My happiness was crushed by ‘the man’… … … got offered the opportunity of my dreams, (not the job of my dreams, but the door is slowly opening) and was on top of the world waiting for the grand opening to start work. I also had an amazing spontaneous trip planned to rock it at the Splendour in the Grass festival, that I was looking forward to that was organised before I got my job… everything was on the up and up… (Ominous music forming) … but… got an unexpected phone call in the A.M, while trying to sound awake, perky and alert, from my new boss telling me in no nicer words that ‘if I went on my trip that is on the same weekend as the opening (!!) they will have to re-hire’… … cue small panic attack and I’m instantly awake.
What a kick in the teeth.. amazing music festival with one of the greatest lineups… breaking my camping music festival cherry with my musical soulmate, plus forgiven boyfriend who came running back two weeks later. A chance to reconnect, to refresh, to revive my musical and human soul, to listen to shiver, crying all night, someone that I used to know, undertow, 6am, ruby, walk idiot walk, float on, feeding line, call it what you want, contact high, golden child, coming around, where im going… LIVE!! .. .. or.. .. a dream opportunity that I wrote a very personal heartfelt, time-consuming cover letter and resume for, went through two phone conversations, one interview, one rejection but received a second opportunity at a lower position, two months of waiting, second interview, JOB OFFER =D.. more waiting, numerous date changes and finally the promiseland only to have to choose between the two… (cue the sound of a nuclear bomb exploding).
So ’the man’ won, my boyfriend lost a lot of money and didn’t go either (wanting to spend his birthday with me, bless =D) and my musical soulmate took someone else.. ..all for nine hours of work over the whole weekend and no launch party to ease the pain.
