No hobby update today, just some depressing news in a way. Yesterday my office was told we are closing down on July 31, 2009 & everyone, I mean everyone is being let go. Now I work for Semperian which was formerly GMAC Auto Finance. It seems that this economy is taking a toll on the auto industry (well duh!) and Semperian has decided to shut our office down because of it. Not only is our office closing but so is our High Risk collection center here in Phoenix as well as our Hartford Connecticut office.
Now I have been through this before about 3 years ago and surprising I don't feel that bad. In fact I have been being more disgruntled at how the company has been doing things of late. So this closing is actually looking like a good thing. It looks like I will be getting about a 4 month severance package which is better than nothing. Its just sad that there will be a lot of folks loosing out more than me. I have a friend that just needed to make it to the end of the year in order to be able to retire with age & years of service and she will not get anything!
So while it may look like a terrible thing me loosing my job, I have complete trust that God will provide, he has to this point why would he not for the rest? So we shall see what happens, I will continue to work on my Hobby, in fact I may go into the Army painting business, heck I only charge my friends $3.00 per figure, but we will see.
Oh and I am still going to Adepticon, that has already been budgeted and paid for, so I will be looking forward to next weekends gaming extravaganza!
