Another one bites the dust.

Today is my first day of unemployment, since, well...ever! I went from high school to college, only quitting my job when I was about to leave for Chapel Hill. I maintained the same job as an office assistant from my sophomore year until I graduated. I interned, and the internship evolved into a job. I was an intern on a Friday, graduated on a Sunday and was an employee of Algonquin Books by the following Monday morning. I went from Algonquin directly to my last job, where I worked for about two years, until I got laid off yesterday.

Needless to say, I am at a turning point. My world has been flipped, in almost every way, these past few months. And I don't think it's an accident. I'm going to freak out a little bit and then dust myself off and start to search--for new opportunities, experiences and everything else life has to offer, and be open to the people and places that come into my path. I'm so thankful for everything I've learned so far, and all the people I've met along the way. I'm scared but also excited for what comes along.

Stay tuned. I'll let you know what happens.

Thanks guys...I'm watching both of you, and I'm excited to see what great things happen to you as well!

Wow. I'm sorry Sabrina. I'm glad you're putting a positive spin on this, because I know I wouldn't be able to.

I don't know that I'll be of much help in your industry, but let me know if you need anything.

I am a firm believer that things happen for a reason. While unemployment is definitely not an ideal situation, I'm certain this will help lead you to new and wonderful opportunities. You are so talented in so many different areas that I'm sure you won't have any problem finding something in the near future.
Good luck, keep us posted, and you always have a place to stay in San Diego (starting in a few months).
