I’m definitely glad that I will be remaining in my profession, and not straying into something vastly different for not a large enough payoff to warrant the risk, but you’re right... “happy” is not what I’m feeling. Honestly, it was an EXTREMELY stressful ordeal. I was prepared to leave the job that has become a part of who I am, and then I decided not to at the exact last moment, and had to speak to the folks who would have hired me and politely decline. I did not sleep a wink the night before last, and last night I was up late working.
So yeah. Not exactly happy, but I am relieved and I never actually wanted to leave my job in the first place.
