I received a text from Aminta at Triumph about ME positions in Macomb, MI. I looked at the job at thier site and the work looks good. Problems are:
- I need to give three months’ notice at the apartment complex before I leave.
- It is in Macomb, MI 40mi north of Detroit meaning it is COLD!
- I don’t know much about the area, but I didn’t know much about this area before I got here.
- This goes along with number three, but it must be mentioned, I will need transportation to and from work and if there are no cabs then it will be a bust.
I hope this works out in every way. I will help so much. In every way I mean, location, start date and transportation. Weather, well there isn’t much I can do about that.
Start praying and wish me luck.
I have a text this morning that says she is sorry, but she needs 500.00 ASAP, something suddenly came up and don’t ask what. Well, I don’t have 500.00 extra hanging around and would not give it with no questions asked if I did. That is the kind of money I will need soon just to live. I’m quite certain she will just give the money to Andy anyway and that is not going to happen.
I spent most of the morning trying to finish the unemployment process. I takes some time and I’m still not sure if I finished it all. I was to register and then go into my profile and finish that up. I did everything necessary, but I will go back in today and make sure I have everything updated and starts some job searches. I have to do that twice a week and renew the application every week. I will also check the actual requirements, so I don’t mess up. I have never done this before.
Even though I am a Republican at heart I have been very upset with the way Trump handled the virus and his complete lack of social skills. I did see some references to ballot tampering that concerns me but….. I hope it is not true.
It has been two weeks since I was laid off and now, as soon and the election is over it will be time to start looking for jobs again.
I think I paid my rent yesterday but can’t really remember but I’m sure I did. I entered an amount in my spreadsheet.
Yes, as of last Tuesday 8-20-2020 I no longer have a job. I’ll be taking a week or so off and then start diligently looking for a new job. Preferably around here but if I must contract out of state I will.
My nerves really started getting to me and I was extremely sick to my stomach for a few days but that has passed and I need to keep my attitude positive.
Well, as of this writing, tomorrow will me my last day at work (layoff happened). It was a fun ride, but I was completely screwed by people not actually knowing what they were doing so I will not blame them.
On to new things. Savings, severance, unemployment and a withdraw from 401K should tide me over for the holidays and then due diligence in finding a new position here in Tulsa hopefully.
My boss told my last Thursday not to worry. With that in mind when I was sent an invite to a meeting with HR for an exit meeting, I declined the meeting. HR did not like that so the next day I went ahead and accepted the meeting. Keep fingers and toes crossed and pray, pray, pray.
I now weigh 45lbs more than I did at the lowest weight at the doctors. New fasting program to start, three days of meals at dinner time and four days of fasting.
Might as well start the countdown till I’m done at this company. They picked a screwed up time. Companies in the aerospace industry do not hire at that time until sometime in February.
I must lose weight. Angie told me yesterday that she has lost weight and is now at 152 pounds. She calls herself fat and I’m over 110 pounds heavier than her, that is embarrassing.
Angie had surgery on her knee last Wednesday and has to stay off if it for the next week. No work, driving etc..
