Jobless

Well, For the second time within a years span, I find myself with the daunting task of finding new employment, as I was laid off from my job yesterday along with other dear friends. Scary as that is, the most frightening part is wondering how in the world I am going to stay afloat in the meantime. I was barely squeaking by as it was, with a steady income! Looking around at the lack of jobs in my field at the moment also gives me heart palpitations. Will I have to forget about my skills and just become a waitress to pay the bills?

I find solace in knowing that I have people in my life who love me...that's what matters most in life anyway, right? And I find hope in believing that everything happens for a reason and that when bad things happen, something better is usually waiting just around the corner!

So, here's to new beginnings!

I was laid off last year so I know all the feeling that come with it. You're so talented though so I know you'll do great. :)

Good Luck!
