Looking for new options and opportunities.

Hey all, sorry to not post in a while.

Isn’t life funny? Just when you think everything is great, all hell breaks loose.

To make a long story short, I was let go from my job last Friday. I can’t say I was completely surprised. A few months ago, the company where I worked was sold to a new owner. The final two weeks at my job were weird. People treated me differently, and the new owner would hardly talk to me, and never would look me in the eye. I was on my way back to the office after a Dr. appointment last Friday and I remembered it was payday. And I thought to myself, “I wouldn’t be surprised if they fired me today.” I laughed. So, there were signs something was up.

It’s taken me this long to feel social again. I’ve been busy networking with contacts looking at options and opportunities. There are a few that are intriguing; I’m hoping something will gel within the next few weeks.

I’ll post again soon!

So bring me up to date on what I’ve missed.

Sorry to hear about you losing your job and how they treated you along the way. That sucks.

Let me drive. I like the view

Bummer! I too wish you the best in finding something, preferably soon, and better.

Reminds me of a greeting card I saw some years ago.
COVER: When life gives you lemons...
INSIDE: ...tuck 'em inside your bra. Can't hurt, might help.

Judging from your profile photo, though, you don't really need help in that area.

I'm glad you are starting to feel social again. I missed your blog.

I had the same thing happen to me two weeks before Christmas one year. Nice.

To tell you the truth, I hated the job but I hated feeling ambushed and deceived even more!

Anyway, think of this as a time to recharge your batteries.

If it's any consolation, I ended up working at a bigger and better company.

Take good care...

I know how it is loosing a job, went through a rough time with that a few years ago. Not that my advice is worth much, but I'd say go back to the roots of what you really love to do and it will work out. When stress becomes intense, a little recreational sex is always a nice release, of course I'm sure you dont need to told that.

it happens to all of us,hang in there. temp agencies sometimes work, once you get the temp job, be great at it and you'd be surprised what reasons they can come up with to get rid of someone who isn't cutting it...then full time for you is just around the corner. it works. good luck, Sexy.

It happens, probably due for a break anyways. You sound bright, so I think it will be too difficult for you to find another job soon. Good luck out there.
