Do you have a new job? If so put new job. If your not doing anything I would put "personal preference" or something neutral, not "wasn't working out".

What did you do after leaving the job, another job, school? both of those are legit reasons

I started volunteering 20-ish hours a week at the local animal shelter. I'm still a young feller, so my parents are willing to subsidize me until I get to law school.

I would simply say that you opted for the opportunity to volunteer at the animal shelter. I have quit almost all my previous jobs because they were "not working out" but I always had another job lined up, so I just use that as my reason for leaving. I don't think anyone can fault you for moving to something that is better for you, and they don't have to know the underlying cause.

As long as you didn't get fired for embezzling funds or sexual harassment or something like that, I really don't think they're gonna care one way or another why you decided to quit. You're probably over-thinking this just a little.

I think you do not need to indulge that far...You weren't fired you quite. I think that is the distinction.

honestly you could probably just put "personal differences" and they wouldnt give it a second thought. Everyone one who's been employed has had a job they fucking hated
