I lost my job…

I lost my job…

Let me preface this by saying that yes, I'm a college student but this wasn't some cute-spending-money job. I pride myself in not having to ever ask my parents for money because I support myself, especially since my parents do not make that much money at all. Anyway. So today I called work sick because I wasn't feeling well, and the owner of the place I work at (it's a bead store) basically told me that she was laying me off because her daughter, who was moving to New Orleans but obviously now she can't, needed the hours (I work 25 hours a week--well, worked). Now, I didn't love my job. But it paid. And as a part-time college student applying to grad schools, I needed that money. I read somewhere once that losing your job can cause serious depression/major stress. I never believed it until happened to me. I am really, really really low right now. I just figured I would share with folks who probably understand.
