Friday Feelings


Well, I found out today that my job (currently on a contract) will be ending at the end of this month. It's been a weird ride. My company announced last November that we were starting lay offs and that the company would be closing at the end of 2017. I was one of the lucky few who was able to stay on until the very end. So, January 4th of this year, I get a call and they ask me to come back. Things weren't as over as they thought, so they needed help finishing up. It was most likely going to be a couple months. Well, here I am 8 months later, still here, but only for a couple more weeks.

I have been looking for a job, but not as much as I probably should've. I mean, the contract rate I was being paid was really good, more than I was making before. Of course I knew it could end, but they kept pushing out the end date. None of the jobs I've applied for have amounted to me getting a job so far, so I'm a little worried. I'll get unemployment, which will help until the end of the year at least.

Anyway, that's the story to the moment. I don't know how I feel today, knowing that it's coming to an end. On one hand I'm glad, because it's been really boring. There hasn't been much to do for quite a while now. But, I'm also scared. Starting a new job, meeting new people, is all a little daunting. Also, that's putting the cart before the horse as I have to actually get a job first.

It's all just a little scary. Part of me knows that it'll work out; it always does. I'll end up somewhere and things will probably be okay. I'm just nervous, I guess. And a little bit anxious.

Anyway, that's where I'm at today.

the good thing too is that your getting income while looking for another job. Try temp agency's too...they often have deals with potential employers to try people out on a temporary basis to see how they will work out, and often that can work into a full time job.
