I just quit my job.

I feel like a giant weight has been lifted, and I am really, really happy. I have two weeks left and then I go to Nags Head for a week so I can avoid responsibility before returning to the Real World.

I've been planning this since Monday and had my letter of resignation ready yesterday. I talked ot my therapist last night about how happy I was, that I have been feeling uncharacteristically optimistic, considering that I don't really have a plan for what I'll do for work other than temping when I come back to Chicago. But, I feel like I've learned a lot about myself in the last seven months, and for the first time since the beginning of the year, I actually feel pretty happy.

It's a really good feeling.

And, um, if you happen to live in Chicago and know of any job leads, do let me know!

Who knew the much sought-after job at NU would be such a let down? I'm glad you're soon to be free of that stress! I'll keep my eye out for any good leads.

Yay Tyler! I will be in NC at the same time as you again this year! Wanna meet up one day? (I have no idea how far Nags Head is from Topsail, but it's gotta be closer than Savannah and Chicago).

And, despite shitty pay, that job at the Newberry Library would be pretty fun. I think I applied there when I lived with you - yes, bad pay, but I bet you could move up the ladder there.
