I put my two weeks in on Friday. Which means in less than two weeks, I will officially be unemployed. Because you know, I have zero common sense and decided quitting was better for my sanity, despite the fact that THERE ARE NO JOBS TO BE HAD OUT THERE.
Seriously. To all my fellow classmates who just graduated college and have nothing to show for you time spent studying, I feel your pain. At least you guys have degrees. (I opted to just party like a college student. Now look where I am–whoopsie! I had a kid!)
But in all honesty, it was not worth the tears or unhappiness and general shittiness it contributed to my life. It also means that Parker might be potty training earlier than expected, as Mama might not have diaper money. (But I totally have money for the cookies and cupcakes* I bought as a spirit uplifter after I quit. You know, priorities.) But I’ll be happy with life, right? Even though I’ll be broker than I already am? And this blog will become “Making it with the Beans, Rice Krispies, Juicy Juice, and Eggs You Get Free from WIC?” Maybe I’ll just go back to playing poker online. (Ha! Never again.)
If you’re hiring in the Phoenix metropolitan area and want me!, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org If you don’t live in Phoenix, but still feel sorry for me, please email me at email@example.com for my PayPal information to donate to the Mommy Needs a Drink Parker Needs Diapers fund.
*If you’re in Phoenix, go to Urban Cookies. (And if you’re not, they ship!) It’s fantastic. I went for the first time Friday, and I asked the guy working the counter what his favorites were, and his response was “It’s so hard to choose when you’re the one making them all.” Seriously, how can you deny something like that? The person selling you your food is the guy who actually made it. I’m not really into the whole cupcake thing, as I find it silly as most versions are overpriced and not that good, but these are fabulous. As are the cookies. Go!
