*sigh*

Ok, so the job at Mars Interactive is kaput.

This basically is because there was a specific time frame that they needed me to start by. While it looked likley that I would be able to start then, the visa fun meant that it couldn't be guarenteed. So I was a risk they couldn't take. Great huh?

I'm depressed and angry, well duh... no surprises there. Powell was really nice about the whole thing and I know he wanted me to work there... he aparently spent a large part of the weekend trying to talk Jay out of it.. but no luck there. I understand the reasons for it, so no real blame.. I'm just pissed off that after the good news of the earlier visa apointment and I was getting my hopes up.. *smack* thou shalt not have hope young man...

So I'm heading home. Great. Back to the Uk.. where I have zero chance of a job that pays actual money, and less chance than that of actually finding a place to live that isn't my parents. Fabulous. Great.

Yes you read that right.. I'm heading back next week. Excuse me while I go wallow in self pity and failure.

Awww. That's such horrible news. :( I'm sorry that had to happen.

No way you can get a job with another company in the US?

Geepy cripes, that's awful. What a disappointment.

Keep looking, though, something may pop up unexpectedly.

ouch!
Hugs. Maybe a way will open up before you leave? There is always hope for that. If you do have to go back, hopefully it won't be too long before another opportunity comes a knockin. But that sucks that you have to go back.

Ahhhhhhhhhhhh!
No,no,no! I cant and wont have this! I belive I speak for many when I say we love you! Get married, get married now!! Hell I'll marry you if thats what it takes! It would have to be Vermont of course due to the fact its not recodnized in any other states... I can only convey my feelings of aingst, I only hope this insn't the last oppertunity you get, remeber most things are possible in a country of mutts, my father came over on an old yacht from Cuba for crist sake! I will miss ya but I have a feeling things may work out if not now in the future. Dont ask how, I dont know. Take care. You always have a latin friend in the "States"
Best wishes, Torres
