Not Surprised....

Last night I slept like shit. I mean it was to be expected due to the news I received yesterday, but it still sucked ass. I hate not sleeping! Looking at the clock, doing the math in your head thinking "if I fall asleep now, I'll get 3 hrs of sleep" Mad as hell because I JUST WANT TO SLEEP! I went to bed at 11:30, which was too late anyways because I had to be to work at 7 today to do obits. Which PS, has got me thinking, If I BUST MY ASS, work still closes in July, if I slack, I get fired (probably, maybe not at this point) so my goal, DO enough to not get fired. I'm so pissed off, not at the News, but just at the situation, Ive been there 7 years, the better part of my adult life, w/ NOTHING to show for it. Its frustrating, I mean I cant honestly say I planned on doing classified ads my whole life, but I could see myself here until retirement (which i could do at 55) so its just hard to plan for the future. I am above my current job, I know that, but no matter what I couldn't find a job to compete with free benefits, good ones too. Even when I was married, they were free. Now that I wont be having said benefits, I can start looking for an honest career. Ive already started to apply to places, and the website take over the Ann Arbor News, annarbor.com is hiring, so I decided I'd see what they were about, my GF did a FANTASTIC job of helping me through last night, she said to not look at this as bad, but to look at this as getting a chance at a new career, so that's what I'm going to do. Fortunately I have a lot of skills. I'm personable, creative, fun and I work hard. Come on work world, are you ready for Bobby G?

Maybe now is the time to go after that elusive use of your degree? I mean, why not, right?

You seem like a pretty damn resourceful individual Bobby. If anyone can pull out of a situation like this and end in a significantly better one, my money would be on you!

I hope you get things worked out. What a shitty thing to happen.

I'm right there with ya' BG. I've had my Psych degree for...SIX YEARS now and JUST got a full time job in my field in January. I worked part time in Psych but I was psyched to get full time and benefits...now...I may be in the unemployment line with you come summertime. As an added bonus for me, I have to keep my job until July 5th if I even want to collect unemployment (the 6 month rule). If I get canned before July 5th, I am SOL. A co-worker of mine and myself are thinking of opening a 24/7/365 weiner stand in Ann Arbor...lol.
