I did something today that I told myself I never would — I started this blog. I always thought of a personal blog as a place for Type A personalities to spout off about themselves because everyone around them finally told them to shut the fuck up. After reading a few I see they can be a personal spot to reflect, and if by chance someone is bored enough to come across it, something to relate to. So here I go, and on to the point.
Last thursday I was laid-off. I was an art director for a large television media company and until a recent re-org (god I hate that word) I loved my job. This blog is not about self-pity or whining, but more of a journey to the next thing, and even more so, a journal of random occurrences along the way. As with most working people, I am not used to having a lot of time, so already I have started to pay closer attention to things I usually ignore — like the people who shop at the mall at 10 a.m. on a Wednesday morning.
