Tomorrow I'm giving my two weeks notice. I'm NOT going to work a job that I don't like or work with people that don't like me.

I'm smiling as I'm typing this. Because honestly it's the first time I've ever really put my own feelings first in my own life decisions, AND I AM HAPPY. :D

Yeah, I'm dissapointed about that the "Dream job" didn't turn out like I thought it would, but that's just the way life goes. :)

Congrats Code! Seriously, it is always great when you can refuse to simply put up, and instead go and do what you feel is right. And it sounds like with your qualifications, you're not going to have too much problem finding something that works much better for you.

Went well. I am already home, because I was still in my probation period and did not have to give 2 weeks notice.

I already got my old job back too. Just two days of unemployment!

Oh and I get my last paycheck plus my accrued overtime as well. :)

Personal goals and convictions. Don't forget them.

I've decided that this year will be my best year in AMVs. SO WATCH OUT.

Paycheck... and tax return :awesome:

Due to recent circumstances and also just sticking around the place for 4 years, I've decided to by myself something with all the extra money from this past month instead of being a fiscally responsible adult...

Are booze, women, and drugs still a thing?

Nah, but a new HOTAS is a thing :wink:

Yeah, I can x2 you on that from last week. Paychecks and a little bit of stability, even when your work is stressful (as mine has been for the last month), is never a bad thing.
I finally went to a grocery store today and was able to buy ANYTHING that I wanted instead of being scared of making it to the end of the month with enough to eat. And then go out and have $50 tea while out in NYC and feeling like a millionaire for a couple of hours. That was pretty good.

So yeah, kick back a bit. Do something for yourself :bear:

Personally, I already promised myself that the income from my 4-month contract here isn't gonna go to ANY serious purchases or even living improvements. I intend to keep my costs minimal, and use almost all of the extra money to travel, see people, go to concerts, treat myself to better food, and just generally enjoy myself a little more and, wherever possible, share with other people. Which IMO is even better than booze, women and drugs :beer:

I got my tax return already (which I was concerned about since everyone and their mom was all like "The IRS says everything is supposed to be late this year!")

I haven't gotten it yet, but recently discovered that I've got a little money coming my way from my grandma, who passed away 10 years ago. I contacted her insurance company last week, I'll be getting a check in about two weeks. (Thank you for thinking of me, grandma <3 )

AND I'll be getting a financial aid refund, since I was awarded more than I spent on tuition. Not only that, but I'm getting twice what I previously thought because I got another grant that only posted on my account this week.


I'm not counting chickens yet on the last two in case they're delayed or something, but having a month in which I'll potentially have five times the amount of money that I normally do? I'm kinda stoked. I've been wearing the same pair of shoes with holes in them (which means my feet get wet and cold in the snow) for about a month. After work today, I'm buying TWO pairs of shoes. :up:

Congrats everyone for your...err, financial stability? |:> I think I can safely join the same crowd of financially stable people. Not that my income is big (I'm a student..need to explain more?) but I manage pretty well :bear:
