I know others who have been laid off recently and are not in good financial shape and they have kids and other obligations. So I am thankful about that I am good.
I will miss my friends from work. Yes, I actually had friends at work. But now I can spend more time with my friends from all over the world. I had been neglecting them these past 3 years.
As a Social Media person, it is bad when your Klout score, Alexa ranking, Facebook likes etc. go down and they have been pretty low since I had no time. My blog traffic started sucking and my blogs were being neglected.
Good news for the handful of people who actually read this blog. I will be writing more. I, of course, will be looking for work even though I voted for Obama. (more sarcasm) But we'll see what comes up. I am always up for a new adventure. Or maybe it's finally time to dust off the book I have always been meaning to write.
I am of the philosophy that everything happens for a reason. So I will just sit back and wait to see what the old universe has in mind for me. I can get all philosophical and say things like when a door closes, a window opens and you jump out. (Wait, that's not the saying.) But I won't.
I will just go with the flow. The good thing is finally my house will be clean. Our eating habits will improve and I can start watching Buffy the Vampire Slayer every morning and Judge Judy in the afternoon.
