Safe at Sun...


At 6am this morning, I received a text message from a team-mate that I had worked with for 9 years. He had been let go. I couldn't believe it. The rif's had started.

One farewell email after another started filling my inbox. I simply wasn't prepared for Bloody Monday...I thought this was all happening on Tuesday because I had heard 'the 31st' numerous times.

I talked to my manager at 7:35am and she informed me I was safe. I almost cried but for the sake of professionalism, I kept my composure.

It wasn't until about 10:25am that I broke down. A flood of enormous and undeniable relief.
