I did not have to go rogue!
I did not have to quit my job!
Funding was denied.
Great for me - ok, not so great, but good.
This means that everything is going to stay the same for the moment, and I have to opportunity to pitch my ideas again. I'm attending a huge meeting tomorrow - so huge, Jamaal actually helped me rehearse for it last night - and while decisions may not get made at this meeting, it's going to get the ball rolling, and it could mean that things
might start going my way in a good way, soon. Let's hope!
