As of yesterday, I am officially unemployed. It is a strange land and although I was laid off once before, I had a new job waiting for me that time. This time, no shiny new job waiting around the corner.
I found out mid-October that my position was being eliminated and after the initial shock and days of balling up in the fetal position, I've had some time to adjust.
I am working on a new plan for what I'm calling Act III of my work life, but after 28 years in the satellite, distance learning and video production world, envisioning myself as anything else is taking a bit of effort. But I am determined to move forward.
Wish me luck.
