If you read the minutiae of my life on Facebook or, like, talk to me in real life you’ve heard the news: I was laid off. This wasn’t a huge shock given the state budget, and I had a bit of warning. It’s been a crazy week wrapping things up but I am officially done. So, uh, what exactly do I do now? Maybe beat the shit out of a fax machine with a bat. PC LOAD LETTER, indeed.
Anyway, I am actually feeling good about the transition. I have some leads and interviews lined up, and am not in danger of living in a van down by the river any time soon. Things are going to be OK.
It was an interesting time there and I will forever be grateful that the opportunity arose at a time when my life was in a state of chaos and uncertainty. Getting this job helped me settle back into life in California, introduced me to wonderful people, and gave me a purpose.
Damn, I’m going to miss seeing random fire academy cadets around campus.
