Today was my 7th anniversary at the law firm where I work.
And today the partners announced that the firm is closing and that I only have a job for the next 4 weeks. The partner I work for will sincerely try to take me with him when he finds a place to land, but there are no guarantees.
There are lots of feelings rushing through me -- fear, insecurity, depression -- but the most overwhelming feeling is sadness. You see, while I complain as much as the next guy about work, for the last 4 years I have been lucky -- nay, blessed -- to work for a really decent guy. More than anything, I'm upset that I won't be working for him any more.
