I had a fantastic day today. I had a great time with a good friend all day long. And then I checked email. The job I expected to get in Japan, with the promising interview, was not offered to me. There are other prospects, and it's not the end of the world, but it sure feels like it. Needless to say, I'm not much in the writing mood, and for that matter I'm not in the mood to do much at all. But I know I need to write this, just to help me out emotionally. In fact, writing just this paragraph has helped a lot. I just know, reading the email, I could feel the depression set in.
I'm probably going to be sporadic in my posts for a while. Then again, maybe I'll be inspired to write a whole bunch of posts. I'm not exactly sure. I'll be okay. I'll be keeping up with reading. I have plenty of cards to scan, write about, and catalog. I have extras to sort so I can finally clear them out. Plus, I have so much else I can do.
As I said, I'll be okay. I need to work this anger and disappointment off. It could be a day, a week, a month. I know writing will help get my mind off things, but (only an hour after the fact) talking about happiness just isn't in me.
But thank you for reading and your support over the past several months. I don't feel that I say that enough. It's been great talking and trading cards, and it will continue. This isn't the end, and maybe not even a break. Only time and my heart will tell.
