Crossroads and uncertainity

First off I want to say Yes I am very aware of the current economic situation that our country is facing and I am going to refrain from voicing my opinion as to why and how we have put ourselves in this situation.

It looks like things in my vanilla life, work related, might have a direct effect on my lifestyle as Angelica. The organization I work for has been bought out by another organization based out in California.At the moment my department is the only department that is required to attend this mandatory meeting with the VP of Finance. Now some of my co-workers are saying that I should not have to worry and maybe they are right but, it seems odd that only one department is being required to attend this mandatory meeting. So in short I fear that I will be laid-off from my job.

I've decided to start looking for work not as aggressive as I should be. I am trying to decided if I am laid-off if I should collect unemployment for about a year and finish my bachelors degree in May 2012. Or if I should seek going back to my old job, which is hiring, and work as a produce clerk again.

The flaw with this is that yes I will be employed but I will only have one day off a week and thus not be able to go out as Angelica and worse not be able to spend time with dear friend that I care about whenever we are able to get together.

The best case scenario, if you want to call it that, is that I keep my job but at a lower rate of pay or worse case is I get laid-off.

Being made to wait three weeks is torture, yes I should be patient but I guess it is human nature for us as humans to want to acquire information as soon as possible rather than having to wait.

I'll keep everyone posted as to what is going on with my work situation.
