Why I dreamed my boss poisoned me

Work is good, it has been great, it has been stressful, it has made me mad, but always good. Recruiting is my calling and I love my HR team. But last night I dreamed my boss poisoned me. I know exactly why I dreamed that:

I put in my notice 15 minutes ago. I just quit my job.

Ahhhhh adrenaline is still coursing through my body, I can’t believe I did that, I hope I made the right decision! I’ve never left a job I liked before so I was super stressed about putting in my notice, even though my boss is a lovely woman.

I’ve always always known my previous positions weren’t right for me, but this is really hard and just has to be a completely selfish move. I got an offer for what has been my dream job for the past 5 years. Still in recruiting, still in DC, but just…well, better overall. Bigger HR team, more sophisticated on campus recruiting programs, and one of the most respected finance firms in the world.

So yeah, things are pretty crazy around here.

We also just got back from our FOURTH wedding of the summer (in beautiful Newport, RI, never been before, but can’t wait to go back) and still have another THREE weddings to go in the next THREE WEEKS.

As much as I miss blogging and do NOT want to stop, I’m on too much of a wild ride in my real life to hang around the interwebs.

For now! I’ll be back someday!
