Here’s the crazy part, when they laid me off I felt a wash of relief come over me. Don’t get me wrong, I’m terrified. I only have 2 pay checks left and I have not not had a job since 1999…but over the last year I’ve been worried about money because of my job and in the last few months I had been worried about whether or not I’d be laid off AND have no money. So at least I’m back to stressing about just money. I know the job market is still pretty crappy but maybe there’s a great thing just waiting for me around the corner. I have to remain optimistic.
So what does this mean for The Art of Accessories? The only real change will be a list of my affiliate networks on the sidebar because that’s a way for me to make some income in order to keep the blog going (I’m self hosted, so I’ve got to find the cash somewhere…) but other than that not much will change here. I might even blog more since I’ll have more time to actually dedicate to creative things and the blog. The only thing I’ve been worried about are my How to Accessorize posts! I mean, do you really want to see me in my pajamas?! I’ll have to dress myself up for errands and the miscellaneous stuff I’ll do while I’m home.
Despite being laid off, I’m going to have a spectacular birthday. I’ve got a red velvet cheesecake I made in the fridge and a bunch of family and friends to celebrate with me this evening. I’ve also got my family, my health and I’m pretty happy, so this doesn’t have to be the worst thing ever. So happy birthday to me and I’ll be back to blogging regularly tomorrow, I am spending the day celebrating!
