***After the Strike***

Friday I joined several of my ex-co-workers for lunch. The good news is that most had found jobs or continued to interview. The bad news were most would be either leaving Orange County (San Diego was the most popular destination) or the state. Neither was optimal for anyone. I told my story about the long-term, high-paying, temp position and everyone expressed sympathy.

Someone asked if anyone would be attending our (former) employer's company picnic. No one was going as you can imagine.

Afterwards I sequestered myself at the coffeeshop and tried to work on my works-in-progress (WIPs) but with little results. I was more rattled by losing the job opp than I thought.

So, while chatting over at Forward Motion, I looked for more job opps on-line. I didn't apply to any of them (it was Friday and I know, from experience, that no one would be lookin' at resumes) but noted them for next week.

I joined my friends in the evening in Long Beach until my spouse returned home.

NOTE: Finished the book, Dragon Precinct, in the afternoon.

  • Ah, think about small victories for a while. Applications then interviews then...

  • I finally caught up on your blog. I know it sucks to have to do that job hunting thing and I know how it feels to have your body remind you that you're getting older. but there'll be better days. better days, my friend. hugs!
