Did I really just do that?

I officially resigned from my full-time job today. I've been thinking about this for months, but I'm still totally freaked out.

I've worked there for 11 years and to say this was a scary and difficult decision is a huge understatement. I started working there at 22 years old and feel like I've grown up there. I started as a Customer Service Representative got promoted to a Team Leader, then a Supervisor and finally the department Manager. I finished my undergraduate degree while working there. For the past 5 years or so, I've been running the department and leading a team of about 12 people, and doing a pretty damn good job (if I say so myself!). I have so many good friends (including a best friend) there, plus this amazing community of people who inspire me constantly. However, I'm not so inspired by the job anymore and feel I need a change (as scary as that is).

I am going back to school full-time to complete my Masters of Information (I've been doing it part-time), so that I can finish and actually get a job as a librarian. Also, this would make it more possible to be nearer to the long term, currently long distance, girlfriend. I'd like us to finally live in the same place!

So naturally instead of celebrating or drinking a beer to mellow out, I'm working on my final assignment for my summer course. At least it's a comics and graphic novel course so it's pretty fun to write about!
