+ one fucking million

Nobody at work (save for my 4 closest friends) knows I am leaving, which will make it all the more sweet when I drop the bomb on my boss. Nothing like being recognized as the most productive employee of the year and then a few months later quitting. God, I hate my job. I'm not sure I'm going to be able to make it until May. I feel like I'm on auto-pilot.


* 10 freaking million.

I feel like I am in the pilot seat with one hand on the eject button!!!


I just realized that I forgot my parachute. I need to get my F1 visa before I quit !! The earliest I can get my F1 is 120 days before start of classes. So an early May exit might be out of question :-( Sigh, need to keep up the plastic smile for a few more months than required !!

Nothing like sandwiching a bunch of huge life changes together, right? I envy all of you that are gonna relax all summer.

Getting married July 23, but might take some time off to enjoy the beach with my friends before I move.

I think it's less that I hate my job and more that I can't wait to have a few months off before school. As for what I do, I handle contested claims and hope to come to a resolution before the case gets to litigation. <----- Purposely left vague.

I don't hate my job just don't like the work. I do like the paycheck and my colleagues. Hopefully law school classroom will compensate for the good colleagues but who will replace the paycheck :-(

Roadtripping (with a friend to Princeton, with a friend down the West Coast), cruise in Alaska with my family, Crested Butte, CO with my youth group, and spending loads of time with my dog. I'm so excited.

Since I may be deferring one year to save money by working, I will definitely be hitting up Burning Man with some friends.

I was in this position and only made it until April. Everyday seemed worse and I didn't "need" the job. My boss knew I had a scholly to LS and I'm pretty sure he resented me for it. He was a major ass one day (as he was most days), and I wrote a one line letter resigning, effective immediately. I grabbed my plant and put the letter in his inbox on my way to lunch. Best feeling ever.

I finished the semester and spent the summer officiating soccer games, tutoring, and partying.

Finishing up a year in Asia by traveling through southern China, Thailand, Vietnam, and Laos. Then returning to civilization and doing a lot of Starbucks drinking, tv watching, and sleeping.

DITTO! I can't wait to drop the bomb on my boss. Working for the company that I work for is like a friggin roller coaster ride. One minute they hate me and 2days later their giving me a promotion. I'm so tired of it all! I can't wait until that sweet day when I hand in my resignation! I'm leaving mid-july thank heavens!

Doing all the home things with the old friends before the new life starts.

Drinking. Reading. Jumping off bridges. Laying out on the roof. Day Kegs. Sleeping with the old lady. Playing sports. Chillin out. Making enough money to get by, and maybe pocket some for next semester. Raging.

Making money, relaxing. I'm debating if I should take the patent bar.. but I feel like I should take a break from exam practice/admissions for a little bit since that consumed the last year or so of my life.
