Had lunch with a soon-to-be-former colleague. It was good to reconnect with someone on “the inside” again; first time since I found out I was laid off. I found myself trying to make sure I didn’t come off like the bitter downsize-ee. Seen that behavior in the past and it is such a turn-off.  I’m still looking internally, but it just feels so alien now. Tomorrow I have to go in for my 6 month evaluation, as I’m not officially off the books until January sometime. I’ve never been more relaxed about it. Normally I’m on pins and needles before an eval, always unfounded. Now the proverbial “not so much”.  Stay tuned.
