I did it!

I resigned from my job today.

I've been wanting to do this for a LONG time. Things have been rocky for me for almost the whole 10 1/2 years I've been there. Every time someone else was let go, I worried I'd be next with no chance to say goodbye to everyone.

Money kept me there. Worrying I'd not get another job. And I did try looking but that didn't work. About a month ago, the worry of what would become of me if I stayed became greater than the fear of having no job -- no income and I realized it was beyond time to go. The digestive attack this past weekend proved it, though I'd already decided.

So I'll take some recuperation time and space to figure out what to do with this life -- what I'm supposed to be contributing to this world.

My last day is August 15.

I've been smiling for most of the time since I handed in my letter. Having no income coming in for a while is scary but I'm actually really excited. I picked up a course calendar on my way home. My head is filled with all sorts of possibilities for what I could do.

I'm sure I'll crash at some point and wonder what the hell I've done, but overall, I'm really relieved.
