Last day of work!

Woo Hoo!
The day is finally here!

As of 5pm today my time working at my current position will be OVER!. I've been waiting a year and a half for the right opportunity to quit and it finally came about 2 weeks ago. So, here I sit, just back from lunch, with a full belly and cup of coffee soaking in the last few moments of being a office sheep.

Why did you have to wait this long to quit? You mean you had to wait this long for the chance at a good job, or you were waiting this long to get goods to blackmail your boss for a good retirement package?

By the way, CONGRATULATIONS!! I just quit my job and I have a month left. This is gonna be a painful month to endure, but I'm so looking forward to freedom! I know how good it feels, man. Have a drink for me.

Oh, I'm not saying I'm retiring. Just leaving this job as an office sheep.

Being able to retire at 20... wouldn't THAT be nice

I've been wanting to quit pretty much since I started. This type of work isn't for me.

I got an offer that will triple my disposable income (read: investable income) and I'm not gonna pass it up. I put in my two weeks and I have less than an hour left of that!

41'38" to go
