It’s About Time

Saturday, July 25th, 2020 No comments

Yesterday was the one year anniversary of my team at Intel finding out that we were all being laid off. A few days ago I received an offer for a contract position. I held off on saying anything publicly because I received an offer for a contract role at Nike last September, but it was rescinded the next day because they wanted to go in another direction. I can’t remember if I mentioned that here or not. This position is with Walmart through a company called Insight Global. I’m definitely not a fan of Walmart. I had stopped shopping there even when I lived in the land of Walmart. However, a good friend reminded me that we are more important than our employers. I’m not going to feel too bad that Walmart is keeping a roof over my head. They’re giving me a chance when nobody else would. If doesn’t have to be forever. Since my start date is in 2 days I’m pretty confident I will actually get to start. My laptop was mailed yesterday and is expected to arrive Monday morning.

It’ll be nice and also weird to really be working again. Other than a short contract I worked on during the month of June, I haven’t done any “real” work since last July.

This will be a remote position. I’m going to turn my 2nd bedroom into a home office again. I’ve already ordered a new desk and a few other things.
