Wish I could help more but I guess all I can say now is we're here for you when you need to share how you're feeling.

Turn this around. It can be exciting to not know what, exactly, will be happening. Attitude is so hard to change, but if you can muster up the courage to shine no matter what you will see amazing results.

Breathe deeply
Drink water
Take walks
Enjoy the MOMENT
Train yourself to think good things

Your life is now, don't let yourself wallow in anything negative

I am so very sorry. FWIW, I've been going through a lot of interviews and job applications before I found a job. In hindsight, I'm glad things worked out the way they did...if I'd been offered an earlier job, I'd have taken it and most of them would have been a much worse fit.
For me, the frustration was what I knew was coming up next year and also feeling like a failure when I wasn't offered a position.
I sat in on a few interviews and learned (at least with our principal) that it isn't always rational....the decisions made to bring people in for interviews and those that were hired were not the best candidates or the ones desired by the teachers.

I havenít gotten a call for a gen ed interview from the school I applied at. My district has hired two outside people for gen ed positions that Iím qualified to teach. Iím already dreading next year.

Thanks for listening to me whine and complain, again.
