The Great Man lowered the boom on me today; after the end of January, I need to have found something else for myself. While this is unsettling news, it was not unexpected. To commiserate, Happy Bachelor Lawyer and I met up with the White Mule Society tonight at the brewpub.
You can read about the legend of the White Mule here, on the brewpub's website.
This "White Mule Society" was really just a group of Happy Bachelor Lawyer's drinking buddies who are also attorneys. Trading war stories and the experiences of others who have been through career changes softened the blow somewhat. I still have anxiety about this new house we've bought, but I'm trying to approach the situation with confidence and perspective.
I should be able to land on my feet, at this point. Of course only time will tell. When I completely sober up again, I may start being anxious once more, but for now at least I should be able to get some sleep. After I drink a lot of water.
It was also a very good thing that The Wife came to join us. Otherwise, I'd still be down there trying to sober up. Anyway, it's time to go drink some water.
