I'm still standing!
I'm still standing. This month has been a bummer as far as work goes. I found out my contract wasn't going to be renewed. I asked early so I might have time to prepare if needed. Well I found out in the beginning of August that my contract wasn't being renewed. I sort of stewed for a few weeks and have been looking for a new job.
I'll be honest, the job is kind of tedious and the commute sucks but I prefer having a job. Although I do admit the last lull was kind of nice. So for all that I was bummed about losing my job, I also wanted to get it finished and move on.
Last Friday was supposed to be my last day but my supervisor didn't get my replacement in until this Monday so she had asked the previous Friday to stay an extra week. I really dreaded having to do this. Admittedly my replacement has been an ok guy but I still feel like I want to let go. New guy is set and just needs to get started.
But for all this, I'm still going strong and still fighting. Looking forward to having time to spend claying and devoting some time to my real work. Hell a job is for money and honestly, we can survive pretty well without my paycheck, especially with unemployment. It's time to move forward, cut through the muck and enjoy the good stuff.
