God fucking dammit.

The guy who recruited me into this job almost a year ago, the first seriously stable and enjoyable job that I've had for about six or more years, called me up this afternoon and told me that he'd taken a job at a rival publication, and not only was he leaving, but he was leaving today, because since it was a competitor, they didn't want him to stay the entire two weeks. So here I am, a kite whose string has been sliced, waiting to find out what, if anything, is going to be done with me. They'll pretend to find me something to do, but they won't want to. I've been in other jobs before where my boss/mentor/sponsor left, and it never, ever works out. Nobody is going to fire me outright, but I'll be lucky if I'm still employed six months from now.

Appreciate the hug. We're now negotiating to see which of three groups gets to supervise us. Luckily, the guy who we want to work for wants us to work for him, so it may work out....

it sounds like it is heading in a good direction. i've recently been assigned to report to a different manager and i've been happy as to how it's working out given how scary it all can be.
