I lost my job yesterday. Sadly when the economy is bad, people don't travel to foreign countries. It's not as if I didn't see that one coming -- in fact my life has been pretty much obsessed with watching economic news since January. Still it's never a good feeling.
The sad thing is I really loved my job and perhaps saddest of all, I completely understand what happened, why it happened to me and quite a few other people at the company too. It doesn't exactly make it easier to take. So amidst job-searching, I will be around if anybody wants to get together and cheer me up.
