I am job.  
I gave notice for the first time ever on Monday. All my other jobs I have left because it was time to move on (I graduated or the summer ended), although I did decline to return to the Helpdesk after summer vacation, back in... a long time ago. Alright, I figured it out, that was 2003. That wasn't so much giving notice as me emailing the manager saying that I wouldn't be returning in the fall.

I am waiting for the paperwork (official job offer) from Uconn, having gotten the unofficial offer over the phone. However, we have to work out the wedding and honeymoon time this summer, because according to the 'rules', you don't get to take vacation time for the first six months of employment. So I have to negotiate into the paperwork that it's okay for me to take unpaid time off for a week and a half in the middle of July.

To sum up:
Reduce commute from an hour to 10 minutes - Good
Mad state benefits - Good
Get a fun raise - Good
Work somewhere that closes when the roads contain snowy death - Extra good (I almost clipped a telephone pole on the way in this morning, and observed several other people unable to drive up a hill)
Work with friends, possibly regain semblance of social life - Good
Even better employee discount - Good
Having to work out time off for wedding and honeymoon - *shrug* It's not like I'm going to need it again (time for the wedding, not vacation time in general)

In other news, I know a company in Enfield, CT that needs a good desktop/store support guy. : )

Systems Administration for the Division of Student Affairs. I will be the youngest/newest of three, which is good from a learning perspective and less good from the grunt work b/c I'm low man on the totem pole perspective. But I really don't anticipate that to be too bad.
