Right after my finals in the fall 2009 semester – which was right before Christmas – my boss at work called me into his office.
They were going to let me go. More specifically, my part time position was going to be terminated because they were going to hire someone full time as a systems administrator.
I have no knowledge of Windows Server 2003. While I could work full time now, I’m still “trying” to go to school.
My [former] boss, and many others, have said this means I can focus more on my photography. I was getting too comfortable.
I’ve been out of work for about 10 weeks and this post has been a draft – until now.
What’s next for me?
Until (or if) I get another 9-to-5 job, I’m a freelancer. I can do 1-2 paid photography gigs per week and be good to go. Weddings? 1-2 per month.
If you’d like to help and know someone who needs anything photography-related, please send them to Bryan Villarin Photography. Thanks!
Oh, and sorry for the delay in posting this. I was being odd.

I’d like photography services circa July 2011. Thanks 🙂
BTW – we need to chat about that. I have some changes to my original idea. Not major. I’m meeting with my wedding planner again in a couple weeks to discuss photography and catering, so I’d like to chat with you before then so I have something to tell her, haha.
I know what you mean. I was laid-off January 3rd, I have not found a job yet, and I’ve been barely making ends meets between my savings and my web consulting gigs. Not to mention that I’ve had almost the same post saved as a draft since then too. FYI, in case you don’t already know, your mood can get in the way of a lot of decisions that need to be made, so keep your spirits high.
James: I’m sorry, man. You keep your head up, too. (Please send me a link to your web consulting website/portfolio in case I can refer anyone to you.)
