they’re gonna’ miss me when i’m gone

i’ve been avoiding writing! given i can’t run and i have no love life, there’s only one other thing that i could have been sharing and i didn’t want to jinx it. but, now i can.

i will be starting a new job on nov 12! it comes with a decent raise. not quite what i asked for but enough. there’s opportunity for upward mobility. something that simply doesn’t exist where i am now. i’ll have corporate pressure and deadlines again! yes, that’s a good thing. i’m bored and unchallenged now and need something to push me! and best of all … i’ll be working with red again. and though she’s worried i’m going to hate it, i can’t thank her enough for slipping her new boss my resume and lighting a fire under my butt to take this risk.

i won’t lie. it’s scary. change always is. and i’m not 100 certain this is the perfect job for me. but neither is where i am. and if i’m going to be less than happy, i might as well do it with a fatter paycheck and one of my best friends to bitch and moan with at happy hour! oh and of course the added bonus … i won’t have to see jc every day. some of my unhappiness here definitely still stems from him and everything we went through so it will be nice to finally leave him behind.

i haven’t given notice at work yet. it’s homecoming which means we have a long stressful weekend ahead of us starting with events and receptions tonight. so i figured i’d let my boss get through the next few days before i drop the bomb. i know she will understand. six years in the same desk with virtually no raise likely hasn’t given her any false hope that i’ll be here for her forever, but i do think it is going to come as a complete surprise and leave her freaking out. and to make matters worse, the university is in a hiring freeze so chances are they won’t be able to replace me for awhile. i wish i could say i care but really, at this point, i don’t. match my salary offer and i might consider staying. eh, unlikely, but so is that even happening.

they’re gonna’ miss me.
