Laid off this morning due to financial hardships. No, it was no reflection of me. No, it wasn’t a “you’re fired” scenario. Laid off, again, due to financial hardships. I knew it was coming, and anyone who follows knows it too. When a company can’t pay their employees, or bills, then it’s just pending when lay off(s) will happen.
I am starting to feel like I’m a curse to hire. Every place I get hired onto goes out of business, or goes into financial fail. My track record thus far:
NW Delivery – Laid off, Financial Hardships
Alco Electric – Laid off, Financial Hardships
Renton Lutheran Church – Laid off, company closure
Providence Medical Center (Cancer Care Center) – Laid off, company buy out / position eliminated
Providence Medical Center (Comprehensive Breast Center) – Laid off, company buy out / position eliminated
The positives of being laid off:
Time to work on my novel.
Even more time to game. (bwahha)
Time to contemplate going back into college; refresher course.
Time to organize my house how I want it.
More time to walk the dogs
Addendum; more to be thrilled about:
Staying up as late as I want
