Rejected (and OK with it)

No, not the platelets I just donated this morning. I received a rejection e-mail for a bird banding job in Pennsylvania I had applied for. This was fully expected and is only a slight disappointment. My application was going to have much competition, especially from folks with higher education and greater peer-review prowess. But it was also one that I had to apply to; who says I don't have an ego?
For an idea of what I'm talking about please go to Powdermill's superb website. I hope to visit their grounds sometime this spring. Meantime, I'm off to print the e-mail and find a good frame for it...
