November 21, 2017, Prescott-
I was told that I am unqualified to work with international students.
This, after 5 years of working with Korean students, albeit 25-30 years ago, at the university level.
I have to remember, there are two types of unqualified: Under, and over.
The people running the corporation that minds these students prefer housewives and unemployed retirees, so I am underqualified, in those respects. They also prefer people who speak Mandarin, and I am definitely not filling that bill.
Getting smacked down by people of other points of view stings only as long as you let it.
My rebound is my writing, so I need to stop making excuses and set the time aside to put one or two books together. Even if sales are initially spotty, the money that comes in will equal whatever might have come from this other position. Besides, who knows? Circumstances in my life show signs of changing. Life might well have gotten in the way of working for the corporation. Everything happens for a reason.
