Thread: Victim of downsizing...
09-30-2005, 02:59 PM #1lilGuestVictim of downsizing...
Sadly I found out today my job in the AppleCentre where I worked is, well, gone. Seems like the business wishes to go in another direction retail wise, god knows where.
Oh well... it was nice while the dream lasted!

Sorry to hear that. Good luck to you in future endeavors.Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass, It's about learning to dance in the rain!

Thanks guys, I appreciate that! :flower: I am still a bit down in the dumps over it, especially when I found what to the letter looks like my old job on the agency's website I got the job through originally. I hope there isn't more to this than meets the eye.
So it is indeed a bummer for me, but no point in being too down in the dumps for too long about it, once I find something else (doesn't even have to be computer, let alone Apple related) I'll look back with hindsight and think what was I moping about! It will be a shame that I will likely have to use a Windows computer which isn't *that* bad it's just I'm a bit of a doofus on Windows, I do silly things like Ctrl + Click for the right mouse and start wondering where my Apple menu went :flower:
Maybe I'll sneak Basillisk II on it and load Word 5.1 on there and Alt Tab when the boss isn't looking hehe!!
I am of course kidding around. It was a bit of luck me finding this particular job I had, and my luck at this one ran out. Either way, it won't be my last fling with working with Apple computers, I have a number of tricks up my sleeve that may involve some of my own enterprise.
After all, I'm 22, I know my Macs, about time I start putting some of it to use :flower:
I have an idea of maybe doing some digital painting classes/tutoring with Corel Painter, or maybe some classes, Macs for switchers or something. I'll think of something, they're a bit pie in the sky but may as well try! :flower:

Keep on pluggin' Vicky, you'll find something that more than likely fits you better than that which you lost. I'll pray for you.

Sorry to here that Vicky you are always an awesome source when people need help, you'll be a loss to the company for sure.
Keep on plugging, a Mac for switcher project wouldn't be that bad of an idea, I could probably still use it :p
