You can vent all you want

I've had the biggest professional dry spell than I ever have in years.
I'm in the middle of IT jobs right now, and I had this solid gig lined up, it was IN the bag, all I had to do was say yes.
Then I get a call from this hot shot law firm, they say they wanted to interview me for a prominent IT position.
I actually decided to DROP the first gig so I can take a chance with this law firm, I BLEW away the interview, like, CRUSHED it, hell, I even GRADUATED from a Web Development course that THEY held in their OWN building. I answered all of their questions, even went the extra mile on how to improve some of their systems and software, hell, I even studied their history from the ground up and I knew every single award they won. I'm a no-brainer shoo in for this job,
Then I get a call a week later and they say they're looking for someone "with a closer fit."
WHAT THE FUCK?
So now you're telling me I lost this FIRST job, and despite blowing away this interview, I didn't get the job?
Sorry, I really had to get that out. I've been through interview after interview and I'm just frustrated so I needed to let out some steam.2

Yeah almost all my friends let me down, abandoned me, some made promises that they couldnt keep. which is why I have trust issues and block my feelings, cause I just dont care anymore - everyone you meet will always disappoint you one way or another.1
