Today I was let go from my job. That is not a new thing to me personally. It is not a new thing in the country right now given corona virus. In fact Corona virus is the reason why my job and I are parting company. That’s what my regional supervisor told me in a video call a few minutes ago.
So what happens now? First off I’m gathering my stuff and I’m going home early.
After that I am going to play the waiting game with the rest of the record number of unemployed folks. We are all waiting until the government assistance program that is being run through the states unemployment insurance is up and running. That will be (hopefully) some time next week.
After that I will apply for benefits.
After I will wait until I’m declared eligible for benefits.
After that I will wait for the checks to come.
After that I will wait until my job comes back (if it does come back).
If my job doesn’t come back, I will start looking for a new one sometime in June.
In the meantime, what will I do with all my time? No idea now. I’m just sad.
