After thinking it over this weekend I’ve decided to quit my job. This isn’t just because I was robbed although being robbed certainly was a major factor. The increasing amount I’m spending on gas and the fact that my car is on its last legs were also contributing factors. I’m planning to move farther away from my job when my lease is over at the end of September. That would also make it less practical to keep my job.
I haven’t told my boss yet, I’m going to tell him when I work tonight. Quitting this job shouldn’t be a problem for me financially. I have some savings beyond my $1000 emergency fund and some online income to help pay bills as well. I’ll be receiving financial aid next month for school. I don’t want to spend any of this money on living expenses but it is available for that if needed. I was planning to only work two days a week once school started so I won’t have to replace too much income. Maybe not having a job will give me the motivation to kick my online earnings into high gear.
