I think one of the most difficult things about being laid off, besides the impending unemployment, lack of paycheques, and uncertainty about the future, is having to work through your two weeks of notice.
Here in Newfoundland employers are required to give employees two weeks notice of lay off. What this means is that once you get your notice, you are entitled to two more weeks of pay. Sometimes employers expect you to work during this time, and other times, they waive the notice, pay you out, and send you on your merry way.
My employer expects me to work. And it sucks. Seriously, as if getting up early in the morning for work isn’t hard enough on a regular morning, take it from me, its eleventy billion times harder when your employment is coming to an end. Its hard to motivate yourself to do things to insure a positive future for a company that’s letting you go. I keep having to force myself to do more than the bare minimum.
This lack of motivation is starting to spill over into my ‘tude towards everything. Hence why this post is so damn depressing and unoriginal. But at least I posted something, right?
Without further ado, currently I’m…
Eating – Silver Hills Bakery Mack’s Flax Bread with Crofter’s Organic Apricot Spread. I’m not someone who eats super healthy grained bread or organic food on the reg. But when I visited Shell Bell this is what she ate, and my white bread lovin’ self decided to suck it up and eat her rabbit food so that she wouldn’t spend more money on groceries just for me. And well, as much as I hate to admit this, I really liked it. So when I got home I took my ass to the store and bought some.
Drinking – A French Vanilla Cappuccino from Timmies
Purchasing – Bahahaha….given the pending unemployedness I won’t be doing much purchasing for a while.
Looking forward to – My cousin is getting married this weekend, which means dancing and booze, obviously. It also means a mini family reunion. Can’t wait to see these faces…
Watching – Obviously since I’m at work I’m not watching anything at this exact moment. But I can’t wait for the next episode of Rookie Blue. Seriously, I’m obsessed. Its not your typical cop show, its more like the Grey’s Anatomy of police shows. And if you’ve never watched it, you should start. But I would suggest starting from the beginning. Rookie Blue marathon anyone?
Loving – This pins from Pinterest
Listening to – Runnin’ Outta Moonlight – Randy Houser. This song makes me happy.
Reading – I’ve been reading the Beautiful Bastards trilogy. I’ve got two out of three read and I would have the third read by now if I wasn’t doing the whole saving money thing.
Craving – Pepsi. Its my go to guilt food.
Feeling – Unsure and uneasy. About life. About what to do next.
