Well, my level of stress has increased.

The company I work for keeps doing more and more to cut costs. Earlier this month I was talking to the Director of IT (my department) and he said that we had cut all the fat from the department. Well, apparently it wasn't enough. On the 17th there was another round of layoffs and 2 more people were cut from IT, along with about 20-25 people from fulfillment. I don't knoiw how many people were cut from any other departments. So now, in an effort to save money, the company has started to cut deeper and is now starting to cut into muscle. How much longer before there is nothing but bone left, if that much.

Add into the mix the fact that annual reviews are coming up in the next couple of weeks... And something that is even more important to me, my work visa expires in a week. So with all this going on, along with the US policy changes, I have to go to INS and hope that they will allow me to stay and work for another year. This expiring of my work visa causes me stress every year. This time it is causing even more because of the rising tension in the world and the way the US seems to be trying to cut itself off from the rest of the world. At least the way the current US government is cutting itself off.

We'll see what happens when I get there.
