Next Wednesday is my last day. And I took today off to recover from the holiday weekend, and to practice doing nothing. I think I can handle this.

My boss gets back from a 3 week vacation on Thursday. Also insane. On top of that, this upcoming weekend is one of our biggest event production weekends of the year, which means my office is going to fall apart by Friday.

Going to die. 18 working days left... not sure I can make it.

I'm jealous! I have one more official week and then plan to come in some and do some work from home afterward so I can justify spending money on a new laptop.

Just officially quit Wed. Strangely enough, I was surprised how much I felt like I was going to miss the place.

On principle, you should leave one minute early.

Funny...I close my eyes and imagine myself frantically putting on mascara/spilling coffee/studying while driving through insane traffic to get to class on time. Spending nights alone in my parents house surrounded by books...sleep deprived and out of shape. Sigh.

I have two weeks left at my job and I'm savoring every last moment. Spent last night at a rooftop bar on the Hudson, sipping free champagne and eating lobster. I can't remember why I decided to go to law school.

Apparently, I get to leave as soon as everything on my desk is done. That's about 2 minutes ago, so I'm on my way out any second now. It's odd. I'm glad to be done with the shit work, but I'm still a little sad to be leaving. They did say to check with them whenever I have free time, they might have some freelance work I can do. That would be nice.

Still on sabbatical and thinking of ways to effectively negotiate a severance package just prior to my announcement that I will be leaving ... my last day will be August 21st.

I think I speak for all the high school drop outs on this site when I say "Heeeeeey!"
