Augh! This was not a good year to graduate. I just heard that RightNow Tech. laid off half of my friends. Tim: buddy, hang tough. Elliot: don’t give up, at least you still have the model. One of them probably would have been me, had I stayed there. The madness is not just limited to Montana; in eight more days, Josh finds out if Boeing still wants him for the rest of the year. If no pink slip shows up, he’s in the clear for a month or so, and then he’ll roll the dice again. Anyone who says America is a land of opportunity is wrong, baby, wrong!
To all my friends that are facing tough life changes (especially the involuntary kind): hang in there! Stay positive, be confident despite your discouragement, and have faith. All things work for good (I really do believe that, and I’ve been unemployed for 5 months).
What? It’s October already? Who let that happen?
Still no job, but I’m getting really close… In other news, I went sailing this weekend with Annie, Jason, Julia, Jed and Angelique. It was totally sweet; cutting silently through the waters of Lake Washington, watching the sun sink over the Seattle skyline and the moon rise above Mt. Rainier. Yes, I have pictures; they’ll be up soon. Maybe next time we’ll go through the locks and cruise the Sound. If nothing else, at least now Annie and I know what a “jig” is.
