Not just tax day...

Today is my official last day for Job #2!

I submitted my resignation a couple of weeks ago and we've spent the last couple of weeks transitioning over. They haven't found a replacement yet, but when they do, I'll spend a few days training.

But YAY!!!

I will be going to the office this weekend to clear out my personal effects... I can't believe it's over!

It was really hard for me to resign from this position, because it was a job I did because I loved the organization (heaven knows I wasn't paid enough for all my hours there!), but the recent move really was the straw that broke the camel's back.

I'm not interested in working all day and all night and having people call me and ask me "So which office are you at right now?" I didn't want people worrying about my health and well-being. I don't want to have to apologize for being too busy to do other things. And most of all, I'm tired of feeling guilty for neglecting my family, friends, and especially Yoshi.

We have a beautiful new place to live & I look forward unpacking and actually spending time there and having people over... and there have been all these projects and opportunities I've not been able be a part of because of lack of time. Even though I'm looking forward to a new chapter in my life, it still feels a little weird to know that when I leave Job #1, there is no Office #2 to go to (Can you believe that I get to learn what it's like to go home after work?!?!?!).

For the record, Job #3 (the auction house where I support my Jobe Benjamin habit) is now officially Job #1.5. I'm really not there enough for it to constitute a whole job, but it's still work.

I know the Job numbering system was rather haphazard, but then again, jozjozjoz.com is the land of the silly polls and weird-looking Taiwanese Martian dogs.

Congratulations! I only have one job but starting Saturday I will be basically living there for almost three weeks. I'm going to be rich but I'm also going to be to tired to care.

Yeah - what stkyrice said. ;^D

You and sleep need to become re-acquainted.
And goodness knows, Yoshi! can use your company.
(Especially without having to drive to work late at night to see you.)
