- Wedding: April 2011
I am freaking out a little. Last week I submitted my notice to my boss and my last day at work will be Aug 6. The place I work at has good benefits and decent pay, frustrating sometimes but what job isnt? My new boss is so much better than my last one, the commute is not too bad, and this is also the industry I got my MBA for (Human Resources).
Overall not too bad… but I have recentlly discovered a passion for cooking and I want to at least see where it leads, so I signed up for classes at the community college.
Because of our living situation right now (house-sitting for my parents who are abroad), FI and I have managed to save up for the wedding and then some. He also has a pretty good-paying job and we don’t have credit card bills. That is why I thought, “now or never,” since the not-too-distant future will probably hold a house and at least one baby.
I still feel a little bit of guilt over quitting… it feels like in this economy I should be thankful for having a job at all. I also feel a little guilty about “wasting” my MBA. But I also think I can’t pass up this small window of opportunity where I can do this without the burden of a mortgage, bills, or a kid.
Sorry, just needed to vent. When I think about it for too long, I get small panic attacks and I’m sure FI is a little tired of hearing me freak out about it every other day!
