Well... it's done. No turning back.

I got home from my parent's just now (at 1:00 am), so figured I should just rip the band-aid off and call them. After thinking over all the possible scenarios (as well as talking them out with my parents), I realized that the most efficient and productive move I could make would just be to leave a voicemail with my "I quit!" speech. If I go in to their meeting, they'll just make me feel guilty and try to talk me out of it. If I quit over the phone, they'll probably do the same thing. Sending a letter would get there AFTER the meeting, so would freak them out when I no-showed to the meeting. There's no possible way the meeting itself could go well - even the "best case scenario" would be that I keep my job and have to keep working with those untrustworthy people. Going in to the meeting and quitting in person would just be embarrassing and I would cry.

So... I decided voicemail was the way to go.

I tried calling this morning actually (well... Sunday morning... I guess it's technically Monday now), but their voicemail machine never came on. Of course I started worrying... If their voicemail was actually down, it wouldn't be fixed until Tuesday morning after they open and the I.T. guy comes in and fixes it. Then I'd HAVE to call in during work hours and talk to someone.

I decided I'd try calling again Monday morning, just in case it was a fluke and the voicemail would actually work then. Thank goodness, it did. My next (mischievous) plan if that hadn't worked was to drive out to the office at the crack of dawn on Tuesday and duct tape a resignation letter to their front door. Actually, that would've been hilarious. Maybe I should do that anyway... Mwahahahaha....

So NOW....

I'm a free agent and I'm feeling so excited about this! I plan to get up bright and early on Tuesday morning and email my resume to as many spots as I can think of. Perhaps I'll even call places around town and see if they're hiring, although most businesses deal with that kind of stuff entirely online these days.

I'm excited to see what the future holds. I can do anything and be anything and I never have to go in to (that particular) boring office anymore!! Yeah!!!

I have come to the realization that I may have been mis-typed. I have often taken personality tests and generally come up with the result that I am INFP. I recently took a test that said I was INFJ actually, and the more I have been researching, the more that actually sounds like me.

What it really comes down to is the external/internal focus of the different functions (a topic that I'm still trying to wrap my head around, so I apologize if I don't explain it right). The I--J tends to actually function more as a "Perceiver" than a "Judger", contrary to what you might think (and vice versa for the I--P), which is a common reason these two types are mistaken for each other. How it actually plays out though is quite distinctive, which is why once I started reading more about INFJ's, I realized how much more like me it sounded. Basically, there are...

Vintage Travel Poster

One of our projects this coming term is to do a computer illustration of a painted vintage travel poster. I've been Googling some options and here are some that I like. Which would you pick?

80's Cartoons: Then and Now

I was browsing tv this morning while eating breakfast (tsk, tsk, I know...) and ran across a shocking sight. They've remade a BUNCH of the 80's cartoons, and not very flatteringly at that. I knew about Strawberry Shortcake and Care Bears, but check out some of these other ones, too! As an 80's child myself, I've often wished over the years that those old cartoons would make a comeback, this wasn't exactly what I meant!

Strawberry Shortcake: Then and Now
The 80's Strawberry people were reminiscent of the sugary treats that gave them their names. Now the characters look more like shrunken Barbie dolls.

Care Bears: Then and Now
Care Bears (and their cousins!) used to be a soft, cuddly bunch that liked to stare down bad guys every now and then. Is it just me, or do the new versions have unusually large heads? This somehow makes them look both younger and creepier at the same time.

My Little Ponies: Then and Now As with most 80's cartoons, the My Little Ponies were …
