Whoa.

So......my boss just called and informed me that I am part of today's round of layoffs. I'm still stunned.

When she first told me, I swear that my ear metaphysically clogged up and all words turned to noise. I pretended that her cell phone was cutting out, so she called me back on the landline and retold me the news, then gave me the details. I'm going in to the office later to pick up the severance package and gather my few personal belongings. The upside is that I'm paid through the end of the month, plus all my PTO time (which my 'bank' was just refilled on the first of the year, so its nearly a month's pay), plus I think an additional 8 weeks of pay. And I'm eligible for unemployment, even as a part-timer. So I'm not completely screwed. But currently shell-shocked and trying not to freak out about what's going to happen after those 3 months have passed.

Whoa.

I've never been terminated/fired/laid off before.
