I have been gainfully unemployed for two whole weeks now, and I have to honestly say I feel about about a bajillion times better than I did a month ago. I have virtually no stress, I'm working out, eating well, am well-rested, and my house is clean. The Fiance and I are having conversations around the dinner table instead of eating like zombies after 8 pm every night. I'm HAPPY, and I hadn't even realized how unhappy I was before. This is all so completely for the best.
My job search is going swimmingly. I have multiple prospects that I have found on my own, as well as several that I have found through headhunters. There have been interviews and second-rounds - even a thrid round on Thursday. A couple dings, of course, but all in all, I feel confident that I am in the process of bouncing back. Optimism is the name of the game.
Many thanks to everyone who has reached out to wish me luck and positive vibes. I am incredibly lucky to not only have these opportunities, but the support of so many friends and internet peeps. Thanks all! Keep those crossables crossed!
