Panic over, I guess. It's considerably harder to turn off than on.
Anyway, the summary for today is that I'm going to sign the paperwork to be rehired on Thursday, and Vincenzo managed to arrange for me to be paid the back pay directly by the Whittier, which means I'll get it on or by the 1st of June.
Breathing would probably be a good idea at this point.
I'm trying to convince myself that going to photography would actually help, because it's getting bloody ridiculous to keep missing it like this.
