the end of something

Yesterday, I was laid off from work. I have just finished cleaning out my desk, taking all the pictures down from the walls, and clearing all my personal files off of this work computer. It's a weird, sad, frightening thing. Who knows... maybe I will be called back at some point... or maybe this will be the start of something completely new and better.

I don't have internet access at home right now, so updates might be spotty for a bit.

that absolutely blows; I am so sorry you got laid off! G.W.(II)'s economy is kiilin' the job market
~a couple of summers ago I was too laid off...interviewed all summer, got kudos from every interviewer about how great my tan was (many days at the pool on a floatie).
In the end, it made me a better, stronger more resiliant (and tanned) person.
I hope the best for you and may this time off be short, at best!

Sorry to hear that, Jules. A friend of mine just got laid off as well. Our economy’s in a bigtime slump. Best of luck to you in your job hunt. Go get 'em. One window closes, another one opens.
