Still working out the details, but a friend and I are thinking of seeing Lenin's tomb in Moscow, hopping on the Trans-Siberian Railway, and seeing Mao's tomb in Beijing.

Seriously considering quitting my job early to live with my parents and spend the summer doing yoga, reading, visiting friends, etc. :mrgreen:

Because of your tar, I'm picturing John Watson saying this, and he's very sarcastic about it.


I'd kill for that episode. (John Watson is my SPIRIT ANIMAL.)

…maybe I need to swap out for a Putin 'tar.

Jealous! That's awesome! I still haven't decided when to tell my company yet...I don't want to tell too soon but just the straight up 2 weeks is probably too late

Yeah the problem is I don't want them to say that - I have to work for a minimum of 2 years or a lose my relocation bonus and I'm pretty much leaving at exactly the 2 year mark. If I get kicked out early I'm screwed.

I'll set a date once I know where I'm going, so my office has as much time as possible to find someone to fill my position and I have time to train them.

I am hoping to go to NOLA for Mardi Gras though. Something I was never able to do in UG because I was always working.

I'm thinking two months notice as well. My team plans out the work-load for each quarter towards the end of the previous one, so whenever that meeting comes it's going to kind of force my hand (if I don't want to be a dick and commit to a bunch of stuff for Q3 that I'll barely have time to start). Very jealous of the people leaving (relatively) soon. Six months feels like such a long time...

This.

Of course, some of you are going to ignore this. I know this because I got the same advice and I ended up reading Getting to Maybe and some E&Es before school started. Did it really help? Not really. Exams are geared towards what your professors teach. GTM is a better read halfway through the semester when you actually have some law under your belt.

I wish I had better plans but likely quitting my job in August and moving to wherever I'm going.
