More Life Changes and More Unknown Future

Six weeks shy of my 9-year anniversary with an employer, I was laid off back in 2016. 4 1/2 months later, I began a new job.

Now, last week, again completely outta nowhere, I was called into my manager’s office where I was informed that I was being laid off, effective immediately.


It’s yet to set in overly much; immediate necessities have been set into motion and addressed.

Something’s different this time around; I can’t really put my finger on it.

It’s discouraging…maybe all the more because I was told it wasn’t something I myself had done or had not done. At least if I had done something, I’d have something to work on improving.

But I’m not putting stuff out here much beyond what I’ve already said.

Still, it’s a significant "life event," that I fear exemplifies "the new normal," where instead of one being able to just get a job, give their all and loyalty to one company, they’re just signing on for some temporary-yet-indeterminate time.

Much as too many comics have been: instead of going indefinitely, hundreds of issues in a run…now most comics only go so long before being put on hiatus and then renumbered as a new run.

  1. Oh man, I’m so sorry to hear this!

    Being laid off is always so confusing… when I was a temp, I compared it to the Strikeforce: Morituri comic… we all knew it was temporary… and it would end, but we didn’t know exactly when. Made the entire project very uncomfortable.

    I’m always here to talk if you need!

    • Following the reboot/renumber trend of comics…I think stuff in my life IS moving toward more of a maxi-series format, after a couple of long-running series.

  2. I know firsthand, being in that situation really sucks and I also know all too well what you mean when you say “blah.” It may take some time but don’t give up. Something will be around the corner.
