I am pretty sure my employer just blocked TLS on my work computer. :shock:

Bless up. I'm (irresponsibly) leaving my job and graduating from undergrad on May 12th. It cannot come soon enough. What's everyone's summer plans? I'm going to travel far too much and work part-time to fund it.

I'm quitting my job in early June and then will enjoy living here in New York without a work schedule for nine weeks before school starts. Lots of EXERCISE, reading, seeing sights, hanging with friends and sleeping. You can find me in Central Park or on the sunroof of my apartment building in downtown Manhattan. Cannot wait.

I graduate on May 17th and start my second year of my job on June 12th until August 18th - so hopefully in between my break between graduation and my job, I will do some traveling (possibly Amsterdam) before I get too busy (maybe do some photography in NYC & go to music festivals as much as possible)

Mine blocked it for about a year, but a month ago we did a server reset and its been back. Hoping to hold out for the next 3 months before i'm out of here.

If I were to be promised a pro-rata bonus, I would not use TLS in the workplace or during work hours during these last six weeks on the job.

Debating whether I should work until school starts so as to save the most money possible or quit early to get some much-needed R&R. Whichever I choose, it can't come soon enough!

It was already bad. Now it's like, "Ugh. Why the hell am I being given work" [while at work]

I've been contemplating quitting my tutoring/teaching job week after week but I know future me will be so pissed when I'm broke halfway through next year. Also, I'm leaving to travel to six countries for 3 months starting in less than two weeks, so super psyched about that.

It's technically also finals week for me right now but somehow I'm spending even less time doing schoolwork than usual.

I'm trying to hit that middle ground. Thinking about 6, 7 weeks off before school. Sounds like compromise enough

I've told my boss I'm leaving the week of July 10th...probably like that Wednesday or Thursday. I want to have a few weeks to enjoy living down the street from a beach of lake Michigan for a while before I pack up and move down to UIUC. My ability to focus at work is so shot and my ability to deal with the people without going off on a rage is low. I have no idea how I'm going to make it through the next couple months without being like "Eh I'm out see ya"

Same here. I'm quitting the 14th of July and it cannot come soon enough. Only 54 more days in the office, but who's counting?

I ended Undergrad the same way I started. Bombing my finals. Hopefully the trend changes as a 1L

I'm trynna get out in mid-June. Honestly though, the sooner they get a replacement for me, the better. My productivity is not what it used to be. A new person would be so vibrant and full of motivation.
