Woo hoo!  
 It kicked my ass and I never really knew what I was doing, but I took my Statistics final yesterday and finished out the course with an A.

Oh my god, I hated every second of that class. Being finished with it feels amazing

I have two more weeks until I step down from my position at work, and four more until classes start. At this point, school doesn't feel real yet. But the thought of leaving my job is kind of freaking me out. I've been in a leadership position (management, for normal folk) for four out of the five years I've been with the company, and I've had my current position for over two years. I invested a lot of time and energy into my job, and yeah, as much as I bitch about being in retail, I identify a lot with what I do. Being good at my job is something that defines me. Leaving that job - even if it is to pursue something I really care about - is fucking terrifying.

One gratifying thing, though - they hired two people to replace me. Two. My boss's boss told me flat out, he thought one person wasn't enough to fill my shoes. That felt pretty awesome.

I have three recording projects and an ocean of editing waiting for me. Life is good.

Congrats on the A and on having the courage to leave your job. It's hard to have faith that you will get what you really want, but when you take that leap everything has a way of working out.

GO YOU!! :-)
