I think I've made it clear in my blog that I'm unhappy at my current job. I've been applying and handing in my resume EVERY.WHERE.
I've been on a bogus interview or two.
I never gave up.
Over the last two weeks I've been communicating with a company 12 miles from my house. I had a first interview, then I had a second interview. Then they asked me to come in for a couple of hours, paid, to get a feel for the company and see if we'd all be a good fit.
On Monday I received an email, asking me to come in to discuss a job offer.
Today, I gave my 2 week notice and my last day with this company will be Nov. 21st. I begin a new journey on Monday, November 26th.
I'll still be doing office/administrative work. It's still a small company. I'll have to start working on Friday's - which.. will be interesting. However parts of me feel like giving up 10 hour days will be a welcomed change.. .then the other part of me says '10 hours only seems long because it's such a miserable place to work'.
Oh well. It's a necessary change.
Today, I told my favorite co-worker, Bob. I cried. He cried after he walked away from me. We are both so miserable here, we are each others only saving grace. I feel so awful to be leaving him alone in this - however.. I have to do what is best for me.
The timing is perfect. Tomorrow my mom and I leave for a long weekend (Th-Sun) in La Jolla, CA (just North of San Diego). I plan to relax and hopefully catch up on some of that sleep that I haven't been getting for a few months now - only I'll be sleeping on the beach instead of in a bed :)
