Job Search Update.

I found out this morning that I didn't get a job that I interviewed for a few weeks ago. I have to admit that I'm disappointed. I had felt really good about the interview and thought there was a strong possibility that I would get it. I'm trying to think of what I could have done differently. Why is it so hard not feeling personally rejected when you don't get a job offer?
I have an interview tomorrow afternoon with an architecture firm in midtown, very close to where I used to live. I suppose I'm interested in the job but the thought of driving back and forth to midtown everyday makes me feel anxious, I hate commuting. Also, I'm a little afraid after talking with my interviewer last week, he's a partner in the firm and was telling me about the interview process, the rounds of interviews, who all I'll meet with, having to take a timed graphic design test (in a program I'm not very familiar with). Scary stuff.
I had a phone call yesterday from a place that I would really love to work for. This is for a writer/editor position I wrote about a few months ago, back at the beginning of my job search. Its only taken them three months to get back in touch with me but nevermind, I can put that behind me. They had only called me to ask for writing samples, no big deal yet but I am crossing my fingers for an interview. I asked yesterday what their timeline is for filling the position and my contact said they wanted to fill it ASAP. Hey, what a coincidence, I'm available ASAP! Maybe something will work out....
