Well, I did it! I gave notice today at my day job, so I can pursue my own work full time. It's scary, but I have been so unhappy at work for such a long time that it really feels like the right thing to do, even "in this economy" as the media is so fond of saying. The best part is that someone else quit yesterday too. Now there are 6 full time people, 4 of whom have the title "manager". Need I say more? No more complaining about the boss and annoying/lazy co-workers! No more relating to Dilbert! I'm free from the tyranny of petty office politics. Whatever time I waste on the internet is my own. Yay!
