Fired

The Spoony One | Oct 31 2008 | 

I got laid off from my job today. I absolutely hated every second of it, but it’s still hard to take. My folks are really disappointed in me, I’m feeling pretty dejected, and job prospects at the moment are bleak.

It pretty much caps off the most miserable year of my life. I can never remember a time when I was so consistently bored, stressed-out, and unhappy. Maybe some of you are cuing up the Linkin Park, and you’re probably justified, but despite my relative successes in other fronts, you’ve seen me at my lowest point. Don’t get me wrong, you guys were the bright points of the year. Making videos and entertaining you with them are the good times I’ll remember. I’ve been knocked down a lot over the past 12 months, and despite the fact I’ve taken a lot of time to keep pulling myself together, you’ve stuck with me. Thanks for that.

I’ve also met some great new people at That Guy With the Glasses, and we’ve left several YouTube milestones in the dust. Over 13,000 subscribers and climbing. I’m amazed.

I don’t know what the future holds for me. It’s pretty scary. I hated that damn job, but it represented stability at least. But now…I guess we’ll see.
