I gave notice at work yesterday! My last day is August 3rd. No turning back now!
The actual notice-giving went well. I had planned on doing it on Tuesday, right after the long weekend, but my manager took that day off, so I had to stew in preparedness for an extra 24 hours. But I caught him first thing Wednesday morning and let it drop. He was a bit, but not a lot, surprised, which makes sense because it was no secret that I was applying to go back to school — I just hadn’t told anyone that I had been accepted or that I was going full-time.
It’s nice to be “out”. This whole school business is feeling more real than ever now.
