No I don't have anything lined up, yes I am a little nervous. I haven't told the principle investigator, I will talk to her tomorrow. It's a little daunting but it feels really good to have the end in sight.

Finally! Hope it works out and remember, if opportunity closes one door, crawl through the window!

You have bigger balls than I, hope the job hunt goes well. What happened to the lower paying, some weekends, gig?

Oh, you'll settle into that warm fuzzy feeling of contentment soon enough. I quit last week and it's been awesome coming in, talking to people, listening to people bitch about this and that, etc... I can't stop smiling.

Best of all is being asked to do something urgently and using the 'ol:

"Mmm..yeah. I'm gonna have to go ahead and get you to do that yourself." While posting on RM of course...

I sat in a meeting today and actively participated in thinking of all kinds of things that would be great to do, but have zero probablilty of actually being done.

This is a bad time to be out of work. Good luck.
I'm not sweating it. I've got an interview on Friday and I've made some pretty good connections. I've got a couple of resumes out right now and frankly, I'm happy to take a position at a grocery store right now. This **** has been taxing.

congrads ! thats gotta be such a relief to ditch a job you dislike !

ive been sick of my job for over a year now, just dont have the berries to quit yet. stress is very high, but so is the pay. guess you reach a point when your happiness and sanity matter more than a pay check.

anyway, best of luck.

Didn't you just get this job? I am sorry to say the previous job I offered you at the bank is no longer vacant but we do need a new fluffer.
