I found out yesterday that my position is being eliminated and that if I can't find a new job internally my last day will be May 2nd.  Ugh.

Could be a blessing in disguise. Trying to work and attend your first year of law school at the same time has a low success rate. If you're willing to go into debt, student loans can get you by your first year. In your second + years you can get a job as a law clerk that will dovetail with your studies. I even found part time legal work as a 1L, helping to sift through evidence for a huge criminal case.

Sorry to hear that man.  I mean, like a job or not, getting fired is never easy.  I hope it all works out okay for you.

Sorry to hear that.  I've definitely been down that road before numerous times.  Best of luck getting back on your feet.

I was in the process of buying a new car.  Nothing majorly wrong with mine, just felt it was time to get into something newer.  I had put down a deposit last week Saturday so that the dealer here in Iowa could go ahead and do a dealer trade with a Michigan dealer that pretty much had the 2017 Volt I wanted, right down to the color.  Then come Monday morning I found out about my upcoming job loss.  f**k.  At least they told me before I completed the purchase.  The dealer hadn't started the trade process yet so they didn't have to cancel anything, and they refunded my deposit.

Hopefully I can find something before too long, in time for me to get in to a Chevy Bolt when they come out later this year.

I was informed this evening that another group at work wants to speak to me tomorrow.  Hopefully I'll do well enough in the interview that they'll take me on and I can make it out to my 10th anniversary.

Well it sounds like I'll be staying with my current company a bit longer.  The group I was talking about Friday is in the process of bringing me on board now.

Great news... but maybe it's also a sign for you to look for a new job and leave on your terms :)

Not for a while though.  I want to get to my 10th anniversary at work.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
