Hey all, just wanted to check in really quick to thank you all for the well wishes and to give you a status update. I have a job offer on the table, and I am crossing my fingers that another one is on the horizon! I feel really good about myself at the moment, needless to say. I was determined not to become one of the many horror stories of this Second Great Depression.
I've also managed to land a pretty good freelance gig, as well. Getting laid off was one of the best things that could have happened to me at this moment in my life! I've been fortunate enough to make my living with words. I've been working in the old "word mine" all my life, and I don't intend to stop until they pry the keyboard from my cold, dead hands! ;-)
Anyway, to anyone out there that finds themselves unemployed or underemployed, I for one think there is hope. Just keep your spirits up, have faith, work hard, and network! Both of my interviews last week came from getting my resume to the right people. Things aren't as grim as they might at first appear...at least, I think so. If my experiences over the recent weeks is any indication, things are looking up.
Now, I am hoping that my good job-finding progress heralds a return to gaming in the near future! As soon as I get into a new job, I'll return with full gusto to the table-top, rest assured!
Thanks again, hang in there, and as always happy gaming!
