I have gone silent again. Mostly because talking about the job loss and the interviews and the waiting is tedious to live through and tedious to write about. Thought I would update you on what has been happening since I last wrote.
I have been interviewing and sending out resumes for weeks now. Some great conversations but so far no offers. I have to believe the right one is out there, but for now I am still applying and waiting. This Friday is my last day at my current job and I am facing unemployment for the first time in 5 years. I need a miracle and I need it soon.
It is amazing how far things have fallen since March. I was planning a move and telecommuting for a company I loved to staying where I am and realizing that in less than a week I will be jobless as well.
I have been emailing people to say goodbye, cleaning out my office and checking back with all of the places that I applied to see if anyone can be eliminated from my lists. A couple of the recent ones I know I will need to wait.
The waiting is the frustrating part right now. I am not good at it and I don’t like it. (Hrumph – arms crossed over chest and a pout on my lips) I sound a little bit like my 12 year old self there but I need that bit of whining at this moment.
I am hoping to get back to writing again. I may need the outlet.
