GBU - moving on edition

Good - I have news! Bad - I want to share news but news hasn't been broken to right parties in appropriate ways as they haven't been around to give said news in proper manners, which that party did not acknowledge Ugly - I am going to be inappropriate and unprofessional in three...two...one...I resigned. But my boss wasn't in the office to receive my resignation letter so I also EMAILED him a copy and alerted him to the fact that it was there and received notice that he deleted it without reading it Good - I have a new job! Bad - I now have to commute Ugly - I get ugly and make passive aggressive comments on transit. Me? Passive aggressive? I KNOW! Who would have thunk it! Good - I will NOW be putting my education to good use! YAY! Bad - I will now be cut off from your blogs all day long Ugly - Working for money? WHAT?! Good - More writing! WOOT! Bad - My writing has declined over the years severely! Ugly - I wrote yeras in the last sentence ...TWICE. They're so going to fire my ass in two weeks Good - The Boss has now acknowledged my letter Bad - All he said was "I received it" Ugly - Does that mean I should kiss my ass good-bye today instead of in two weeks? Perhaps that's a Good instead and I should be booking a vacay to Bahamas with Jammer Good - This jobbie thing is doing wonders for my health; I'm eating so well, I'm exercising like a mofo and the digital devil is playing NICE (showing an almost 4lb loss from that high a week or so ago) Bad - My ass hurts when I sit down Ugly - Those tight jeans still aren't fitting Good - This change strikes off one goal on my new year's resolutions Bad - they asked me about one of my others in the interview, the dreaded license... Ugly - onto driver's ed we go! I get training wheels, right?

I know how good it feels to be able to kiss a job goodbye. And you were smart and had a new job first! Go you!

You are such an inspiration to me. Even your challenges help me see the big picture.

I can't wait to read about your driving adventures! HA!

Rock on girl!

My instincts were right, it was career related, that's awesome! You are a brave girl, it takes GUTS to make those kinds of changes and you're awesome! Screw your boss for not being professional enough to appropriately acknowlege your resignation...pffffffffft! Makes it even more obvious why you've decided to move on.

I can't wait to hear about what you'll be writing!

Yay Mouse!!

Congrats on the new job! Coming from someone who just recently got a job in her "field" after 8 years of doing something else, it's awesome to finally be doing something I love and was "trained" for! That's very very exciting!!

I'm totally passive-aggressive on the bus, too. It's a survival tactic. :D

Okay so a huge ass congrats to you!!! And now the Q's - what the heck will you be doing? and where is this job?

And you are leaving downtown - no! So we should totally do lunch sooner rather than later??

marie said...

The commute isn't *too* bad - one subway ride to the end of the line @ Finch.

I'm pretty much swimming upstream.

I will miss the hottie suits downtown.

Sara - email me & we'll set something up. There's even a GDT get-together next week if you want to come meet some other cool WW chicks like Sarah.
