It's been some crazy weeks here in Pinhouse-world. Emotional rollercoaster extraordinaire.
My earlier suspicions about ending up unemployed, has now been confirmed.
Yup. I am, as of the end of the month, officially out of a job.
In total, 47 people has been let go, because of a failing market and it is not getting any better until 2017. At best.
It is hard to know what to feel. I feel sorry for all who lost their job. I am sad to no longer knowing what I am supposed to do every day. I am angry, because of the way we employees were treated during the process (there will be lawsuits...) and I think our management and executive has made some pretty ridiculous decisions.
On some level I am even releaved (sort of) to be let go, because it might open up better opportunities for me. My job has often been a source of frustration, it has effected my health and there has been no chance of personal growth. Industrial workers are often just seen as a number, not as a person. You are expendable and replaceable. I have been at the facory for eight years, and yet, everything I've learnt and done, don't mean a thing on the "outside". The work experience is not transferable/useful any other place, which is not a good thing... So basically, I've just gotten older, not any wiser.
But I will not dwell on this. I have decided to want, what the Universe wants. What happens, happens. And I am better off if I can make what happens, my own will. It is up to me now. This could be my biggest disaster, OR my biggest opportunity. I choose to let it be a good thing!
On another (and much more enjoyable) note, there has been some sewing. Not as much as I would like, though. Big life changing events has the power to suck the energy out of you, but I hope I'll bounce back quickly!
I am happy to give you a sneak peak of my Victorian underthings! (Scandalous!!)
My corset is nearly done now, just some binding and flossing to go. And both chemise and drawers are ready. Cute, huh?
Now, all there is to do is get it all finished, photographed and then, it's onto the DRESS!
