    Keep an eye on me then, but you shouldn't see anything alarming. i'm neither a striver or duplicitous.

    Thank You everyone for the kind words.......I've come to the conclusion that where I am now is a happy compromise between what I believe in vs. my skill level/abilities vs. the fact that I did go to college. And even on a trying day it's usually not hard to remember that at least I'm not waiting tables! Rob

    It sounds like you're just where you should be; here's to that always being so.

    Hello!

    I think this is the key point. You gave your best, so nothing to blame yourself. Great that you are satisfied even as you did not get the job.

    Had a similar situation. The job I applied for was very interesting, but also very demanding. I was not 100% sure it was the right thing for me, but I did not want to miss that opportunity. Did my best, but did not get the job. But I tried, and I don't have to wonder what might have been if...

    Regards
    Jay
