Let’s recap what’s been going on in the last month:
History was made! Barack Obama was elected President of the United States! I am very optimistic that this will lead to a brighter future in the long run.
I was laid off. The economic downturn and so on led to yet another round of cutbacks at my old company. Though it stinks to experience this I am comforted by the knowledge that it wasn’t about me or my performance: just another blind, pointless swing of the layoff axe.
The economy continued to tank. No surprise there.
I’m working on weight loss (again). We’ll see how that goes.
