God, quitting my job today felt like breaking up with someone. Except, it was two someones and they had the saddest looks on their faces when I said I was leaving. It was terrible, but I had to do what was right for me.
Well. Tomorrow I have to do something I’ve never done before — leave my job. And there’s no need to go into details beyond it’s simply not working for me. I am not going to waste any more of my time there (Two weeks is more than enough to know that this was the wrong move).
However, I am leaving with something already set up for Monday! Something even better!
I have been hired at a digital agency in Brooklyn as a Community Manager for a global media/tech company! I’m so excited because A. My good friend works there B. The company is one of the only agencies I’ve ever thought about joining (I’m mostly anti-advertising now) and C. The client is new to the agency and a really, really big deal for me to be working on.
This feels like the right choice. Before I was hired at my (now former) job, I felt iffy deep down, and well, I guess I was right. I should have listened to my intuition, but the prospect of joining an innovative industry pushed me forward.
So, let’s try this first real job thing once more. Wish me luck on Monday?
"If a Disney princess had night terrors, the story of Sansa Stark might be what woke her up screaming. Often overlooked in favor of her killer kid sister, the elder Stark sibling has had all her illusions about the world, and her safety in it, shattered. But her quiet, innate political shrewdness and emotional strength have enabled her to survive in a royal court that likely would have cost every other member of her family their heads. She’s the show’s best-kept secret."
