moving forward

~I gave notice on Monday. It went much better than anticipated. I wish I could get back those 2 hours of sleep that I lost Sunday night. :)

~The plan is that today will be my last day...reason being that I had already requested next week off for vacationing to FL with Dad and E and since pay is done monthly at the university, it's best to just be done at the end of a month.

~I've been scrambling at work this week to get everything done I need to do. How funny...I spent the majority of past 1.5 years there bored to tears, but Summer time is REPORTING time...so I'm number crunching the days away. It wouldn't be so bad if the data collection system they use wasn't so flippin' ridiculous. Every time I would take a step forward, I would end up taking at least two steps back due to some sort of wonderful glitch in the system. I think I'm finally on the homefront, but it's going to be tough to get everything done by end of the day Wednesday.

~If I have to come back in for a few hours next Friday, I suppose I could always do that, but I would rather not.

~Today I completed my application to GRADUATE! Woot!! Thankful for the friend/classmate who reminded me to do this...especially since the deadline is August 5th. I plan to stroll over and submit them today. The process of completing these documents almost drove me to tears. I cannot believe the end is in sight...5 years in the making!! Of course, I'll be stressed out until those Comprehensive Exams are done...I think they are week before Thanksgiving.

~Another bonus to the new job and having only my one (Internship) class on Thursday nights in the Fall...I only need to get an evening parking pass for school which will save me a small fortune. Woot!!

~I already have a mountain of stuff to take into my new office and I am SUPER excited to decorate it. I have some great inspirational signs/posters and am looking for a couple more to add to the mix. Did I mention I have two windows with a beautiful view? Oh my. So excited. So nervous too!

~Another tid bit about E that I forgot to add to my last post...he cracks me up...he is into asking who bought everything...so throughout the day it sounds like this "who bought this house?" "who bought this cookie?" "who bought the tv?" I think it's funny. Hee!

~So even though I've had WDW and vacation on the brain, I haven't packed a single thing....I guess that's because I'll have ALL DAY Thursday to do that since E and I will be home bound with no vehicle...my poor little Escape will be at the shop getting a new starter put in it...$300 later....*sad face*...but can't make a road trip to FL with a failing starter.


~OK, I guess that's all...it will be a busy day today!

You are going to have a busy week that's for sure. But nothing feels as good as leaving a job for good and then going on holidays. Yippee!!

Isn't that the way it always works, you (the general "you", not you you) worry, worry, worry, and it goes way better. Besides, you have a solid reason - take job, graduate semester earlier, save tons of money. Total no-brainer.
