Station Break-Drama

I am home again but stuff happened while I was in Chicago and I had to inform you of it. I quit my job. Yup..the part timer is now a no timer for the next three months. I got so angry with one of my colleagues that the final straw was drawn and I submitted a letter of resignation. The down side is I believe there will be a little bit of fall out reputation-wise in higher ed because I have already caught wind of smack talking going on. I have a few loyal people who know me and the work that I put forth.

On another note: I am not sure I want to work in higher ed anymore anyway...Update this evening. So just a quick check in my email and I already have three students who want me to tutor them. This fall will be just fine and it will give me some time to figure out what I want to be when I grow up :)

Holy smoke!!! I knew you were unhappy. I'm sure it was the right decision for you and yoru family.

Follow your dreams sweetie. Love you!!

Just a quick note of sympathy. Giving private lessons could be the solution though - you get to pick and choose.

Good news on the tutoring! I think you will be very happy with that. Sucks about the fallout with the gossip--it's sad how childish "professional" adults can be sometimes.

I am sorry about the fallout. But this could all lead to a better fit for you and your life. I will keep you in my thoughts.

Tina, I'm sorry that this is happening, but I'm sure that only good will come from this turn. Best of luck. I'm so glad I got to meet you, you look amazing, such an inspiration!!!

Good for you! I wouldn't put up with any trash talking, you're too awesome to have snarky people around you anyway. *hugs!*

Good luck figuring out what you want to do. :)

I"m glad you are out of that toxic environment...the tutoring requests speak to your talent. Thanks again for your encouragement.

I agree with what everyone else has already said....sometimes it is better to just get out of the toxic environment and start over!

Glad to hear that you had such a great time in Chicago! Wish that I could have been there too...but like Walt says..."you are going to Hawaii, your dream, that should be good enough!" LOL And it is!!

But....sometimes it would be nice to get to go out with just the girls too!!!

Your life will be the better, for getting out of a bad work situation. I can't wait to hear how much better it will become in the future.

Well done on not taking the crap anymore! I'm sure it will be one of the turning points in your life - a positive one! Yay about tutoring - your students love you :)
