Life! Don't Talk To Me About Life!

This post title comes from the classic silly song,

Life has been crazy for me lately.

I've worked at the same job for the last six years. I'm a CAD drafter for URS. Their Northern Utah branch disposes of hazardous weapons. I use a program called Microstation to produce and edit electrical, piping, mechanical, HVAC and architectural plans.

URS has been under contract to dispose of chemical weapons for the government and we're all done. The lay offs have begun and my RIF (reduction in force) will be October 18th. It's scary. I mean, I'm glad I actually have a date, but what if I can't find a job before then? Sure, they'll give us severance and such, but I'm scared.

So I haven't been able to really find the time to write or edit. A lot of my time is spent on the job hunt or my regular work or my family. When I do have down time I've chosen to relax instead of engaging my brain.

But I'm going to try to do better so all I can do is ask you to bear with me for a bit.

Thanks guys.
