No job yet

I didn't get the job or even a call to be interviewed. Turns out I was downplaying how much the opportunity meant to me, I was crushed when I checked the job listings and found the posting gone.  It still bums me out when i think about it.  The only plan on the horizon right now is at least a year away, and it means another year with my company.  There are days when I feel like I can handle it, and days when it's all too much to imagine.  I think I'm almost about done with the customer service business. Re-reading the Hobbit and the LOTR the past week or so, and I came across the quote I used for my high school senior yearbook.  I had completely forgotten about it...

The Road goes ever on and on Down from the door where it began. Now far ahead the Road has gone, And I must follow, if I can, Pursuing it with eager feet, Until it joins some larger way Where many paths and errands meet. And whither then?  I cannot say.
