I turned in my notice at work! I will be leaving my full time job June 5 and starting a part time job on campus at UT June 8 (in the Computer Science Department no less!). It will be alot less money, but I will get my foot in the door at the UT "system" and will be able to pursue my academic career goals full time.
Am I scared? Heck, yes! My mom and my in-laws think I'm stupid for doing this. My husband says to go for it. My kids are okay with it. So, sink or swim, here I go! Not only do I need running shoes, now I need floaties as well (won't that be an interesting sight on campus!). Wish me luck! Stay tuned . . .
