    It depends, maybe you'll find the right job right away or maybe it will take a bit longer. But I'm sure the next job will be better than the last. There's always something to learn. Unfortunately advertising is so unpredictable and designers always are the first ones to get let go. I've been in the industry over 10 years and I've been laid off about 3 times. However, every job after the last gets better. I'm in a bind now because I don't know what I want to do, whether I want to go back to an agency or try corporate again... so much to think about.

          Thanks everyone for all your support! I'm feeling better about it now, I have severance through next month, so should be okay! Oh, and you guys will never believe this, so 2 nights after it happened, I had a nightmare, woke up screaming and jumped out of bed only to run into the edge of my computer desk and slip on something else, landing face first into the floor...my FI turned on the light, so confused, and there was blood all over...I may have broken my nose and just found out I have insurance for one more month, so I'm going to the doctor next...WTF! Bad week! But, I think that things can only get better! :) Thanks for all your well wishes!

            Oh my goodness! My FI broke his nose back in Oct. I begged him to get surgery because it is so crooked. He farted around too long and now he can't get it done for the wedding. Oh well- he's still cute.

            I hope it's not broken- only bruised! Good luck on the dr. apt!
            Happily married since 2008

              I'm sorry to hear that. I got laid off last fall, 3 days before I was suppose to close on my first house! But everything ended up working it self out, and I know everything will work out for you. Not to be "preachy" but ussually when something is taken away, it is so that something better can grow in it's place. On the positive side, now you have tons of time to be on BDW!

              Hope the nose is just badly bruised and not broken... (I know this smile doesn't fit here but I just wanted to use it)

                Oh my!!!
                You're definitely stressing right now. I know it's hard to do, but spend some time on yourself and it will help you clear your head. Take days off to do things that you like to do and you'll feel better.

                  I feel your fear, Everton up and quit his job with less then 2 months to go before our wedding. With a wedding to pay for, our 5 children booked for our 2 week wedding vacation, and a meet and greet bar-b-q planned that month, I was more than a little worried. It all worked out in the end though, Everton was happier, he didn't worry at all, and we still managed to have a beautiful wedding and everything worked out in the end. Where there is a will, there is always a way:)

                  Good luck and keep your spirits high!

                    Sorry to hear that, I went through that before and it was not a great feeling. But something better always come around, and now you can look for something you like this time.
