the actual moment was quite anti-climatic, lacking the dramatic exits i played out in my head although still fulfilling in its own quiet way. almost a year and a half ago, i left a pretty cush and upwardly mobile job at a huge but socially responsible company, to come to this dysfunctional hell-hole (at that time, it disguised itself as a "growing education company"--ha!). it was a bit of a career risk for me and obviously, i didn't know what i was getting into. in the past nightmare-ish 17 months i've been condescended to, disregarded, screamed at, pushed to tears at least six times, overlooked, talked to like an idiot, talked to like a "girl" not a professional woman, ignored because i am a girl, and learned that the only way to succeed in this alternate reality of an organization is to be ultra-aggressive and confrontational (read: beome a crazy obnoxious bratty beeyatch). oh yea, its been good times.
so last week, i officially gave notice-- and now every day leading up to my last day (tbd, sometime in early august) is just a ride down "oh yea, make me!" lane. see ya suckas! it's been un-real.
