I’ve been terminated

February 3, 2009

Will Design APIs for FoodWell, it was two months ago today that I was laid off (along with 600 others). For some reason, they did not give me a severance package right away, but kept me on the payroll for a while. I’ve never had this in my previous layoffs, but I was grateful for it because it meant that we still had health insurance.

Today is my official termination. Bye-bye, paycheck and benefits. Hello, EDD unemployment insurance and COBRA.

As an American missionary kid who grew up in Japan, I'm a child of two cultures, while not fully belonging to either. This gives me a sightly different view of the world.
