I hate (hatehatehatehatehate!) when those all-too perfect job opportunities come around. You know the ones - the job in the good location, that marries your personal background and skill sets with things for which you have a driving passion. The ones that make you want to reach through the monitor, grab the HR person by the lapels, shake them and say, "Forget those other losers. You want ME! That's MINE now!"

I always (without fail, every time) get optimistic. I get worked up and dream nice dreams. And, of course, because most applications don't work out, invariably those hopes are dashed, and I feel like crap until the next one comes along, or I land some other not-entirely=-perfect gig and stop looking for a while.

(Un)Fortunately, I would prefer dashed hopes to the self-fulfilling prophecy of not making the attempt. Full steam ahead!
