What am I going to be when I grow up..

on May 21, 2008 @ 12:04 am

I don't know what do do...I got laid off today. My boss called me in and said business is suffering and me and seven other people are being let go.
It is suppose to be a temp lay off, but I am unsure that my job will be available in the short months ahead. I'm happy cause its summer, but I'm still in shock.
I'm 27 and not ready for kids and not sure what to do. I'm realy into health, nutrition,beauty and this may be my chance to get into something I really enjoy.
I have no post-secondary and don't want to be in school (at all ior at least not for a long time) My husband has a good job, but it will feel yucky not being able to contribute.

Great opportunity! on May 21, 2008 @ 06:48 am

First off, so sorry to hear you were laid off! I know you must feel a lot of stress right now but this could actually be a good thing. :) You say your husband has a good job so this is a perfect time to pursue something you really want to do. Take a month or two to really research your dream career and then figure out what steps you need to take to get there. Being jobless can be surprisingly freeing and a great chance to rediscover your creativity. I should know. I quit my old job with no backup 4 years ago (pretty much to this date!) and it was terrifying and exhilarating at the same time. I figured out what I needed to do, made a 4 year plan and this April I just completed that plan. Now I'm on to the next.

Oh, and not working through the summer can actually be a glorious thing! Hee!

Listen to the MC. She said it all perfectly! Embrace this unfortunate circumstance and turn it into a positive. Good luck :-)

Stick with what you like! on Jun 07, 2008 @ 01:39 pm

Hey Tiffani! Hope everything works out for the best. I also definitely think you should find something you like in the time that you have off. I guess since I havent experienced that part yet its pretty easy for me to say, but I know so many people who have forgotten that one important thing they constantly drill in our heads these days.

lol goodluck with your search Hunter, Im currently doing coop right now! Its pretty awesome.
