So that’s it. As of Thursday, May 22, 2008, I am jobless.
I packed up my desk, said my goodbyes, applied for unemployment and picked up my check. To my fellow colleagues who were laid off, “see you in the job market” and too my still-employed colleagues, “good luck.”
One thing though that I want to add….which only adds to the irony was that two weeks before I was laid off, I moved into my boss’ office (i.e. I was sharing an office with her, not taking over her office). This was after a six-month overdue promise to move me that began when I first started. Anyhow, it was nice while it lasted. Being the sentimental dork that I am, I couldn’t help be take a picture.
