My former employer whipped out more awesome today, AGAIN firing people in batches... Because, why tell expendable people one by one when you can knock off 20 at a time? (Sarcasm)
Some of the people I worked with and ate lunch with got hit today, and two years after it happened to me, I am shocked at how quickly time has gone by. I'm still shaking my head at the heartlessness, not to mention how much offshoring ANY job to effing India offends me.
I remember the people who reached out to me after I lost my job and I remember the ones who didn't bother to call or email...
For me, it was the best thing in the world. I needed to get out of there. And overall I am so much happier now, though I miss a few people. Work no longer crushes me from the inside out.
My finances are not ideal but they are slowly creeping in the right direction. I need to figure out what my 'next' career plan will be.
It's going to get better, kids. I really do believe that. Whatever is on your plate, don't give up hope. We can always start over.
I'm off to kiss a cute baby face tomorrow. Road trip!!!
