With my computer and room belongings packed away, I needed a proper workstation to work on while the house was being built. So I’m here with my mom’s computer for now; a good amount of the accessories were parts from my old Alienware rig, or gaming things I did buy her to soup up her PC (like the Death Adder Chroma mouse). She still could use a better graphics card, so I’ll have to fix that for her one day when I get back on my feet.

Still trying to put this evening into words. I won’t bore you with a forever long story, but I was called into the office today, and was given a choice; be let go or take part-time pay. Totally a left-field curveball. I told them part time, took my check and drove home.

So it looks like I’ll need to be looking for another job now. I’m pretty sure the part time thing is just a step into laying me off in the future.

The worst part? I’m single AND going without work. Way to go, Valentine’s Day weekend.
