Not the Best Monday

Today started out how most Mondays start. I hit snooze a few times on the alarm. My bed was just too warm and comfortable. The commute was fine; I even managed to get a seat on the subway! That was the highlight of my day.

It went downhill from there.

After a long, slow day of work, as I was getting ready to leave, my boss asked to speak to me. I don’t have to tell you what happened next, but today was my last day at Major League Baseball Advanced Media. I knew it was possibly going to happen. I was told over a week ago things were changing and people would have to be let go because of budget concerns and a lack of hours. I had really hoped one of those people wouldn’t be me.

So here I am, seven months after starting an amazing job that I didn’t know how long it would last, looking again. I have learned more during my time at MLBAM than I could have asked for. I leave with the opportunity to return when Spring Training starts, and the promise of a glowing recommendation should I find something full-time prior to that.

So I turn to you again social media, should you know anyone who is hiring someone with my background, please refer them to my website: If you’re not exactly sure what I am looking for, I can best explain it as a hybrid of social media and event planning. Last year I wrote a post about what my perfect job would be, but after working at MLBAM, I know I want social media to be a main focal point.

For now, I’m hoping tomorrow will be a better day.
