Bumping this since I haven't seen a similar thread for this year. Does the class of 2014 just like their jobs a lot more than the past 2 years?

I work as a legal assistant for a solo firm doing some pretty high-tech litigation. I can wear shorts to work and I'm encouraged to "be unprofessional" at the office. My boss is a recent grad who, although very unusual in his business management, has been rather successful this past year. I would never run an office like this, but it's fun to tell my boss that "I'm going to squeeze all I can out of these stupid fucks (defendants)" and have him laugh and make a reference to anal sex.

I'm a probation officer...I'm countng down the days until August 1st. I have a weird sense of guilt as they created this new position for me at the courthouse; but oh well...I have to move on to bigger things than worrying which offender tested positive for a dirty urine smh.

I'm quitting my energy job on July 21st, giving myself a full month to chill pre-law school.

Definitely have already checked out though.

Right there with you. I haven't had longer than a one week break (and even those pretty rarely) since I graduated from college 5 years ago. Those six weeks I am going to have before orientation begins will be glorious.

Very ready for the change school will bring. After working over two years at a midlaw plaintiff's firm, I sent this out a month ago:
From: [Me] [mailto:[redacted].com]
Sent: Monday, May 09, 2011 10:27 AM

Cc: [Redacted]; [Redacted]; [Redacted]; [Redacted];[Redacted]; [Redacted]; [Redacted];[Redacted]; [Redacted]; [Redacted]; [Redacted]
Subject: Leaving for Law School

Morning all-

I just wanted to let you all know that I figured out my law school schedule and Wednesday, July 27th will be my last day at [Redacted]. To say it’s been great would be an understatement! We’ll pop bottles and dance with models before long.

I cannot wait as well. My last day is going to be July 15th giving me two weeks to pack up life and move across the country.

Best part about the job is I'll be traveling for work the next 4 weeks so I will only be in the office 5 days in the next month and then I have 2 weeks left, where I will be fully checked out.

Woot!!!

It's been three years for me, but the longest vacation I've had is 10 days... for my honeymoon! And I did summer school and work for junior and senior years... so an appreciated summer is long overdue.

Enjoy. I don't know you but I'll take a wild guess and say, you deserve it :)

I've already quit. Just got back from a 3-week long beach vacation on a beach in Florida.

I'm going to have soooo much free time these next two months

My last day is the 30th. My office has known for months. Excited to be quitting, but it will also be sad. Though the job was a dead end job (no advancement possibility) the connections I have made are all but certain to land me a job in law later down the line.

Still can't wait to move away from the traffic and 90 minute commute.

Oh man a 90 minute commute must be awful. I commute out of the city and into the suburbs, so mine is really short. I always feel bad for the gridlocked traffic going the opposite way. D=

Just drafted my letter of resignation earlier this week. My last day will be August 5th. My super was hoping to get one last squeeze out of me, but then I got summoned for jury duty and selected as a juror last week. The trial is 6 weeks. How fitting... I have definitely checked out..
