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.

I didn't even like the job, but yeah in this economy it kind of blows. And sucks. And why do we use such good terms when talking about something bad? Heh.

*hugs* At least you knew it was coming so have had a little time to prepare emotionally. Still, very scary stuff.

Yeah. A bit scary. I'll eventually see it for the opportunity it is. I guess. Ha, ha!

{{{lula_neith}}} I know it's scary (trust me, I know). You'll land somewhere good with that positive attitude of yours.

You got laid off too? XD Same here since June 30th, though our manager said me and my co-worker's positions were safe 2 weeks prior. Next thing I knew, the supervisor said we had a week/the rest of June left before getting chucked out. Oh well, I honestly thought I'd lose my job in 2 weeks, but ended up staying there for over 3 years XD

Hope things turn out well for you though! :O

Then you feel my pain. Heh. Seriously, I didn't even like the job anymore. Losing the classes sucks worse. I'm sure it'll work out eventually. Wishing you luck as well!

I am so sorry hon. I hope something opens up quick for you. Make sure you tell unemployment that you are in college. When I went through it, I qualified for a program considering I was in school.

I'm hoping to get back into classes next term. Tried to do the automatic claim online and on the phone. Their computers are down. I did the initial filing, so hopefully they have it up and running soon. And if not, they may make something retro since it wasn't my fault. =/

As to schooling: there's a program for displaced workers that may pay for next term. I'm not giving up yet.
