Well, it finally happened. I got laid off today. I think I’ve mentioned before that the company I work for has been in financial trouble for quite a while. The irony is that I’ve been with the company longer than anybody else, and I’m going to be the first to go.
It’s the right business choice, because it doesn’t do the company any good to have a full time marketing/design department if you don’t have any workers to do the work the marketing department attracts. But it still sort of sucks.
I’m a bit bummed, but trying to be optimistic. It could end up being the best thing that’s ever happened to me. I’ve got a couple of leads for freelance work, so hopefully, we won’t starve or anything.
Ultimately, I’ve got a couple of pieces of artwork in my portfolio that I wouldn’t have had were it not for the help of many of you offering information, tutorials, and your coding genius.
Sorry this is so long. I’m just trying to sort things out in my mind, you know?
