I finally resigned the other day.
have known I’d be leaving for some time, but wanted to be certain before I said anything. For the past couple of weeks I have been anxious about this moment. I knew I’d be leaving but was not looking forward the interaction that would be involved in telling my boss I was leaving. I’ve been having all of these Dr.-John-Dorian-esque daydreams about how it would go (most of the time I live inside my own head).
To the credit of management at this company, they were incredibly understanding and encouraging – there was nothing awkward about the situation. That’s a credit to this company and what it stands for.
I am an incredibly loyal person. I’ve worked for this company for 7 years. I will miss working here, and I will miss the people I work with more. But I’m excited to be coming back to Houston and this was a necessary step in the process. At least now it’s out there and I can talk about my move with people.
