The economic downturn has been hitting for a few years now. Many people have been had their hours/pay cut, laid off, or even fired. This hadn't really effected me all that much until now, starting next week (Today is Feb. 8, 2016) my full-time job will become a part-time job.
I completely understand why my hours have been cut. For the past month or two, I've had very little work to do. The sales department hasn't been selling any web projects. Honestly, I don't know if it's because people don't want it, or they're just not interested in selling it. Mind you, I work for a phone directory company, where most of sales-people have been selling phone-book ads to make their money.
Though I'm now at this downturn and now unsure about my income, bills, and other financial obligations I have. I don't really find myself being all that upset. Anyone who knows me also knows that I am a Christian man, and my faith in God has carried me this far in the good times and bad. I do have other positions that aren't related to design or development, but at this point in my career I don't want to back-track to a position that doesn't advance my career.
Well, if you've read this far. Thank you, for reading my thoughts. Hopefully soon, I'll be posting that I have a new position or that I've been restored completely in this one. Until then......
