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.
