The future...but first the past.

I had multiple reasons for quitting my job. It was not the easiest decision to make, and yes I did not give the proper two weeks notice...but i had to do what was best for me.
The organization I was working for was already on shaky ground(Paycuts, job cuts for full time staff, etc)
Yet somehow they managed to get money to redecorate the community hall, while it is likely a donation, it was a perfectly functional space. One person comments that it isn't 'elegant' enough, and someone coughs up the funds to make it far more fancy, while we the little people are suffering at the hands of some red tape.
Two-The shifts were ridiculous-early afternoons here, mornings there. Not to mention that even trying to get shift coverage was a joke. I at some point gave up even asking, and was coming in sick often. Masking it became an art form. My commute was hard-two buses each way, not to mention that coming home at 9pm while i live in the hood(yea it is the f-ing hood) is not the most safe for me.
Third-I was attempting to look like I wanted to go somewhere there. I was picking up assignments, picking up shifts without question, making points at the meetings,etc. And it didn't seem to make a difference.
Fourth-Double Standards. Ok, so soandso can come in and not come to the desk for 30 f-ing minutes, while she is on the clock? Just wanders around the building, and acts like she is working when she is not. I got so sick of this BS, I mentioned it to my supervisor, but does she do anything..NO! Not to mention said person not coming to the MANDATORY meetings, and gets away with it more then once!

So basically I am done with this. I have said my piece. And I am moving on.
I am going back to school, and that is all I have to say about that.
