For the last 3 years, I had been working for the sewer. At first, it wasn't too bad, and I was grateful to have a job at all. More recently however, my job duties expanded to include some extremely dangerous tasks on a daily basis, and being on call whenever it rained. I have been passed up on a promotion several times, each time with them giving the job to someone from outside the plant.
Yesterday, they held interviews for a job that was exactly one step above mine, while mine is the absolute lowest possition in the plant. I learned this morning that they had decided on someone from outside the plant; and also that they had only interviewed 2 people.
Me and my girlfriend talked it over a few times, and did our budget, we need 300-400 dollars more a month to be stable, but we do have enough saved up to make it half a year or more before money becomes a real problem. So, I quit my job, and am going to try working on game design full time. Hopefully my work when I am not exausted will be much faster and better quality.
