personal -- I just got laid off
Not fun news.
They downsized my department and a lot of folks were let go. I was the top level within my team so I'm out too. I have 2 more weeks of work, then 10 weeks of severance plus my bonus. So that gives me some time. Truth is I've been really unhappy there for a while and need something much more creative, so I'm trying to be positive and see this as a much-needed kick in the a** to find something more interesting.
One of the other sites already wants me to do some freelance writing for them, which is nice.
But I'm in a bit of shock. Just found out this afternoon.
I keep joking that it's just because they were afraid I'd finally win the bake-off this year.
