    Well, it had to happen! After almost 2 years at a job I love, I have realized that I have no future there, and I really need to make more $$$ etc etc

    SO I am going tomorrow to get a new job at the casino nearby..(in hotel, I imagine, not the games)

    Has anybody done this lately, just completely changed their day to day life? Im choosing to do this, but I feel like I have to--

    Go for it. If you're getting a good feeling about the change, and you think you need it, DO IT!

    Good luck! [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]

    Change can be very good at times...or alot of good can come out of change.
    I use to work for Pepsi Cola and things were okay. But I needed more somehow(money was very good though).

    Its ok Ms. Irony, Seenbads here for ya

    Seriously though. A few years ago, I went from being a dumb golf pro to a techy position implementing software and training at client sites. I was like "what the FUCK am I doing"! That .com fell under, but it put me on a profitable path and I learned...while your young, stay OUTSIDE your comfort zone and push yourself. It may be a bit stressfull, but staying outside your box makes you successfull. After that I went into project management. Again, totally different field. That company fell too, but with the experience I gained, it just made me that much more valuable in the market place. Now I dont worry about company's fallen under. I know I have value and that people are willing to pay for my experience.

    Go fer it!! [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]

    (If you dont, I'll spank ya!)

    I say go for it for if you don't you'll regret it. When I left college I was going to live in London and be a writer. I packed all my belongings bought a one way ticket and went -- only to be arrested and deported so I wouldn't "sponge off the English govt."

    Twenty years later I decided I really wanted to live in Los Angeles. So I started applying for jobs in LA, flying back and forth between NY and LA whenever I had an interview. Then I was laid off from my job in NY and one of the jobs in LA I had applied for came through.

    Bottom line is...a year and a half later I'm living in LA with a good job (knock on wood) and a new life and a sense of well-being that I haven't felt EVER.

    JS,

    Last year, September, I walked away from a high paying job in the advertising industry, with no job prospects lined up.

    Why? Because I was unhappy with the business. I could have stuck it out and easily gone further, but the fact of the matter was I didn't want that to be my legacy - if I ever have one.

    So I ditched it all, left New York city with no plan, no viable options. Just decided to see what I could do.

    Well, this wasn't the year to be doing stuff like that, and it wasn't easy And we took a substantial financial hit (thank God for the 99 cent store) but I managed to change careers and I'm CONSIDERABLY happier - not making anywhere near as much money, but who cares? Sometimes we just need to kick ourselves in the ass and see what happens.
    Look at me, I'm a famous historian - outta my way!

    I haven't figured out how to navigate this place yet, and I inadvertanly found myself in a thread started by Jay's Spokesperson right before I entered this one, so that name was on the top of my mind. Whoops.

    i certainly understand change, especially recently...
    after working for my father-in-law for 4 1/2 years, i'm asked to quit (econmy bad, downsizing the shop, etc.)...
    ok, i quit, and start a new job making 1/3 of what i'm used to...
    he gets sick (father-in-law) and ends up in the hospital, and begs me to quit new job and come back...
    so i do, just in time to close down and relocate his entire business in one weekend (it was a 13 bay automotive center)...
    spend a whole week getting the new place going and organized for only 1/2 the pay of what i was originally making...
    after 11 days in the hospital, he gets out, shows absolutely no appreciation and tells me i have only 2 weeks to find a new job AFTER BAILING HIS SORRY ASS OUT!!!
    so now, here i am looking for a job in an economy that is hurting and all this after being off work for 8 weeks this summer after a week long stay in the hospital...
    so, i guess what i'm saying, is financially, my ASS IS FRIED...
    not to mention the promises that were made by him that have already been broken...


    oh well...
    ain't life a bitch...
