Today is the one week anniversary of losing my job. I had held my position for over five years, but in the end I was deemed unnecessary to the continuation of the greater good. I’ve been deemed unnecessary a few times in my life, and it doesn’t get any easier. I’m sure I’ve got a few more coming, and I’m not looking forward to them.
It was a good job, and I was decent at it. What I will miss most are my co-workers. They are great people. We shared a lot of laughs and we built some really great stuff together. I will miss working with them. I will miss hearing their voices on our daily calls. Some of them survived the purge. Some of them were deemed unnecessary along with me. But I will always consider all of them important to my happiness.
