Top Posts of 2019

Another year down, and 2020 has already started flying by! Before we get too far into it (and I forget to do this…) here’s the top posts from 2019. Thanks to everyone who stopped by! I absolutely love writing, although if you follow this blog and check it regularly, there are times where weeks go by without a post. Sometimes I just don’t have what I think is something worthy of writing. I’ll try to be better about that this year. In all, I had 89 new posts in 2019. To be honest, my favorites are the original satire I wrote in the fall. But anywho, here are some stats!

There is no playlist that could include all the songs (or song titles, at least) that relate to being fired, laid off, or just flat out quitting your job. So for now, here are 12 songs/song titles about that very thing. After reading this, check out my story about being laid off the very same day I had jury duty!

Note: it’s mostly about the song titles. 🙂
