I've made it a point to not listen to the news~.. >.< I'm sure to hear all about it tomorrow - *hoping friends and family are safe at home & abroad*
I've started to get a little less 'freaked' about my job situation. Such great timing, I realized that when my boss informed me of my job's elimination status, I was actually in extreme PMS mode (haha - see I never realize these things when they are happening, since my cycle is so irregular).. No wonder I felt like a frazzled nerve ending. When I started to tell coworkers about the situation, everybody thought I was 'pulling' their leg. I think because I had been there so long, people just didn't expect that my position would be one affected. I teased my boss that there was a time in the not so distant past, our dept. had to always work overtime - we worked thru our lunch, we never took breaks.. I used to take my mail home with me, and sort it while watching tv.
I went to the meeting about 'early buy-out' .. and my Supervisor called me into the office to tell me not to worry, and that they are hoping to reassign duties and keep me in the dept. It's still rather early to tell.
saw this on Mieko's lj.. The meaning of your name kyaa this is kinda creepin me out a bit:!
Your name of Helayne gives you a very idealistic but passive outlook on life. You desire culture and all the refinements of life but you are inclined to live in your dreams. Although you would like to do many things, procrastination undermines your accomplishment and success in life. You do not like to create issues and will do anything to avoid a conflict. Making decisions is difficult for you without the support and approval of others. This name gives you a very sensitive nature, making you feel much that you do not understand. Your feelings are easily hurt, at which times you are inclined to withdraw and become uncommunicative.
I should be asleep already. . .hrmm I had too much fun chatting for hours with DH! Ah Ri..wish you were chatting w/us too!
