that’s how fast it happens

and all of a sudden, i’m getting laid off tomorrow. WHOOSH. corona hits and it’s the absolute end of the hospitality sector, just that fast. we still are at 95% occupancy but the cliff is coming (i tried to find a cliff gif, but “dramatic descent gif” turned up nothing???? maybe a duckduckgo problem). have had a lot of hollowed-out-scared feelings this week but now strangely at peace. because i can at least concentrate on school for a hot second and catch up and maybe even take an extra summer school class (doubtful but maybe)? also wouldn’t it be a miracle if that new marfa library job — the one for which i had already filled out the application and was just awaiting the job posting — still panned out?! but the library is now closed indefinitely, and with fewer tourists — will the city even have the funds for the position? looks unlikely. more devastation coming, look how fast it came for me. even so, i’m grateful for the year with el cosmico and i guess — here we go.
