Breaking up.

Friday, January 9, 2009

So today is the day I'm giving my notice. I can't help but think that it will be met with some relief, the half of my salary that I do still get isn't much, but it'll still be freeing up some moolah. And even though I don't deserve it, I'm sure it will be met with quite a bit of disappointment as well.

The past 4 weeks have been a very odd time for me here, especially since the majority of my job seemed to have been spirited away by the partners. I had two very specific tasks, first to assemble and distribute our client Christmas gifts and second to create and deliver our proposal. Now that I am finished, I have no idea what is expected out of me, since the partners are busy meeting with the clients that I normally would . . . but I'm not being invited, nor are important recaps being given. I'm supposed to be finalizing a marketing plan, I started a few months ago, but as time went on I realized that it would just be my marketing plan, because I wasn't actually being included in the partner's conversations regarding the coming year. It's such a mess, which again brings me back to the relief and disappointment.

I'm breaking up with a boyfriend who tried to do right, but just wasn't prepared for the commitment and in the end just liked doing things the way he was prior to ever knowing me.

Good luck today! It's never fun, but once you start your new job, it'll be worth it I'm sure!

It really sounds like they are trying to phase you out of a job altogether. Good thing you are leaving! Whee!

That's exactly what I thought as well, even though I've been blatantly told the direct opposite.

Good luck and I say good riddance with them - sounds like they've given you nothing but heartache lately! You deserve better and hopefully that's what you'll be getting. Yay for new opportunities!

Katie said...

those kinda boyfriends just stink. It will be sad to say goodbye but I say YAY for your new future :)

I know today will be difficult. Good luck breaking up with the boyfriend! Your new and better future starts soon!

Good luck, you'll be fine. Break-ups are always easier when you have something fabulous (and at full pay!) already going on on the side.

You are going to be so much happier once you kiss this ex goodbye!!

Good luck. I think you are onto bigger and better things, and while it might be hard, it sounds like it will be for the best.

Don't feel bad, they put you into a crappy situation and you've found something better. You're just movin' on to better things.

I'm glad you have the sense not to stay around, begging for him to give you "Just one more chance!". :)

I hope today went well for you. Love the analogy between the job and the boyfriend! So fitting!
