Sorry for the lack of posts. I've been a little MIA lately. You guys know that I usually don't slack off on my blogging, but unfortunately I've been in a major funk and when I get depressed it's hard for me to be creative.
As you know my company laid some people off a little over a month ago and I was lucky to make it through the first round of layoffs. Unfortunately, I wasn't so lucky about two weeks ago when they made the second round of layoffs. I got a tap on the shoulder and was told to come to the conference room along with a few other employees. We were given the boot and it just really sucks. Not only was I told that today would be my last day, but they insisted on escorting each one of us to our desks as if we were common criminals. I mean, ya know, I understand it's policy and everything, but what a shitty way to end things. So humiliating!
I really loved that job. I feel like I worked the hardest that I've ever worked and I gave that place my all. I felt so good about myself for not calling out sick and for showing up on time everyday and for always having a positive attitude at work. I just cant think of anything else I could have done better, so I'm just at a loss.
Whenever I fucked up in my personal life or I got in a fight with a friend or things didn't work out with a guy, I thought to myself "well, at least I still have my job". And now, I don't even have that to fall back on. I'm back at square one and I'm not feeling very hopeful.
I went to a meeting tonight and there were about 40 people there. I swear to you more than half of the room was unemployed at this time. Every other day I hear about another friend getting laid off and it's scary. I don't even know where to begin looking for jobs. I don't want to go through another year of learning a new job and then get laid off again.
I'm thinking maybe I'll try the medical fields since they seem to be in high demand. I dunno.
So, yeah, I'm depressed and sad and scared and life just isn't looking so bright for me right now.
I got a text from my friend David earlier tonight and he had two free tickets to the 'O' Cirque Show at the Bellagio for tonight. So, I met him over there for 10:30 show and I was not disappointed. I knew it was going to be awesome and it was. So, at least I got out of the house and shut my head down for a good hour and a half. I have to be honest, I had a hard time concentrating on the show and just letting loose because my head kept running.
I would recommend 'O' to anyone who hasn't seen it. It's a pretty amazing show. I've been wanting to see it since I moved here and I finally got my opportunity so that was a pretty cool thing.
At any rate, I know that things could be a lot worse and at least I'll be getting unemployment for quite a while. I think I can collect it for a whole year actually and then Obama might even be doing another extension so that's pretty cool.
And that's it folks. Hope you had a happy hump day.
