I received the written offer on Wednesday and gave my notice that same day. It's been hectic at work since then. I'm still trying to stay on top of all of the projects that I'm on, and also keep people informed and transfer knowledge to my Team Lead.

School has also been busier. I am a little ahead on the reading in one of my classes, but I still have to finish a rough draft for an assignment on Wednesday next week and my short story is due in 2 1/2 weeks. I keep re-thinking how I'm going to continue/finish the story, but I think I have a good handle on what I'm going to do. It's just up to having some alone time to write it. I have a lot of difficulty when there are distractions.

Spring break is the week after next and I won't be working the 15th - 17th, so hopefully, that will give me the time I need. But, I hate to procrastinate that long and I also don't know if Matt will be home from work those days, so it's better to get a first write in this weekend, if possible.

I'm feeling a little out of sorts. I'm a little nervous about my new job and I still have a week and a half left here to work in an uncomfortable situation. I have another meeting today sometime with the VP as he tries to talk me out of leaving again. I'm more determined now after talking to him again and seeing the "improvements" they're implementing.

But, I'm excited too. Things seem to be going my way lately and there's no reason not to feel optimistic. I feel like I'm finally back on track after being derailed by a layoff 4 years ago. I still will most likely go back to college in the fall and change careers, but at least for now things are going well. Let's see how long it takes me to complain about my new job. :P
