I am annoyed. Last year my boss offered me my job back after summer even after I said I’d be studying abroad and wouldn’t be back until the New Year, they just told me to get in contact with them, which I did. I emailed, they didn’t reply, so a couple weeks later I re-sent my application when I say they were hiring.
Listen, I don’t think things should just be handed to me, but I think I can be forgiven for assuming I’d get my job back after they literally said “hey we’d love to have you back next year”. But nope!! I got an email today from the same woman that said this to my face stating that they wouldn’t be going forward with my application.
I’m not mad about not getting the job. I’m mad that they offered me the job back only to backtrack on that and ghosted me when I got in contact with them like they told me to.

I really wish this book would have picked a lane and stayed in it (prefferably the witchy sort of lane because I’m always going to enjoy that more). Besides that though, I finished the book with question marks still floating around my head. I was super excited about this one and it let me down.
