I did not win, so its back to the fucking job search thing. I was laid off with 12 others unexpected on my 1 year anniversary (March 30th). It was a coincidence that the pay period ended on that day as well and that was the day the lay offs occurred.
But I am a fighting irishman (not into real fighting, just fighting for what I want/deserve and what is mine) and so I have been on 2 interviews last week and hopefully will hear back on Tuesday about the one I really want. It's researching missing information on criminal background checks. :)
My old job gave me a HUGE severance package. One month of pay. Along with all my vacation I had banked and the hours worked. So I bought my airfare for Bergen, Norway for Hole in the Sky festival. Now I have to figure out what to say to my new employer if I do get a job.
I have airfare, hotel and tickets for Maryland Deathfest next month. Fly out at 11:45pm on may 26th (my birthday) and so will need Thursday and Friday off. Monday is Memorial day (a holiday). And then at the end of August, its Norway for a week. I am just going to have to be honest with them and say I had pre arranged/purchased commitments for a long time now.
One good thing about not working tomorrow is that I am going to Amon Amarth/Eluveitie/Holy Grail tonight with a friend who is a fellow journalist. He is shooting the show from the photo pit and interviewing Eluveitie and I am going to video the interview. But I feel like drinking tonight,so hopefully the video will be steady and not shaky. hahahaahah
