Well, I have become a statistic. I lost my job of 2 years on the 15th of this month due to a "reduction in force"... but that is ok. I am optimistic and am working hard to bring in a lot of projects. I'm ready to do as much freelance art, design and video work as possible. The economy is no bueno right now, and everyone is suffering from it. But, I think we all need to keep our chins up because if we listen to how bad it is and what the news tells us every day, it will be hard to turn things around. So, for me, it's onward and upward from here on out!
