Keep 'em coming, bartenders; I'm drowning my sorrows. Oh, and I have a tab, right?

Major personal WTFriday, but I'm just coming out of the numbness stage to post about it.

I lost my job on Friday. My cushy, awesome, I've had for 7 years, straight out of college, never done anything else in the big bad Real World, suited me and my not-a-morning-person, but am a family person divinely job. Things just dried up and there's been no work for a while now and "no reflection on me" but they can't just keep floating and draining their reserves indefinitely.

As of next Friday I will not have income or insurance.

WTF am I going to do now?

I am definitely looking forward to Pen's WS to remind myself of the little things that keep me going. Of course, I counted gainful employment among them. *sigh.

6 tips left at the bar:

Here, let me just keep pouring... and pouring... and then pouring some more. You definitely have a tab.

You don't need a tab. Drinks are on the house.

Andi- where are you located and what do you do/ Might not be a bad idea to put it out here so we can help if possible..........

Andi said...

Thanks, ladies.

BJ - I live in Woodstock, GA (northwest of Atlanta). I graduated with a Business Marketing degree and have been working for a Marketing Research company for the past 7 years. I'd love something in Communication/Marketing near Woodstock, but fully expect I'll be commuting into the Big City. Thanks!

Oh no! I will keep my ears open and see if there's anything I hear that comes up with my contacts in the Atlanta area. Hang in there and we're here for you!!!

Andi-when one door closes another door always opens: it just might be hell in the hallway for awhile.

I know good things will come your way.
