I finally left my job and it was the best decision I've ever made. My work was incredibly boring - I just couldn't get it. I didn't want to keep doing the same old thing every day, so I quit. My dad always said that if you want to get in this world, you need to be aggressive. I let all my friends and family know that I was looking for a new job. The news got fast. Within a week, I received a call from my cousin Joe, who works for a travel agency. He said that they had gotten in their filing at work and they needed someone to help out. I told him I didn't want to do clerical work, but he suggested we get to talk about the position.

To make a long story short, we had lunch last week. He told me that if I did the job for a few weeks, it might lead to another position with the agency. I told him that I would think about his offer and get him in a couple of days. I think I am going to accept the job. The hours are great. I wouldn't have to get work until 11 o'clock in the morning, and I would get work at 4 o'clock in the afternoon. The idea of being able to sleep in every morning sounds great. Even if I got at 9 AM, I could still have breakfast and make it to work on time. I don't really want to file all day, but if I can just get the next few weeks, I might have some good job opportunities.
