          • Hey Guys! Great news! No longer working for BlackBerry. So the story essentially goes that I got laid off yesterday. I know to a lot that sounds like a shitty deal but the way that I look at it is that I was having a hard time dealing with losses there and no it's no longer my problem!

            Feeling good and staying paleo! God bless! You guys will be hearing from me more now that I have been relieved of my problem.

                    • Ecks, sorry to hear about the lay off. My DH works in high tech and lay offs have been an issue for him during this recession. Best of luck with the job search.

                      • Hey, Ecks, does that mean you get severance? My brother and his wife were planning on quitting a company they were unhappy with (already had another job lined up) and then they got fired, which was the best thing that could have happened to them.

                        Anyway, glad to hear you're out from under all that stress.

                            Nice!! On vacay then laid off, sounds great, ahaha... But seriously, I've never really been in your position as I've been self-employed my entire adult life, since junior year of uni. But, it sounds like you have the right attitude, elation, & also you now have some breathing room, with severance, where you can dream again, & then can strategize on what you really want to do with your professional life... Congrats on this grand opportunity man! Enjoying your journal btw...

Don't know what day or what, but I hope you're still in for sometime at the end of next week/weekend. I'll msg you when I got details!

                              • Hey Ecks, so glad you're shot of a job that was wearing away on you! Glad you got the severance and trust that you will be able to find a job soon. I like the idea of rethinking what you want to do and dream a little... Will be praying for the right way to open up in front of you - something that will fuel the Grok in you and use the skills you already have... so glad that you are feeling positive about this!
