Add me to the list...

I'm totally full of doom and gloom these last couple of days, but the cherry on the sundae was just about 30 minutes ago when I got brought into an office, had the door closed and told, "We really don't want to do this. We love you and really thought you would grow and do wonderfully here, but we have to let you go."

Great. I had only been there 7 months and they figured since they had to let people go they would go with the old mantra, "Last hired, first fired." Strange how the male employee that started oh about two months ago was still left there, but I had to go. I'm telling you working there was like something out of Mad Men. I know I'm a bit bitter.

So my car ride home was filled with many tears. Even though this job was totally not my cup of tea it did enable me to pay my bills and buy nice stuff for my house.

I'm trying to look on the positive side. At least I will now have the time to work on my blog, my secret little side project, and get my interior design business off the ground.

I'll still need to make a living some how so if any of you have any insider tips on any openings in the NY city area I would appreciate it. Come on Eddie Ross don't you want me to become your assistant?

Ah for the time being I guess I should contact Melisa at Lil Bee and join in on the fun and do my guest post on my favorite stimilus package posts that she has been doing.

Oh honey, I am so sorry! I am certain that the future holds great things for you. Maybe this was a blessing in disguise and will put you one step closer to starting your design business. Best of luck! XOXO

Paloma is so right! You should start your own business. Clearly you have a passion for this! Let's start our own co together! You're very positive and talented so don't lose hope. xoxoxo

I'm so sorry. I was in your shoes about a month ago...I was there for 6 months, really loved the job, and they pulled the "last hired, first fired" thing on me too. Sucks. BUT, another job landed in my lap about two weeks later. Keep your spirits up, things will work out! Never spend one minute not being happy, when someone closes a window, move to the next window or break down a door!!!!!

I'm so sorry! Freaking economy! I'm with everyone else that this must be a blessing in disguise. It's time to step out boldly in pursuing your dream. You have so much talent. You can so it. Much love to you. xoxo

AW, hun- I am so so so sorry! It totally sucks to not have control in deciding weather or not to stay at the job even if you didn't like it that much. I agree with everyone else, that this is a blessing in disguise because now you get to work on your own business and get it up off the ground that much faster! Stay positive, you are at the beginning of great things and I'm very excited to see everything you are going to accomplish. xoxoxox

I'm so glad you left a comment on House of Turquoise! But I was so sad to come to your blog to find such sad news! I'm so sorry!!! But like everyone else says, this will end up being a blessing in disguise. :)

Well entrepreneurs like yourself probably have a hard time working for other people anyways. And when you are self employed you're always in a recession cause you're always looking for business and generating your business! You are so talented, It's just time to start on your own!

Thanks ladies for all the well wishes. I'm just allowing myself today to be a Poo and let out all my tears and anger. Then on to bigger and better things.

My own business was always been my plan and I was having a hard time trying to advance things with silly work in the way. So now my start-up will be my full-time job!

Oh my goodness- that totally sucks. Best of luck with your business. This might be the gods above pushing you to what you were really meant to do.

I must know what your secret project is- I'm like a two year old I swear, as soon as someone says there is a secret I can NOT stop thinking about it and will bug the person till they cave- so beware :)

Would you like me to send you some of those cupcakes and mojitos I was eating the other day? I'd be happy to share :)

Poo, Camila. Poooooooo! But as they say, when one door closes another one opens. I've been fired 2 or 3 times in my short little career life and every time I was in sales. I suck at sales. The only thing I can sell you is me. lol. Us creative types don't belong in those dead end cubicle jobs anyway. Dry your tears, put on your big girl panties, your best outfit, and put one foot in front of the other. God has WONDERS in store for you. Just keep on the positive side and you will see...
