WelcomeWelcome to my (almost) unemployed life. Thanks to Steve Safran for help picking a name. (And thank you Esther and Chaim for some really fun suggestions).
As of 5pm tomorrow, June 30th, I will be unemployed for the first time since that awkward period following my college graduation in 2001. Despite a fair severance package, I'm scared. Yet I feel as though I have to put up a strong front. I spend a lot of time saying things like "Well, now I can finally take a vacation" or "This will be a great opportunity for me to make a career transition" or "I'll take some classes and maybe get a graduate degree". And I do mean them, just not 100%. Nothing is scarier than the unknown, and unemployment in today's world of outsourcing and downsizing is an ultimate unknown.
The Magic of TechnologySo come along with me on my journey to the land of the slackers! (Just remember, I'm not there by choice).
