Overqualified? And sleepless...

Guess what, I am 'overqualified' for the one position I applied for. What does that mean? I'm too smart? I shouldn't have acted professional? I should have worn a nose ring, like the girl ahead of me?
Ok, I am of the belief that everything must happen for a reason and obviously the *prospective* employer didn't think I was a good fit.
Still, to feel like I did a good interview and then get that 'Dear Valerie' letter is quite disheartening to say the least.
Next job app..do I put down that I am in college? Do I mention my attributes and knowledge of software?
Or..
do I dumb it down.
All I want is a job, it can be an entry level job...in fact that is the best way to begin with a company, I thought.
Why do they turn you down when you are willing to work?

Well
Get on with it then.

Perhaps it is a good thing anyway. I am still fighting this shoulder surgery and am having a real tough time with it. It will be two weeks today...the 26th and I would have thought to have seen a huge improvement. Yet I still end up in incredible pain at least most of the day.
After all that is why I am posting at 3AM ... no comfort unless I get up and move around.
Hmmm, toughen up and suck it up.

PT in 5 hrs. Sigh. I hope we can figure out what is causing this continued amount of ICK.

I CAN'T BELIEVE IT!!! WHAT ARE THEY THINKING?!! IDIOTS! Okay so a door closes (maybe) and the better one will open. Hang in there. It's too soon for you to be working anyway.

Niki, that was my thoughts yesterday. All things happen for a reason, perhaps it is too soon and perhaps the gold mine is just around the corner.
