" ach, there was a position as a render wrangler available for a temporary time, so i applied but they gave it to a less qualified candidate"
-They probably thought otherwise, i don't know if you talk like that at work aswell, but if i were the guy evaluating someone that talked about their colleagues like that the other person would already had a head start.
And people who ask are open minded and not affraid to be called stupid but let their enthousiasm for their work guide them and those people tend to get a lot further.
" Its annoying as i know i was the better applicant, but i'm not a jump around and be over the top kind of guy"
-Apparently you do
".... she can't even use linux!!"
-Me neither, unless.........I have a hammer
What are you complaining about anyways, I know a couple of people from Brittain who are struggling to even have a job and there you are working at MPC(i pressume), a company where you can grow since there are a lot of talented people who are working there you are getting free tickets to the new Harry Potter movie and al you can do is complain.
You should enjoy your work not be envious of people who just get lucky or finally achieve something for themselves.
What's a goal if you don't enjoy the road to it?
