Ready, Aim, Fired

Shock and awe. Boy was I wrong to feel calm about today. It was one of the worst experiences of my life. And the most special part is that a HUGE chunk of my department, people I care about and respect, are now out of work in the middle of an academic semester. I'm not too in favor of not having a job myself, either. We just didn't see this catastrophe coming.

This sucks.

Lakeitha and I am so sorry to find out...they got rid of the wrong ones...now we are left with incompetence, senior citizenship and might i add just pure trifling, lazy ass people who use things like your sexuality to haze and keep you down...God help this so called university because it has taken a turn for the worst...we are drinking to you and the lost potential of this place...we will be trying to transfer asap much love and our prayers go up with you in mind...

You are too kind--and funny. :) Things are what they are. It was a surprise, but I'll be okay. Guess I don't have to engage in F.E.W. Harper's "Two Offers" dilemma anymore; I'll be a stay-at-home mom for a while. Heaven help me!

Hope things go smoothly for you all.
