It's hard for me to focus on work today, yet I can't tell if it's the excitement or incessant headache I have. Everyone has started to ask questions and I'm on information overload. First decision: Stay at my job through the end of April or middle of July? Hmm...pros and cons to each. I have always wanted to journey around the world before business school, but as I think of the finances and logistics, I wonder if that's the right path. My bosses posted the job description almost immediately after they heard my news. Yes, it's exciting and I realize it will take time to fill my shoes, but a part of me is unnerved. I haven't even decided when I'm leaving!
On the other hand, my parents are asking about costs. They have offered to help support me during my 2 year sabbatical from the working world so that I'm not completely under water on the other side. For this, I'm VERY fortunate and lucky, I recognize that, however, I have problems accepting the help. I know I shouldn't as I still live at home, but I do. I don't want restrictions on what I do or what decisions I make and for some reason, I feel as if that's what financial dependency is. Hence, I learn towards staying at work and getting my next bonus.
In my personal life, I have commitments through the end of May and possibly longer, though I'm unsure because my women's soccer season hasn't even begun. Additionally, what the hell would I do with so much free time?! I'd almost be tempted to get a part time job so I don't become incredibly lazy. I suppose I just feel like I'm being replaced already and I still have six months until I move. Likewise, I haven't even received my acceptance package. Is it happy hour yet?
