Hi guys! Are you really stoked it’s Friday?
I have some news, which isn’t great news, but it’s still news so I’m going to throw it out there anyways…
I was fired last Thursday.
I wrote an email to a man I’d been corresponding with on a potential project for the gallery. I used the phrase “please contact me with any questions” and I was fired because I didn’t put “us“. I’m not a team player. Well, that’s what they said.
I’ve been a little rattled. I’ve never been fired before.
I totally get how getting fired is a complete life ruiner and why it completely messes people up. I’d only worked there for 10 days. I can’t imagine if I’d been there for years and had really delved in.
I applied to a couple jobs a few days ago. They weren’t jobs I really really wanted and I think I really half trashed my cover letters. I just applied to- sort of break the ice. I’ve felt really un-confident about applying again and looking at job listings. I thought maybe just applying a few times would soften the blow each time I try and sift through craigslist jobs.
I’ve cooked a few really tasty recipes like Chicken Marsala, adult fried chicken, and an indian curry. But I haven’t felt like blogging or taking photos. I really love doing it normally but it does make the whole cooking process a little more involved. “Involved” or “effort filled” just really isn’t on the agenda these days.
I spent a few days just watching TV. The Damages show on Netflix is AWESOME and takes 100% of your brain power to watch. Which is good because I keep playing the whole job thing over and over in my head trying to make sense of it. None of it makes sense.
I’ve drank (about) 4 bottles of Cupcake Wine since the incident. Which I find complete adequate because adults can drink wine if they want. I want!!
So there you have it… FIRED!
