Well, so to continue with the usage of metaphors, the storm has actually arrived and it's now raining. Or we could say many things are going pear shaped with the employment situation. But rather than being panicked by this turn of events and the arrival of the storm, I feel I am in one of those movie scenes: standing outside staring up watching the rain fall, not caring about getting all wet, and just embracing life and the new opportunites that are opening up my way.
More updates soon when I analyse a bit better what is going on.
Come gather 'round people
Wherever you roam
And admit that the waters
Around you have grown
And accept it that soon
You'll be drenched to the bone.
If your time to you
Is worth savin'
Then you better start swimmin'
Or you'll sink like a stone
For the times they are a-changin'
(From The Times They Are A-Changin' by Bob Dylan)
