So typical of me. I post every single day for a whole week and then I fall off the face of the earth for over a week after that! This time it was for a mostly good reason...

I quit my job!

For the past 5 years I have been working for the same company (well, technically 1.5 was through a temp agency but then I was hired direct with the company for the remaining time), doing a tedious clerical job that I really didn't care much for. There were a lot of things that bothered me about how the company was run, but I suffered in silence until the final straw... unsafe working conditions. There was a "little" construction accident at work (exactly a week ago today actually) which made me feel unsafe working in the building. The bosses insisted it was safe to be there, but I disagree. I decided that if there was ever a time to be reckless and irrational, that was it. I quit my job the day after the construction incident. I would go into more detail but this probably isn't the best place to do so. If anyone is dying of curiosity, I don't mind hashing out the details through email though it's mostly a long fairly uninteresting story to anyone other than myself.

This probably wasn't a very smart move in a financial sense, but the fact that I'm happy despite the fact that I currently have no source of income is enough proof for me that I made the right choice. Risking my health and safety for a company that has no regard for its' employees was just not worth it. I'm glad that chapter of my life is over with, though I will miss most of my former coworkers. The thought of moving on to something better, something new, something that I actually want, is exciting. Of course money is an issue but I don't want to jump right into another job that I will despise equally as the last one. I have a good feeling that everything will work out for the best.

I have to admit though, the thought of not having extra money to spend is bumming me out especially this week because one of my most favorite shows was released on DVD yesterday.

I thought Wonderfalls was quirky, funny, had a unique plot, interesting characters, (mostly) good acting and overall it was just nice to look at, but apparently the rest of the country didn't agree because the show was cancelled after only a few episodes. So, here's to hoping a find a good job soon so I can add Wonderfalls to my collection :)
