Rollercoaster

I got fired today.

Economy yadda yadda, industry-wide layoffs blah blah blah, "nothing to do with your performance" etc etc. Still sucks. Especially since, oh yeah, did I mention I support a family of three with my salary?

So yeah, I'm experiencing a bit of emotional whiplash right now. I did not know it was possible to experience this range of highs and lows in 24 hours.

Still processing. More later.

Talk about gobsmacked!

And I hate it when employers use "the economy" card. It's failure to think progressively.
