So...as I try to think of other things that might define 2010 for me like: turning 40, celebrating 15 years with my partner, going on a Mediterranean cruise and seeing some pretty amazing ancient shit. I keep getting stuck on the damn getting laid off thing as the that thing that will define this year for me. Sucks to lose your job, but really sucks for it to define a year filled with some really kick ass stuff. So there it is then, that defines this year…damnit. I’ve worked since I was 13 including working my way through college and paying all that off. I’ve always been a really hard worker…and particularly good at the things I do. So now I find myself at 40 without a job and a partner saying “for Christ’s sake can’t you find something to do. I don’t know write a blog or something…anything just stop talking during VH1’s JumpStart.” So here it is, my first blog and I’m hula hooping while I’m typing this because did I mention I’m really good at multi-tasking? Seriously who gets rid of an employee who can take notes in a meeting while sleeping?
