So I decided to stay with the department. It basically came down to the money. Which, is sad in a way, but also, I think the more responsible decision. I’m sure I could have lived on less, but the fact is, I don’t hate my job enough to want to.
Also, now I can take a vacation in November. And be sick for up to three weeks. (I’m secretly hoping for a mild case of swine flu.) And have a personal day. And get to take off President’s Day.
Oh right, and also help children and stuff. Oh, that.
