Thoughts and Decisions

So, I've had some time to think about the situation that I'm in with Darrick, the house and my job. I've come to the critical conclusion that I'm using the job that I have on the Eastern Shore as an excuse not to find a new one. It's a crutch to keep me there. Now, normally this shouldn't be a bad thing. I still get an income. However, when my goal is to move to Glen Burnie, it's hindering me.

Therefore, I've come to the conclusion that I must terminate my employment, especially since they want me to give them a month's notice before I leave. While I want to respect that, it's asking too much of me. Places that interview me will want to hire me right away, not wait an entire month before I start. So, they're going to get their month's notice, do my best to get the files and everything straight before that month ends and move on.

I think this is the best way for me to handle this, though I didn't want to do things this way. I wanted to do the smart thing and get a job first, but it's looking like my attempt to play things the right way for a change isn't going to work.

However, financially, I can do this. It'll set me back a bit, but I can do it. I've already worked that stuff out in my head. And I've dealt with setbacks before. Worse comes to worse I'll have to Temp a bit before finding a job that I can deal with and like. No settling just for the sake of getting a job. I want something I'll enjoy and get good money for at the same time.

If anything I've learned about you in these past few months, I've learned that if anyone can do this, you can. You have friends near and far that are rooting for you and will do everything they can to help you out. I think this'll be good and I'm confident you'll find employment sooner, rather than later. Much love.

I think this sounds like a really good plan, and I can't wait to be done with school so we can meet up for movies and stuff, now that you'll be closer!! :)
