Thank you to everyone for kind words and thoughts about my layoff yesterday. It still hasn't 100% sunk in honestly, even though my brain is also going a little bit into overdrive. I'm not allowing myself to do anything concrete until Monday, and I'm even waiting until next week to go to the unemployment offices to file my claim (since I don't need to frontload my cash so desperately). The other piece I realized last night is that because I'm hourly, not salaried, my last paycheck on the 30th which would normally be paying me for the hours on the 1st through the 15th, will be my hours for the 1st through the 30th. Woo-hoo! I'm finally getting payback for having to work the first month with no pay. I have some phone calls to make, to student loan and a credit card I can put on hold, and some other fiscal restructuring/tightening type things. I'm so lucky though, really, not just because of the generous severance package, but for having a supportive partner who not only has me on her health insurance already but also is ready to have all the money talks about how we will sustain ourselves just fine. I also have tons of friends who have been through this and are going through this, and others who are offering help, which whenever I figure out what help I actually need, I'm glad to know they are there. I do kinda wish I had one more night at work to do lots of printing and copying for free, but hey, I'll live.

So, yeah. I got ideas. There are lots of possibilities for this time and change, and it seems like others have confidence in my ability to capitalize on them, possibly more so than I believe myself capable, so I'll just ignore those internal self-critic voices and trust y'all know what you're talking about. But for today, I'm just going to workout at the gym and figure out what movie to see and review, since the one I pitched/wanted isn't opening here. Oh isht, I just saw and ad that Mickey Rourke is showing up on The View today. Yeah, I might need to stick around for that.
