It's not what you think.
Sadly, fourteen of my cohorts were laid off yesterday. Sign of the times I suppose. It happened so suddenly. I wasn't able to say goodbye. Brutal. Swift. Done.
I saw one girl rush out in tears, not knowing what had just transpired. But she was a crier. Cried at everything so I didn't know. And the guy I used to have lunch with? I spoke with him in the morning about our project. Then I didn't see him for the rest of the day.
Then there was the meeting. Tightening our belts. Making necessary adjustments. It may not end here. Weathering the storm. We'll see.
