Uh-oh.

Well, it finally happened. My company got sold, to a competitor. This probably doesn't mean anything great for my future employment, though I'm okay through the rest of the year--since we've been sold to a competitor instead of some diverse investment group, there'll be more redundancies, more places where operations can be parrellelized.

*mutter*

At least the uncertainty part is over, and if they cut me I'll have six weeks of redundancy pay and two weeks of vacation.

Ugh. Well at least some of the uncertainty is over now. It really stinks to 'not know'.

Well...I could possibly still have a job in a year, but it really doesn't seem likely. The purchasing company doesn't have a local office, so they'd likely want to consolidate, and I really don't want to leave Austin for a job I don't really care about. Bleah.

Well, I've been thinking of leaving the company for a while now, I really haven't been happy here in about a year. So, this gives me good incentive.
