After fifteen years in a variety of positions my road with my present company came to an abrupt end last night. So sorry Robin, we really respect you and what you do, your work has always been excellent and the quality top-notch, but we have to cut overhead and staffing and blah blah blah blah...
Yeah, bite me.
I've been with this company ever since grad school. They haven't always been good to me, but over the last few years I'd developed a somewhat unorthodox position that really suited me, one with conditions I doubt very much I'll be able to replicate anywhere else.
Time for some stock-taking as I figure out what I want to be now. I've got a few directions to pursue, time will tell.
Anyone looking for a telecommuting business and marketing writer/editor ? Or have an easy way to become an internet millionaire? Or perhaps a winning lottery ticket they don't happen to need?
Onwards and upwards. It will all work out, eventually.
In the meantime though it pretty much sucks. Big time.
