The One Where Rachel Quits

RACHEL: I'm training to be better at a job that I hate, my life officially sucks.

JOEY: Look Rach, wasn't this supposed to a temporary thing? I thought you wanted to do fashion stuff?

RACHEL: Well, yeah! I'm still pursuing that.

CHANDLER: How... exactly are you pursuing that? Y'know other than sending out resumes like what, two years ago?

RACHEL: Well, I'm also sending out.... good thoughts.

JOEY: If you ask me, as long as you got this job, you've got nothing pushing you to get another one. You need the fear.

RACHEL: The fear?

CHANDLER: He's right, if you quit this job, you then have motivation to go after a job you really want.

RACHEL: Well then how come you're still at a job that you hate, I mean why don't you quit and get 'the fear'?

CHANDLER: Because, I'm too afraid.

GUNTHER: Rachel?


GUNTHER: Remind me to review with you which pot is decaf and which is regular.

RACHEL: Can't I just look at the handles on them?

GUNTHER: You would think.

RACHEL: Okay, fine. Gunther, y'know what, I am a terrible waitress, do you know why I'm a terrible waitress? Because, I don't care. I don't care. I don't care which pot is regular and which pot is decaf, I don't care where the tray spot is, I just don't care, this is not what I want to do. So I don't think I should do it anymore. I'm gonna give you my week's notice.


RACHEL: Gunther, I quit.

CHANDLER: Does this mean we're gonna have to start paying for coffee?

I'm not a terrible waitress, because I'm not a waitress. But this pretty much sums up my feelings of late. I don't care which pot is regular and which pot is decaf (or which form is the correct one or which report I need to run). I just don't care, this is not what I want to do. So I don't think I should do it anymore.

I'm not giving my two weeks notice yet, but man oh man I get closer everyday.

random in 2011

As of 7am this morning I had spent 84% of 2011 in my pajamas. I imagine that would start to get old if I kept it up for the whole year, but I'd still have liked to try.

Yesterday I ran my first mile of 2011 on the treadmill. Gonna run my second mile of 2011 after work.

Speaking of work, I still hate it.

My new year's resolutions are:
-Run a 10k
-Quit my job in August
-Make some money selling earrings on etsy

I wish I could quit sooner, and indeed I had applied for a job that would have started next week (no interview even, boo). I realized last week while reading Crazy Aunt Purl's account of 2010, wherein she recounts getting laid off in June, that I really wished I could be laid off too. It's a completely awful thought, I know. But I feel so trapped by this job.

I gave handmade earrings to my sister and mom and my boyfriend's sister and mom for Christmas. Both mom's have worn them in my presence, but I don't know if that's because they really like them or if they want to make me feel good about myself. But I do feel good about myself for having made them and I like them. So whatever. I'm gonna open an etsy shop. I just need a name.

I made baby cupcakes for boyfriend's sister's baby shower. And I knit booties for her too, but they came out really big. Oh well. I almost finished a matching hat yesterday, that will fit the baby a little sooner I hope. I need to put up pictures. Well, I need to take pictures.
