Heh, funny story. Got laid off today, not long after my first post this morning. It was a big surprise. Happy Friday! Another victim of the Second Great Depression.
One of my first reactions was: "Well, this should help my Gamer ADD!" Because 1) I won't be spending any more cash for a while on frivilous gaming purchases and 2) I'll need to spend a lot of time looking for a new job rather than looking through my existing gaming materials/ preparing for game sessions. Bottom line: being downsized has made me think that I should appreciate the game materials I have and the actual gaming I am doing, rather than taking the eternal "grass is always greener" approach to RPGs that I've been doing.
Here's to the next real life "adventure" for yours truly! As someone who's made his living as a writer (I prefer the term "wordsmith" actually ;-) I'm taking up my pen/sword and paper/shield and heading off into the job hunt/dungeon. Wish me luck!
