So I got the job offer. And I accepted it. It's a 37% increase in pay, and there are benefits.
But I love my job. I feel like .. I'm breaking my own heart. I have to get over it.
I thought my boss might have a counter-offer or something to try to get me to stay. Instead, he said he thinks I'm over-paid and he can replace me for less money. He also has talked in the past about making me a partner if I take the licensure exam. But today, not so much. Can't guarantee anything. Thinks that me taking the exam would make more hassle for him than anything else.
But he did say that he thinks, knowing me, I'll hate my new job because I'll have to travel.
He likes me just where I am. Doing the grunt work.
I didn't realize the future here was so bleak. I guess I made the right choice.
