after 8 years with the same company, surviving i dont know how many cutbacks, they finally got me today. supposedly 38 other key people got cut too. perfect timing that i filed divorce about 30 days ago, and was in process of securing financing for buying a house to live in. so: 1) no house for me 2) still divorced and lonely fuck, i just now this moment realized what was keeping me going... was work. going there m-f has really been keeping my mind off the exwife (and step son), while weekends have been killer sitting here by myself. fuck fuckity fuck fuck. i just hope i can find something soon before the severance package (3 months) ends. ive already got an appointment with a headhunter on thursday. these people have called me like 3 times a year for the past 5 years, and ive always politely declined, that i was happy where i was. hopefully, they will still be able to come thru with something for me. wish me luck!
