Today is my last day!!!

Not a huge break before school begins, but the extra paychecks are sure nice! :-)

In the midst of layoffs, I talked my present firm into letting my go in good standing in exchange for 8 weeks of severance ... little do they know, that I would have ultimately had to leave without any severance :D

Last day today - kind of bummed. Having had some kind of job since I don't even know when, it's gonna be weird not to do anything except study.

Agreed. I've been unemployed for three days now, and it's weird.

Bump.

Yes, I am ready. I spend most of my day begging my coworker to shoot me rather than face another day at my job. The one thing that gets me through these days is knowing that it will be over soon, although everything's taking FOREVER.

I actually like my job and its only 20 hrs a week. But even when you like a job, the allure of not working at all takes over.

What I'll be glad of? My 21 credit spring semester's conclusion. That mixed with my job is wearing me down. Come summer, I'm doing nothing. At least for a couple days.

Finally told my boss that I am leaving. June 30 at the latest, unless my wife finds a new job before then.

I take it that you are some law-student sage?

I'd imagine that law school is indeed difficult, and will easily fill the void of joblessness. I think that my schedule right now is at least as time intensive (considering I have next to none).

My typical day:

Mon-Thurs
Wake up @ 7am
Study, take a jog, shower, breakfast until 9
Class @ 9:10 - 3:30
Library 3:30-4:30

Dinner, spend time with family 4:30-5:30
Work 5:30-10:00
Nap: 10:00-11:30
Wife comes home from work: 11:30
Spend time with wife ;): 11:30-2:00 (this is the only real time we have to spend with eachother)
Sleep for 5 hours.

Fridays:
Catch up on schoolwork
Work in evening

Saturdays
Second Job days
regular job in evening

Sundays
Sleep
Couple hours in library


I brought it on myself. I have to take all 21 credits to graduate. I took 19 last semester while studying for the LSAT and putting apps together. What a shitty year.

I'd quit tomorrow if I could, but I'll probably ride it out until August.

I have a wedding to pay for on top of law school so anything helps.

I plan to leave my job around mid July. I would love to leave earlier but I need the money and the insurance coverage.

I would start counting down the days until my last one, but it is too far away and would simply depress me.
