I just quit my job without anything else lined up because it was too low paying. WOOOO!
Okay I lied a bit, I DO in fact have something else KINDA lined up, but not confirmed yet. So without a confirmed written offer, it's like leaving without having anything lined up.
I just couldn't take it. I couldn't force myself to get up. I saw the alarm, and I turned it off. I actually have 4 alarms all within the same hour since I tend to do that a lot, and I turned ALL of them off. I quit today, and I'm not going back. When my employer calls and asks if I'm okay, I'm not answering. I'm a ghost now. That job was just SO low paying compared to the jobs I had before and the education I have should at least put me at a higher salary than that. It was soul crushing.
Thankfully I have enough savings to last me a year. Still... I hate the idea of having to touch my savings, but I couldn't take that ****ty low paying job anymore. It reduced my self esteem by the day. At family gatherings, when they asked me what I do for work, I had to tiptoe around it and omit so many details. I was so ashamed. I lied to my mom about how much I was getting paid the entire time. To this day, she doesn't even know.
She doesn't know I didn't go to work today. When she checks those security cameras, she'll see my car is still in the driveway. She'll know. I'll just have to come clean.
I wish I kept the job I had earlier this year. I was good at it, got constant kudos, caught on very quickly, it was in my field and it was decent money. I ****ed up. Hopefully I can find something like that again, but it probably won't be for a while.
I hate life.
