Why does this always happen to me?

I thought I'd finally found a place that I could work at a long time, and eventually retire from. I thought this was a stable company.

But nooooo. Life won't allow me to have stability for some reason.

Yesterday, I found out that the company I work for has been sold. They knew about this since September and were forced to sit on it. Worst of all, it's been sold to some healthcare corporation with a former Goldman Sachs guy for a CEO. I know how these things go. Unless a condition of the sale was keeping everyone on staff, we are all fair game. I could potentially lose my job, which is something I am not prepared to deal with at this point. I'm still trying to work through all the crap that the election dredged up for me. I have a feeling they will come in and clean house or close the office and send all of our work to their Pittsburgh office.

This is why I loathe working for other people. There is no loyalty anymore. Even the most wonderful employer will throw his employees under the bus for enough money. I hate the business world. I wish I could figure out a way to work for myself. Or not work at all.

Guess I really need to start busting my ass on my novel, then...
