Light At The End Of The Tunnel

January 22nd, 2010

There is an offer letter on the way and this 9 Month, 3 week long adventure in unemployment will be coming to a close. It’s an interesting company and a good group of people so I’m pretty psyched up about it. Of course I’m also apprehensive as hell- that’s just how I always am with big changes like this. It’ll pass by the end of the first day at the new job, and the relief I feel at just knowing I’ll soon be earning my pay instead of collecting unemployment far, far outweighs anything else.

Strangely enough it wasn’t like that when I was laid off. Instead there was a 5 second bout of “You said what?” followed by a sudden sensation of relief, mostly because I had seen it coming and was glad to get it over with. It wasn’t until October ended and I realized I’d probably be out of work at least the remainder of the year that I started stressing out over it in a big way. Until then I was a guy between jobs. After October I felt unemployed… but not anymore.
