The past year has been a pretty wild ride. I could write a blues song… or worse, a country song. You know how those go.
A lot has happened, but long story short… This morning I and what seems like half the cool kids at my company got laid off due to a rather sudden corporate change in direction. Barely over a week ago, they were still making promotional videos about the stuff which is now cancelled.
So… know anyone who needs a quirky tech generalist and professional goddess?
Ideally I’d love to do something which benefits a collaborative maker community… like we do on BLF; you guys are awesome. But I realize that may be a tall order. Working remotely is good too, since I’m currently stuck in Asgard until I tie up a few loose ends. And some of you may have noticed I enjoy playing with people… so that should probably be a thing I can keep doing.
In the short term I plan on taking a bit of personal time to recover before I even think about jumping into anything, but I’ll start putting in applications before it goes out of style.
Edit: So… I thought it was funny to say I could write a blues song. But you know what? Screw “could”. Why not actually do it? So I did. I had some time to kill anyway. I call it the Ubu Blues, since I’m not doing Ubuntu any more. It’s short and sweet and sloppy, not unlike this sudden layoff process, and ends with me leaving in my TARDIS.
(if you were wondering, my Wondrous Rod of Light also doubles as a sonic screwdriver… and a guitar… and it’s also good for scratching hard-to-reach places… it’s multi-purpose)
Edit 2: No, I’m not going to write a country song… no matter how nicely anyone asks.
Edit 3: Sorry about the excessive avatar use. A girl’s got to do something to keep herself entertained, you know?
