But when I do it is rather petty. Some of my more retentive readers should remember how I tried to get hired on as an RA, only to become an alternate. I personally know most of the people who got hired, so a little green eye comes out in me whenever I hear one of them express excitement about the job. My roommate was hired, but he doesn’t talk about it much. It just makes me think “how do I not fit into the team dynamic?” Now I have other things to pursue for next school year, so I have largely gotten over green eyed beast. For now.
