Well, I've successfully flipped my life 180 degrees in the last 2 months. In early December I was working a dead end job at a pawn shop, doing soul-crushing work for a shit boss who didn't pay me as much as McDonalds would have had I worked for them as long...oh and I had no life. I walked in one day...decided I couldn't do it anymore and quit on the spot.
I went back to Illinois for a couple of weeks over christmas and spent some quality time with my parents and little sis, and quite a bit of time with all my friends. I needed a mental break from life, and was able to come back home with a new drive.
Now I'm back in school, taking classes that I actually enjoy and just started working at a dueling piano bar as a bouncer. Which, besides being a cool ass job, is a perfect for me while going to school...they aren't even open while I'm at class so I don't have to worry about scheduling conflicts. On top of all this going so well, my roommate and I are about to move into a much nicer house (hopefully). 2011 seems to be shaping up rather nicely so far and quiting my job was the best decision I made in 2010.
