I did it. I gave notice.
It's done. And now it's completely real.
My boss knew right away -- I asked if he had a couple minutes and then said, "So I was going to do this tomorrow, but then Bill scheduled a meeting and knew I needed to tell you know." And before I could say anything else, he immediately said, "Oh no. No, no. Really?!" and covered his eyes, mock crying. I said, "Yeah." Then closed the door. We talked about my plans and how excited (and envious) he is for me, but also disappointed I'm leaving, etc. He also told me to contact him when I'm back, so I didn't burn any bridges or anything.
I also just told two of my coworkers who I work closely with -- they are both excited for me, but really just surprised. I think the guy who manages our project traffic flow is still in shock. But everyone is super encouraging and excited. There's lots of work ahead to finish things up, but it'll be worth it.
Phew, cross that one off my list!
Speaking of lists, I'll be posting another update of my list this weekend --- things are getting crossed off, baby!
