Where is the green grass?

There’s always 2 sides to everything, or more.

For my entire life, whether for myself or being a friend to others, it has been an experience of job/school/program application, interviewing, and waiting. There was always a lot of impatience, anxiety, frustration, and disappointment. Even after receiving an offer and accepting it, there’s the self-doubt after the excitement subsides.

What about the other side?

Recently, I have the unique opportunity to be on the other side of this process. The other side is definitely not necessarily the “advantaged” side asĀ  I or other people may have thought. There’s the waiting for applications, then waiting for the interview, then deciding to take the chance or not on the person, then waiting for them to accept or decline the offer. Same as the application process, there’s the self-doubt processĀ  of whether we chose the right candidate or if things turn out well in this thing I’m so invested in. And then, if the ideal candidate declined, there’s the what if scenario that would play forever. Who would have thought things were so difficult on this side?

The grass is not always greener on the other side.


Logged into wordpress after a long break away. I actually have something to blog about, but I noticed the daily prompt today and can’t not post that first. Rebel.

Burnaby South Rebels! Didn’t think much of the mascot and high school back in the day, but as time passes, I realize how much of an influence that 5 years has on my experience and today’s views. And of course, can’t believe how I’m so proud of this history and mascot I can’t resist not posting this daily prompt!
