Gave two weeks notice at work.
I could devote an entire post to this topic but I imagine it would be extremely boring, so I’ll give you the bullet point version. Minus any actual bullet points. I hate my current job and there’s an opening at Joey’s office. Honestly, I know I should be happy to move on, but for some reason, I don’t feel that happy about it. I just feel like I’m moving from job to job without actually going anywhere.
Had to come to terms with the fact that football season has begun.
I sat next to this on Wednesday night. And in case you can’t tell what “this” is. It’s a Dallas Cowboys zombie. There shall be no intelligent conversations, or really any conversations at all during this time. Anything I say will be in one ear and out the other. Majorly boring.
Annoyed Joey by having a phone conversation with my mom during the Cowboys game.
She told me a story about how my dad was at Whole Foods trying to choose between two rotisserie chickens, when a man walked up, took one of the chickens and it ended up being one chicken in a mirror.
Commenced operation “Eat a bag of peaches before summer ends, or mold starts.”
Was reminded that the work week should always be four days long.
Took a walk and realized how perfect dusk is.
Treated myself to a weeknight mani/pedi.
Because I could. You know what takes all the fun out of a mani/pedi? Knowing that the mani/pedicurist is tired and just wants to go home.
Realized I’ve been spending too much time on my phone.
Gave in and cracked open a can of pumpkin.
And made an amazing pumpkin pizza dough. You can’t actually taste a difference but pumpkin has the tendency to make things fluff up. I’m all for fluffy pizza dough.

I love that you had the guts to quit your job! Life is far too short to do something you hate everyday.
Have you seen Steve Jobs’ Stanford Graduation Speech? It’s called How to Live Before You Die. It will make you feel much better about your decision.
Sounds like I need to look it up on Youtube. In the end, I totally agree that life is too short to spend time doing things that don’t make you happy.
One of my friends gave his two-week notice a few weeks ago because he found another job and is now happier than ever! He’s now working better hours and getting paid more per hour. Win win. 😉 I’m so glad you gave your two-week notice. I hope you find something that you will enjoy more. 🙂
Thanks, Kat. I’m hoping for the same.
love reading your blog. so many choices in life, that’s a good thing whether it’s jobs or chickens. congrats on your job change. had to chuckle reading about your dad. 🙂
Such a typical story in the life of my dad! 🙂 Thanks for the encouraging words, Sheila.
I am sorry that you feel like you are “job hopping” but I totally agree with not staying in a job that you hate/dislike. You will find the perfect one for you soon enough 🙂
Love football, we are watching the game right now as a matter of fact, and I at times get annoyed when people talk depending on what team we play, lol!
My mom remembers going to games with a bag over her head when she was younger. Glad the Saints have gotten better since then! 🙂
