I lost my job last week.

And before you assume it was pandemic-related and financially motivated, it wasn’t. The specific reasons given and circumstances that led to this unfortunate (fortunate?) event aren’t important. Just know that after 9.5 years with this company IT HURT.

So now I have an opportunity here with this tiny little slice of the internet. When work was awful I would say “I wish I could just blog for a living” like so many others I have followed and been influenced by over the years.
