My company has been having financial woes since the startup of two spin off companies in the past year so I was laid off today. They gave me two weeks notice and asked me to continue working until today. I thought long and hard about my future and decided maybe it was a good thing. After all, I probably would never quit on my own and the stress has been killing me.
I've been there six years.
Earlier this year I signed up for an Algebra class. I hated it and dropped it. Well, since the layoff was coming, I went and talked to a guidance counselor. We decided it might be best to go full time to school for a while and then look for work in the fall, if my money can hold out. I only need seven more classes for an associate's degree in pre-management. I was able to sign up for two classes which really surprised me since it's almost mid-term. Now I have full days scheduled on Monday and Wednesday. Maybe I can find a part time job evenings or Tuesdays and Thursdays.
The only thing that's constant in life is change.
I'm home, lost my job
