pay no attention to the insecure woman behind the curtain...

Ok, yeah, so I'm still insecure. I really have to remember that I should be doing this to express my feelings, not for anyone else's approval/comment/criticism. (That being said, though, thank you for your kind comments!) In the struggle with my 8th-grade "why doesn't anyone want to sit at my table for lunch?" feelings, however, I forgot to blog about my most important news: I've turned in my resignation. My last day will be August 4.

Everyone there keeps asking where I'm going and my standard answer is "nowhere, fast!" with a big grin on my face; I guess technically this would be considered "pursuing other opportunities" or "exploring my options." These options may involve nothing more than temping or working retail, but I think it's what I need. I can't handle the stress anymore. When getting yelled at by an end user brings me to tears (or as G said, when a 36-yr old thinks she's having a heart attack), it's time -- well past it, probably -- to do something else. And so I will.

I'm so jealous and so excited for you!

I told Jim the other day I'd rather work at Starbucks than what I'm doing. At least there the benefits are good!

Good luck on your adventure!

Dear Lisa, congratulations on this step! It sounds eminently right for you.

And I hear you on the hope and frustration and the universe laughing at hopeful symptoms... May it happen for you, soon.
