, but I know I'll bounce back soon enough, and that I won't let this setback keep me down.
