Yesterday I put in notice at my job. My last day of work will be May 4th. I'll be taking the remaining 12 hours needed to finish my degree over the two summer sessions, and I'll be graduated with my BA by mid-August!
It's a bit nerve-wracking to be unemployed for the first time in about 17 years. I've been continuously employed for all that time. I've always had another job lined up before I quit the current one, so this is a little scary. But it's also very exciting to feel as if the future is wide open for me.
As soon as I finish the BA, I'll be moving to Austin, starting my new life with melomel, and enrolling in grad school at UT. The future is looking very bright indeed!
