Yesterday I resigned from my job. I've been working there for over six years. My final day will be August 13th.

I do not have definite plans for the next step. There's something in the works but it is not guaranteed.

I never discuss my work here, intentionally, but later I will write a little more about why I've taken the leap.

Sorry I'm not ready to elaborate further yet - I just wanted to update you on this big change in my life. Please keep your fingers crossed for me that the other opportunity works out! It would result in a lot more 'girl abroad' blogging...

Yay! Congratulations, Freedom Buddy. My fingers are crossed for you. I know things will work out and I'm excited to see what's in store.

For the most part people have supported my decision to leave my job, but there are few who are extremely critical. They like to remind me about how bad the economy is and talk to me like I'm a child. Honestly, I think they are jealous.

To be young and free and untethered is a wonderful thing.

I hope it works out, whatever it is. I know it will work out, actually.

And coincidentally, I applied for a new job just two days ago. I'm not brave enough to quit my current one yet, however.

you know i've got my fingers crossed here!

i quit the one true office job i ever had because i was absolutely miserable there. everyone that knew me and the workplace was amazed i stuck it through 8 months (and the 50-mile commute each way was salt in the wound, too)--they all figured i'd be out of there after 2 months. of course those same people thought i was crazy when i left and i didn't have anything lined up. hadn't applied anywhere. didn't know where i was going, but i knew i didn't belong there! and whatever tough times i had afterwards ended up being totally worth it, if only for the completely non-boring journey! right proud of you for taking this big step!

FANTASTIC!! I don't know where you are headed but I know you were not happy where you were. If a complete stranger knows that then it must have sucked!

The hardest part now is not finding work, it's deciding what is the one to take!

I have been "funemployed" since 1996 and can't imagine what would have happened (and not) had I still been full time doing the same thing.

You have accomplished the hardest step in re-inventing yourself - now the interesting part begins...
