3 months notice..

I’m beginning to wonder why I ever gave almost 3 months notice at work.

OMG.. what was I thinking? Oh that’s right I wasn’t!..

I remember the day that I gave notice.  As part of my role I had weekly meetings with my manager to review workflow and so forth and we were chatting about upcoming work etc… and I just blurted it out ‘I’m sorry.. I don’t think I’ll be here for that, I’m going to Canada!’

I’m actually not too sure who was more shocked.  Him or me.

At that stage I hadn’t even set an official date to leave, hadn’t booked flights.. I just knew that I was going and March was my target date.

It was December 7th, 2009……..3 months was going to take some time to pass.

I guess that I had kinda kept it inside of me for so long and I wanted to be honest and up front with work.  Plus holding it in was becoming harder and harder.  I remember sitting back down at my desk after my meeting and thinking.. ‘wow, did I really just do that?’ I even text some friends and said ‘I think I just gave notice’.

I know as soon as it was out, I felt relief. Finally I would be able to talk openly about the adventures that would lie ahead of me.  The challenges I would face and the new people who I would meet.

The sad thing now is that I still have 3 weeks to go and I’m SICK of waiting!!!
