Hi there — thanks for stopping by. I’m Keri and this is my blog, which has morphed considerably since its inception in 2009. This blog initially served as a platform to share my stories from the land of unemployment after I was laid off from Microsoft. I hated referring to myself as a pink-slipped unemployed person or jobless loser, so instead I decided to refer to myself as a Lady of Leisure, hence the blog name which also incorporates the Lords from unemployment land.
During the Summer of 2009, I led a group that offered other unemployed individuals the opportunity to connect with peers through organized social and job-search activities. We called ourselves the Lords and Ladies of Leisure (or LOL for short).
After much soul-searching (while wearing house pants of course!), I decided to transition into a new career and enrolled in massage school that Fall, where I learned an entirely new skill-set and upon graduation in the Fall of 2010, I launched into my massage career at a clinic in Ballard.
After working in the massage field for about five months, I soon realized that massage, while being a fulfilling and rewarding career, couldn’t support me financially, particularly since I owned a home. Therefore, I decided to transition back into marketing hanging up my LMP hat for the time being.
Life — what a ride! I’ve learned a lot, most importantly, the ability to just roll with it because change is inevitable. Adapt or die.
