I’ve spent the last year working unhappily as a consultant.  It was not a job I really liked.  I took it for the money.

When I was hired I was told I’d be busy as hell and I’d bill a lot and make big bonuses.

It didn’t turn out like that.

The company then responded last week by letting me go.

It’s been a whirlwind of a week as you can imagine. Losing a job, panicking over what I’ll do next, etc.

But the Lord works in mysterious ways.

I found a job doing defense work very similar to a job I previously had and loved.  I scheduled interviews right away.

That was the post I asked people to put good into the universe on my behalf.

I want to thank all of you who did.

I was offered the job and with great alacrity accepted it.

Long time readers know about the several months of unemployment I had following a layoff a few years ago and how much that broke me down at the time.

To have an offer for something that I love less than a week later, I believe is sign that someone up there was watching out for me.

Now I have to sell my house and move across country again.

I wanted to fill you in because I know it seems like as soon as we started with subscriptions I went and fucked off and didn’t do much.

For the last little bit my head has not been in the game .  I’ll improve a little bit but I know the move will be a giant time suck when it comes.

I love writing and finding stuff to write about, I love engaging with those of you who comment.

I just wanted you to understand what’s been going on with me.

Miguel was always much better at giving you a heads up when his life was about to go upside down.

I just kind of get sucked into riptides and let you know where I was when I swim back to shore.

Thank you faithful readers, and a special thank you to subscribers, for bearing with me.  I’m excited for this new chapter of my life and I while bunch of new stores it will give me to tell.

Spread the love

  1. Congratulations on the new job!!!!! I know that is a load off your mind to already have somewhere to land.

    No worries here. You’re doing good!

  2. First, congrats on the new job!!
    Second, life happens, no worries. Not to go into details, the Boris household has been going through an extended transition similar in nature if not in detail. It’s exhausting pure and simple.
    Thank you so much, especially in light of your circumstances, for the work you put in for our community. You guys make a difference.

  3. I must have missed the good joo joo post, but congrats either way!

    And hokh cow, moving again, I can’t even imagine. I swore it off after one time if it can be avoided lol.

Only one rule: Don't be a dick.
