I walked into my supervisor's office and asked her if she had a minute to talk. (No one sets up special meetings around my workplace, so I knew it would be suspicious if I set one up.)Then, I handed her a cordially and gracefully written resignation letter, explaining that I had decided to further my education and pursue a law degree, and that my resignation was effective in 30 days. I made it clear in the letter that I'd really enjoyed my job, and I wasn't leaving because I disliked it. We talked about my decision for a few minutes, I offered to help find a replacement and smooth the transition, and then I left her office and went back to work.I put it in writing first so that I wouldn't stutter and stammer about it. Plus, putting it in writing made it possible to be a bit more graceful about it (pay compliments to the boss/coworkers etc.). My manager was crushed to hear I was leaving; she'd had no idea.My last day is August 5.
This is my last week of work, and I'm leaving for my first vacation in 3 years on Friday.

My last day of work is August 5. I wish I could have taken more time off before starting LS but I am still in the process of hiring my replacement. Luckily, it is pretty slow at my office during the summer so hopefully I will have time to take care of my whole to-do list before August 22. I hope all of you who were able to take the summer off enjoy it!
Take the vacation! The extra money will be wonderful, and if you don't have anything to do at work then you can spend your time planning all of the ways you and your girlfriend are going to spend the extra cash your making!
