I lost my job two weeks ago, and no I didn't leave on good terms. I cannot say much, since I singed a disclosure agreement, but lets just say I was f'd over, and f'd hard. Anyway, I have not really felt like doing anything, not even ride my bike, I have only put in 100 or so miles (notmaly 200+ a week) in the past two weeks, except the solo century to get all the being fired anger out. It was like if I wasn't looking for a job, I was being a lazy ass, so I didn't do a damn thing. That is now over... I got hired today at Catoctin Wildlife Preserve and Zoo . A wonderful place doing wonderful things. I am starting at the bottom, as a groundskeeper, but the owner said with my experience with reptiles and inverts I will be in that department soon. Animals and animal conservation has always been a love of mine, ever since I was a kid, so the pay cut is worth it. So, after my new job offer this morning, and watching the race on OLN last night, my cycling bug has hit again and hit hard. I don't start my new job till Thursday, so I plan on many many miles. Has this ever happened to any of you guys, something takes the urge away, and when it comes back, it comes back with a fury?
