I didn't expect this...not in a million years.


Today I was told that my job will end on March 31st. Sigh. I jinxed it by saying I was so happy. I really hope this is a blessing in disguise. I have a month and a half left. This is just great...I'll be back I gotta put my head back on & get out of shock. Geez why did it have to happen now?

Oh no. Melanie, I am so so sorry. If you need to talk at all, feel free to email me. Sending good thoughts your way.

Hollie said...

aww, I hope it is a blessing in disguise. I suppose on the bright side, at least they told you in advance! I hope you find something that you really love.

Olivia said...

So sorry to hear that :( Hope you find a replacement soon! xx

Jennifer Fabulous said...

Oh my god. I am so sorry, Mel. That is terrible news. Isn't it sad how nothing can stay even a little bit perfect? :(

Well, start job searching immediately. After all, it's easier to find a new job when you have a job! I'm crossing my fingers for you. xoxo

Chrissy said...

I'm here for you!

Jennifer said...

I'm so sorry, chick. I'll be praying something good comes along. (:

Amanda said...

I'm so sorry. All I can say is, at least they've given that amount of time to find another job. That's definitely a blessing because when I got let go I was told that day, at the end of the day, on the last day of the month. That was shitty. You'll find another job. A better one :)

ofarealy said...

Mine ends in Aug. I know the feeling, but don't worry there is something better coming along for you! Don't stress and stay positive because who knows what could happen!

ag. said...

Oh no! I'm so sorry to hear this!!! Once the shock wears off, I hope you can use this next month and a half to line up something amazing that makes you just as happy. GOOD LUCK!

I'm really sorry to hear this but I know this has to be a blessing in disguise. You just got into your new house and God won't take it away. Everything will be fine, & I'll be praying for you. :)

Kristin said...

I'm so sorry. We just went through that. Ugh. Hopefully something even better is around the corner!

Katy Mary said...

oh man, that totally stinks Mel! I'm so sorry, keep your chin up and update that resume.

just call me jo said...

Yikes! I hate it when stuff happens like that. Start looking right now for your new opportunity. Best wishes.

Vivian said...

Ah... I'm sorry to hear that... this is so unpleasant and kind of scary. But keep positive thoughts. Someone once told me that the best things happen when you're in between jobs, or in a 'scary' situation. I think great things might happen for you, so don't worry :)

I'm sorry to hear about your job; this could possibly mean a new beginning for you - maybe an even better job!

Sunshine Sarah said...

I hate it when this happens... I just began a lovely job on social media & pr these days and I really hope it will last.... at least until I find smth better. :)
What job did you have? (if you may answer, of course)

Love,
Sarah.

abby | ybba said...

:[ i hate it when that happens...it recently happened to my mom too. cept she's in the philippines, and it's harder for her to find another job because of age discrimination over there. apparently, if you're 35+ it's harder for her to find a job. it just made my heart sink.

feel better hun!

Krystal said...

OH NO!!! keep your head up :(

Celia said...

oh my goodness Melanie. Sending you my best wishes. I sure do hope this is a blessing for you!

Cafe Fashionista said...

Oh, I'm so sorry, Mel. Please stay strong; you will find something even better. You just have to stay positive and hope. :)

I'm sorry to hear about your job. I understand how you feel. But, remember you'll find another job...and it will be more fabulous than the one you have now. And yes, it sucks but, it will get better! However, I hope you enjoy the weekend.
