Today is my last day. I think my boss is getting annoyed at the grin on my face.

7 days (if you count today)! I can't wait. I also see people getting annoyed with how happy I am to be leaving.

4 work weeks left. I have no idea how I am going to make it through them.

I literally stay up till 2 or 3 am and then wake up 15 minutes before I have to be at work. I space out most of the day and generally day dream about LS.

It depends. Do you want to go out with guns blazing, or do you feel affection/loyalty for your current employer?

Depends. I gave four weeks and was really nice to everyone. They offered to hook me up with summer employment or discuss this possibility with their lawyers if I prefer.

If you hate your current employer, you can pretty much just walk out. If you need/want them for references, be nice, give notice, and try to finish up all of your work before you go.

By the way, less than 5 days to go!

the "proper" way to quit your job is to schedule a meeting with your immediate supervisor in private, tell them your intentions and give them a letter of resignation. etiquette demands 2 weeks notice.

at that point, a number of things can happen:

A) go clear your desk (the harsh way, but it happens at some places)

B) hmm so what will it take to stay? 25% raise?

C) ok. you will have to hand-off your stuff to X,Y,Z. (the typical)

I have two weeks to go. This week will suck, but for my last week my bosses will be on vacation so the office will probably be pretty chill and I can just surf the web without anyone caring.
