status of the madness 09.09.05

The official word came in today. I am fired for sure.

If I really impress them, they might consider me for part time work.


I'm still reeliing a bit from the shock. In all honestly, I was pushing them to fire me; the pricks just did it about three months too soon.

I'm not sure what I am going to do; my mind is still having trouble holding onto any single thought long enough to make a plan.

I'm going to get some sleep and clean the house, just do something mindless until I get settled down. Then I'll figure something out.

Thanks again to everyone for your support and advice. I've read it all, and it's up there in my head with everything else, waiting to be sorted and considered. I appreciate the sympathy and concern. I'll be back in touch once I figure out what I'm going to do.

Hey 5 speed wake up, drink some caffeine and update the resume. I have a format a headhunter did for me if you want to use it. Good luck on the search but get the resume on monster and hot jobs THEN you can go back to sleep

All things happen for a reason

A stitch in time saves nine

There is harmony in disharmony

Behind the clouds, the sun is shining

It could be worse

Feeling bad is just a new sensation

Tomorrow is another day

Every cloud has a silver lining

There is a light at the end of the tunnel

After the rain comes a rainbow

It's always darkest before the dawn

It has to get worse, before it gets better

Every rose has its thorn

Midnight is where the day begins

Cheer up, it's not the end of the world

This too, shall pass

Life's not so bad, when you consider the alternative

The sharper is the berry, the sweeter is the wine

OK...I'm out of clich├ęs. If this didn't help...come on over...we'll drink heavily.

See my comment on your last post.

Clean the house, take a nap, take a walk, stretch. Call some friends, have a drink (but not too many), mope around (but not too much), have dinner with your family if they're around, lie in bed tomorrow and have fun not setting the alarm, write, read, dream, plan your future... don't live in the past.

Realize that this is the start of something new, and the end of something that made you miserable. It hurts when the decision is not your own, but after your ego heals, the result is the same. You're done. And you're free. It's all up o you what you want to make of this opportunity.

I think dano has a point. Get something out there on the ether and then disconnect for a bit. That way it'll be working for you while you do what you need to do.

Oh, and enjoy the part of you that feels relief. That's called freedom, freedom from being tied to something we hate. It'll be useful down the road, when you are ready to separate out the SHOULDS from the FEELS RIGHTS.

If all else fails, go drink with TALL.

Yeah, I'm still [blog 1hotwahine]

They probably didn't deserve one with your brand of loyalty, anyway. It is gonna be alright, bo. Promise ya. Maybe even better. You didn't really lose a job, you were just given a new opportunity. Get your ass up off the fuckin' ground, Ranger! No snivellers!

Dano, I keep an updated resume on Monster and Dice at all times, even when I'm working. I went to the unemployment office today and filed a claim just in case, contacted two head hunters I know from different agencies, applied for a number of positions at Virginia Tech, and handed my resume to everyone in this town that owes me a favor.

Can I sleep now? I'm tired!

you have a is to get a job. don't quit. widen the blinders. think about what you like to do and find a way to make money at it. look beyond your town, your state, your country. look at an internet business. you have so much potiental that only you will restrain yourself. get after it, Ranger. get that job done...

I'm glad you said that. A big part of me does feel relief, and it does feel really good. I'm not sure how it will feel in two months when I'm out of Ramen and my car gest reposessed, but it feels good now!

wetpanties, I brought it up on myself, so I can't blame them. The job has been wilting me for months, and my performance was slipping more and more. It was going to happen sooner or later, although I was angling for later...

But it was killing me, because I am used to being the guy you come to when you need something done right the first time, no matter what, and I saw myself messing up more and more, hating it... too stubborn to quit...

*Puts down the 15" cock* But I was so looking forward to punishing you. Darn it. I guess I'll just have to find other ways to torture you.

Hey 5, can you say unemployment benefits? Go for it and move on. Let them pay your while for awhile. You earned it! You are going to be just fine! Get an SBL and start your own business. The possibilities are endless.............
