No! I'm not being defeatist.

I just quit my job! The worst, most dead-end, lonely, pointless position I've ever been in.

I've been doing it for ages now! A part of me was saying - in this economy I'm lucky to have ANYTHING. But now I'm certain I've done my fair share of this particular task and I'm so ready to move onto something more interesting, useful, meaningful, or all of the above!

I quit my job and I reinvested myself in LIFE! I have nothing to lose - I can go pretty much anywhere from here! I have some savings to tide me over and lots of ideas. I'm feeling good!

Yesterday I was EXHAUSTED. It was supposed to be a workout day but I only managed 2 sets of the first exercise and then only a token effort at the other 3. I slept like a log and then didn't feel awake until about 12.30 pm!

Although, after eating a HUGE meal of the BEST food and making this big decision (that's been coming a while let's face it) I am feeling so much more enlivened.

The only thing is how am I going to keep in touch with that nice boy who I've been trying to talk to...!? It'll be easier perhaps if we aren't co-workers any more, if I can just get his number or email or something.

Seems like an impossible task but I'll put my thinking cap on!

    Good for you! And the upside to leaving: you can totally slip the Boy a wink and a slip with your number and a "call me" (or text me!), and if he's not into it, you never have to see him again. If he is, he'll think you're adorable :P

    Or: book a fun activity with him before you leave ("You REALLY should try climbing... and I won't be here much longer... come with me?"). Bonus: climbing is the best early date ever: good excuse to check out butts on both sides without being awkward or inappropriate!

    Congratulations on leaving what sounds like a situation not good for your soul.

    I need to look for a new job (still working in my situation not good for my soul)--maybe we can encourage each other!!!

    Have a great weekend!!
