A few years ago if you had told me that I would lose not one, but TWO jobs in the space of seven months, both due to contracts not getting renewed, I would have probably laughed at you. NO ONE has that kind of bad luck. And then of course we had all our drama with our Ontario house, our oldest, Shawn’s heart and our second oldest moving our and losing our oldest dog and that all happened in the span of oh…two and a half months, so now I’m almost belligerent about bad news. Bring it. You can’t break me, man!
So, I am out of work again because my contract was not able to be renewed. So what. I have learned some really awesome things about people in business out here. They’re pretty rad. They’re easy to talk to and I’m a good networker so we’ll just see what happens from here.
Besides, I’m not afraid to start again. It seems like reinventing the wheel is all we’ve done over here since August, so what’s another re-write? It’s like a fun challenge. I’m actually looking forward to finding out what’s next.
One of the things that is next? Writing. I am making myself commit to more writing time. I will finish Summer Poppies before this coming summer. Deal? Deal.
In the meantime, I slept in today just for the sheer fun of it (which meant I was fully awake at 8:15, but that still counts, I stayed in my room until 10:30), I talked to my wicked awesome sister on the phone, I watched a bunch of videos online and now I’m setting up my new laptop.
Life. It’s not so bad, if you learn to roll with the punches and try to find the humour and the lighter side of every situation. Except heart attacks. They suck. Try to avoid those. Otherwise, chins up, tits out, and keep on smiling!!
