Journal Journal: Unemployment....sigh

So I work in a call center that is shutting down and moving volume overseas. The decision to move volume was the clients, the decision to close was corp.'s. For the last 4 years I have worked here providing support for what is most likely my least favorite (and most of /.'s) company in the world. The big evil. Feburary 9th we got our notice. In four days, on April 9th, I'll be out of a job.

It's odd coming into work these last few months. When I first started, I could walk into work felt alive. For the last 56 days, I've felt it dying. Each day it's quieter; the walls are barer. The life I felt here is slowly disappearing; Being eaten by the cancerous greed of two corporations.

I had dedicated myself to this company. Even though I despised everything about the client, I took pride in my job and did the best that I knew how.

In four days, I will walk out of this building, and be unemployed. *sigh* life goes on. I'm still young, going to try to finish school. Not looking forward to unemployment tho.
