More Big Changes

I gave notice at work. Two weeks from today, I will be unemployed! I tried to leave last year, but for a number of reasons, decided the timing wasn't right. I switched to part time, and that was fantastic, but over the last few weeks, I've been dreading work. And even worse, dreading a bunch of upcoming projects. So, it was time. Now I feel like the next two weeks will never pass, but I always feel that way when looking forward to (or hoping to survive past) something in the future, so I know it'll be here soon enough.

I'm not quite sure what I'll do next. I have a bunch of volunteer plans, and I hope to take some classes. I have enough savings to take a significant chunk of time off, which I know is rare and I'm grateful for the flexibility.

One thing I will work on is my anxiety. I'm doing fine, but not as well as I want to. I'll certainly have the time now, so that's no excuse!


  1. This is so exciting, Ann! Life is too short to keep at a job that you dread. And it sounds like you have planned to be able to not work. Good for you! It's an open world out there. Do what you love!

  2. Oh wow, great for you, Ann! I hope it's a wonderful and refreshing time.

  3. I agree with Tina. How exciting! I look forward to hearing about your new adventures.
