All this build-up but in the end I never did make a go of it.
And I feel like I've let them down--the kind people I've met there and have stayed in touch with.
Parts of my time there, I've forgotten but I remember feeling a strong connection to that city. That's what tells me to keep holding on for something better.
Even if I never get there, it's what the goal represents that's most important.
My exclusive access to staff-only positions was renewed yet again this month and will now last until November 2015.
One more year to apply to job openings out there. Another chance to make Seattle my home.
So on this day of all days, I'm very grateful for that.
Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!!
