It's really not going to be a bad meeting at all, but it is one of those times when you have to rationalize why someone didn't get hired for a position. The simple fact is that we have too many qualified people for a limited number of positions. It's a microcosm of the bigger issue facing many job searchers today.
Other than that, it's a simply beautiful day today here in sunny New Hampshire. My fiancee and I have our dance lesson later today, and I may be heading down to Boston for the day on Saturday. I will be chaperoning a school trip to the big city, but other than making sure everyone gets back on the bus, I don't think I have any real responsibility. I'll find out for sure later on.
I have been playing an awful lot of Sid Meier's Alpha Centauri recently. In fact, I just installed the expansion pack, Alien Crossfire, a few days ago, even though I bought it a few years back. I enjoy these "god" games, they're terribly addictive for my personality. If I could get a job just playing these games, I'd do it. That's why sometimes I just stop playing the games for months at a stretch. Otherwise, I get too sucked into the game itself.
Okay, I'm off to read the file for the meeting now. Enjoy the day, wherever you are.
