School and Work

Its been a bit since I’ve written. I haven’t really had anything to share or to work-out by writing it out. The newest thing is that I’m really considering going back to school. I’ve been given the go ahead to reduce my hours. This shouldn’t really be a difficult choice, but somehow it is. I really want to move in a new direction with my career. I don’t get along with my boss or that bitch SS who is just a useless brown-noser. They are never going to move me up or vertical for that matter. The attempt to get rid of me last Fall proved useless and only served to isolate me from my supervisor and HR. Anyway, the point is, going back to school would make me happier as I wouldn’t have to spend as much time there. I would still retain my benefits and pay-rate which is decent. My income would drop about a grand a month which would suck but not significantly hurt. The hesitancy is that there isn’t a guarantee that I could come back to full-time work, which of course they would never allow. I’d have to find another job, which I plan on doing anyway. So I’m not sure why I’m hemming and haw-wing about the whole thing. I get a happier existence and a 24 hour work week. Maybe its the change that I’m afraid of. I worked so hard to get to were I am and specifically the position that I have. government jobs even at the city level are more stable and the benefits can’t be beat. I’m partially giving this up and that’s what scares me. I’m done kevetching.
