    I have been working as a Project Manager for a commercial construction company since 2005, work has been steadily treading down hill to the point that we can't make payroll rather often.

    I've seen this coming for a good long while and have tried to position myself as best as possible,

    So as of tomorrow I am permanently layed off, except for an occasional day here and there to help with some upcoming projects


    I can't tell you how flippin relieved I am. It's been a couple months knowing that the hammer was going to fall but not when.

    As of Monday 5-23-2011 I am a Full Time knifemaker.


    pray for me as I descend into madness
