~*As for me...*~

So, something big happened this month. After several months of deliberation, I decided that the best thing for me would be to quit my job... so I finally did. My last day was Wednesday. I don't have another job yet, but I do have an interview on Tuesday for a part time gig, so... *shrugs* In the meantime, I'm going to be taking care of business around here. Organizing my place, donating stuff to the thrift store, and selling crap online. And, of course, spending a little bit of extra time WRITING.

Some people think I'm a bit crazy to make this kind of decision. "It seems ridiculously dangerous to just stop working, right?" And you think I don't know this? Yes, I need a job to pay the bills. Yes, I can't just stay unemployed for long. But, I need this. I need a break from adulthood. I spent TEN YEARS in pharmacy, having a love/hate relationship with the job, and always being placed in situations that frustrate me to no end. I had to get out before I lost the last shred of my sanity. So, it was either stay and lose all the joy left in my life, or leave and be happy again.

I chose happiness.

I know that I'll make it, no matter what happens or how it happens or when it happens. I'm an industrious and clever woman--and I can do anything I set my mind to. ANYTHING. It can all be summed up in this:


And that's that!

Other than that little thing going on, I haven't been up to much else. My apartment has been torn apart, but I'm actually starting to get somewhere. Oh, and I've been marathon watching Home Improvement on YouTube (did you know you can watch the WHOLE SERIES on YouTube???) and Veronica Mars. If you want to see some hilarious quotes from either show, you can follow me on Twitter--because I've been quoting them both non-stop. I just finished season 1 of Veronica Mars (probably about the 15th or 20th time I've watched it, or more), so I'll probably take a break from that so that I don't watch everything too fast (seeing as there are only 3 seasons altogether). I still need to catch up on so many other shows (Gilmore Girls and original CSI for example). It's good to have on while I'm working on stuff around here. ;)

And that's about it! I hope everyone's been having a great year!

  1. Whew! Scary move but I can totally get the feeling behind it. Sometimes you just have to do something for your own mental well being like that. Good luck with the interview!

    1. Scary, indeed! And thank you! I'll be leaving in a little bit for it. *fingers crossed*
