"Note that the word “mute” (from Latin mutus and Greek μύειν) is regarded by linguists as an onomatopoeic formation referring not to silence but to a certain fundamental opacity of human being, which likes to show the truth by allowing it to be seen hiding."
- Anne Carson
My first job... just last Tuesday. I can still clearly remember the look on my supervisors' faces, the way I cried during the entire half-hour I had packed up everything and was escorted out, the moment I had looked back along the way and waved a tearful goodbye to a couple of my now-ex-coworkers...
Maybe it's just my ego or whatnot speaking, but it hurts tremendously, this pain of losing a job - I now consider it second only to the pain of breaking up with a loved one.
Only she who attempts the absurd can achieve the impossible... and then some.
