I've been missing for the past few days & I haven't been keeping up with the other blogs. I haven't really been leaving comments or replying either. Part of the reason for this is because I've been feeling a little down & also because so much has been going on right now with my parents who are about to be laid off from work. I know we will cope with it somehow but the next few years are def going to be a little tough & it's going to take a lot of getting used to, especially when it comes to how our finances are going to be handled.
I've always heard bout people getting laid off, being out of work for months & months, but it's so different when you actually go through it yourself. My parents' company has never laid off any of it's employees & they did it this time. Also, every company that I hear about is outsourcing. All this just makes me realize how important it is to have a backup plan, savings, or anything you can rely on to get you through the tough period. But mostly, how important it is to network & keep in touch with people because you never know when someone might be able to help you out, hook you up with a job referral, or tip you with some important information.
Anyway, I miss blogging & just wanted to give a quick update as to where I've been. I want to update much more than I have been updating recently, but with so much going on right now & about a gazillion thoughts going through my mind, it's best that I don't make any promises.
Until next time.
