As I am updating this on my phone, please forgive me any typos and formatting errors.
After 17 hours on the road, I am finally home.
Looking over my mail, I see a thin envelope from my employer.
It was a letter of separation.
For several months now, I’ve been half-expecting this. You see, I was cut from their rolls for not making my hours this quarter.
I shouldn’t be surprised. My employer had been trying to phase out their seasonal positions in favor of setting standards for part-time and full-time employees.
In a way, this situation was a long time in coming.
But that’s over now, and looking on the upside, this leaves room for other work that I could be doing.
So it’s not all bad.
