24 Weeks

November 12th, 2015 at 06:27 am

That is my self imposed deadline for when I can quit working two jobs. I will give my two weeks April 15 and my last day will be at the end of the month.

I accepted full time work at the university and will go down to part time at my current job. I am still conflicted/scared/excited/nervous about what all this means but I have already accepted and what's done is done. I start at the University 12/7 and am talking to current HR this afternoon to pinpoint a good day to make the transition to part time.

This week I was working with one of the men who was part of the interview committee for the job I have been sick about not getting. He said to me "You've been working here, what, for about 2 years now?" and I said "Well, more like 6." and he was FLOORED that it had been so long. It wasn't until I got home and told my partner this story that I realized he probably never even looked at my application package.

I wanted to just quit outright but I would need to find an extra $300 a month and would have no savings and if there was any kind of emergency or problem I just wouldn't have enough. So April 15th it is.

The plan is to act as if I have that $300/month deficit and try to save and pay off debt as much as I can in hopes that I can quit a little bit earlier.

This weekend I am going to start listing things on ebay to get rid of and try to bring in a couple bucks. I will change my cell phone soon but I applied for a job and don't want to change my number until I hear from them or can reasonably assume I won't.

One good piece of news- the 0% interest card for the majority of the roof is good until October 2016, not June like I thought. I still want it gone ASAP but it does give me a little flexibility in payments.

Here goes. 24 weeks. I got this.
