Noah Taylor in 'Flirting'

Well. Alright then.

I've been laid off. We got a fat final check with an extra week on it. It's been post-dated to tomorrow so I can't cash it yet. I knew something was coming. And I was accurately prescient about the layoff.

I feel bad for my supervisor. She just bought a house. She was so upset. A lot of folks were crying. I was numb. I felt it coming. I guess I don't have to worry about being late to work tomorrow because of my classes. There is no work tomorrow. Wow. I'm multitasking and filling out my unemployment online. I suppose at this point I'll qualify for food stamps as I won't be making 'too much'. I'll have to do that Friday. Tonight, I have to finish reading and homework. Two papers due tomorrow.

I also have to do my run. I do some nice thinking on my run, so I'm hoping to get that in after the reading and before writing the paper. I don't have a printer. I'll print them at school before class tomorrow.

Wow. I don't even know what to make of it all. I'll look for a gig, but I don't know what will fit around my schedule now. We'll see. And unemployment will also leave a lot of time to study for the Praxis, Praxis II and the OR skills tests that I'll need to have done by February. I wonder if I'll be able to have the fees waived as I'm not working right now. I have to keep my head in the game and look forward.
