It's The End of the World As We Know It...

... and I do not feel fine.

Today on Twitter I asked people to think good thoughts for me, so thank you to anyone who thought of me at 15:30!

But, alas, I was told that work will not be renewing my year contract. So... yeah. I was on a one year contract, and am so busy and needed in the team, I didn't expect for a second to be let go!

The worst thing is that obviously I brought Sarah to them, we got to go into work and leave together every day, have lunch together and even worked on some projects together.. and now I'm gone! I have two weeks notice to find a new role.

This isn't as big of a deal as I think it is right now, I know people go through so much worse, but I had trouble finding a job last year, and I'm not ready to go through the rejection and depression that comes along with it.

Tomorrow I promise to think positively, pick myself up and start all over again, but just for tonight, I hope you all don't mind if I wallow in it a bit.

To add insult to injury, United cancelled one of our flights home at Christmas. We got it sorted, but seriously, today?

I hope you all are having better days than we are here at Sprezzatura.

I'll leave you with an awesome video I joked I'd put up if I didn't get to go permanent...

Anyone else love Flight of the Conchords? Of course you do :)

Love, Laura xo


  1. You know what? As hard as the things are that life throws at us, everything happens for areason, although we don't know why at the time. There is something out there for you that is bigger, better and far more fabulous, and you will find it.

    But for tonight, wallow in the sadness, eat ben&jerry's, watch crappy films, and mostly...hold on to your beloved and let her help you feel better.

    And be safe in the knowledge that your friends and family love you very much, and are supporting you through this every step of the way. Even those who have to do so from afar :)

  2. Here, Here! I echo that sentiment from L&S. I cannot tell you how many times I have won and lost jobs until I found something that fit me and I ultimately became addicted to! Reality BITES the big one!
    Take a day or two and let the negativity fly away, but then, get out there and show everybody how terrific you are!
    If you need a character reference. I am volunteering!

    Hang in there, Girlee's! *BIG HUG*


  3. That's rough, but the hardest moments are given to the strongest people! Hang in there because I am sure bigger and better things await you! Xox
