Ain’t No Sunshine When He’s Gone

Just a few hours ago I found out an ex-employee who had taken the buyout a few months back had won the lottery. That’s $38 million after taxes.

Then just a few hours later, I found out that one of my most favorite-tist people in the world and my absolute favorite-tist co worker ever, got laid off. His last day is January 8th. I am an absolute mess, I am devastated, and it’s pretty safe to say I’m taking it harder than he is.

He was my only joy at work and is one of the only reasons I’m still here. He’s such a sweet, caring, and hilarious person. I honestly don’t know how I’m going to survive without him. Although we’ll continue to be friends and frequent happy hours on Castro, things just won’t be the same around here. And honestly, I wish it had been me instead. I’m the one that’s been wanting to quit for the past year.

I hope this reminds everyone of how unpredictable life can be. You can be given something, and have something or someone taken away from u. Just. Like. That. Today I am reminded of WHY I have to make this writing thing work. It’s kinda the only thing I got that I’m naturally good at. It has to work. It will work. Today, I am reminded to be grateful and appreciate those around u … even if they won’t shut up sometimes and distract u from doing ur work lol *ahem*.

It’s funny how things happen. And I really hate that saying that “everything happens for a reason.” So instead I’ll say, “In the end, everything will be ok. If it’s not ok, then it’s not the end.”

I sure hope so.
