This is how I spent mine...
I'm not in school anymore. Actually, I haven't been in school in years, but I feel like I am on summer vacation. Why do I feel this newfound freedom, you ask??? Well…I just quit my nine-to-five. Yes, I am free from the chains of the establishment (okay, I'm a little overly dramatic [not at all, considering where you worked - Chris]).
Leaving my job was the best decision that I have ever made in my entire life. I was basically stuck at a job that I HATED, and I only stayed because the money was great. When I got to the point that I dreaded getting up in the morning, I knew it was time for me to get the hell outta dodge.
So here I am, sending out countless resumes for the jobs that I want, and trying to work on my own projects. I worked full time for so long that it is going to be hard getting up in the morning and having nowhere to go [we can always go out and grab a hot dog - Chris].
On my lazy days, I hang out with my fellow Happygrrl Christine, and we eat Vietnamese food and discuss our favourite vegetable, the bok choy. (Can you tell that we have way too much time on our hands?)
All kidding aside, I am very happy that I have good friends (you know who you are) who have helped me take a risk and leave my dead-end job. I am now given a chance to pursue my goals and aspirations, and look for a job that I was meant for.
I put my dreams on hold for so long because I was content on receiving a steady pay cheque. I fooled myself into thinking that I was happy. Deep down, I knew that I was not fulfilled.
After many many conversations, I decided it is now or never to kiss my j-o-b goodbye. On the day that I handed in my resignation letter, I have never been more sure or felt as good as I did at that moment. I knew that I was doing the right thing.
So, you are now looking at the new and improved Happygrrl who, with drive and determination, will achieve all of her goals! ¤ Michelle
