Some people rejoice at this word. Most of the time, it’s when they win, “by default.” Some of the time, it’s because they think of the band with that name. And I’m sure that there are plenty of other reasons.

There are, however, many ways where this word brings frustration and agony. Most of the time, it’s when a party defaults on something: a loan, a game, and so on.

This morning, I defaulted.

As I wrote in my previous entry, I had a bit of a dilemma last night. I didn’t know what to do with my co-op position. It turns out, however, that by sleeping on it, I sorta made the decision for myself.

Rankings closed at 10:00am. I found out about this by signing onto Jobmine at 10:03am. To my complete surprise, the drop-down lists that were once there for me to rank employers were gone. And instead of “Ranking Open”, I saw “Offer”, “Ranked”, “Offer.”

I didn’t end up ranking any job by the time the rankings closed. I thought that I’d be able to do it during the day today but, to no surprise, co-op gave that idea the coup-de-grace. A call to my co-op advisor reassured me that fate.

Fate (or ignorance), as it seems, has forced my hand. Or maybe it was God. I did ask for guidance with this decision, but this was a most unusual way for Him to answer that prayer. Sometimes, He really does have a wicked sense of humour.

At least I don’t have to move.

    You already know my opinion. God works in mysterious ways.

    Okay, so now that I’ve reread your post…congratulations, even if it’s not what you expected to have happen. As your housemate says, God works in mysterious ways; there must be a reason that He’s keeping you here.
