Now all the work goes to other people and I've got a month to fill...
finally handed my notice in last week after several months of job hunting. I thought it would have been obvious what was coming since I'd clearly been doing sod all work in that time, but my line manager actually seemed quite surprised. I'm not even that excited about the new job but I really hate it here and can't wait to leave.
I've been carefully palming off everything to assistants, and they still seem to think I'm doing a bang-up job.
The amount of time I've spent on here, Facebook, The Onion, The A.V. Club (and lots of other great timewasting sites) is frankly scandalous and I'm starting to feel bad. But not bad enough to stop.
Still... going on holiday on Sat for a couple weeks and then only a month to go. Like you, noise_annoys, I can't wait. I don't even have anything else lined up yet (I'm looking for things and have a couple of applications due this week) but I'm going to have a go at expanding my writing portfolio and networking and pitching like mad for a little while before I go back into the working world.
I've yet to hand in my notice and I'm dreading it, to be honest.
I feel terrible.
But i would be on less money. Ahhhhhhhhh...what to do to do to do to do to do..ddddddddoooo

Thought she might at least try and make an offer to keep me there, but she seemed fairly nonplussed. Haven't told any other staff yet, don't want the hassle. Three and a half weeks to go now and a week's holiday included in that, getting excited.
