Yes, friends, you read that correctly - this past Friday I handed in my two weeks notice at Bank of America, where I've worked for the past year and nine months. Last week I was offered a job at Shopkick, a mobile shopping startup here in the Bay Area. Although I absolutely love my coworkers at Bank of America and am so appreciative of the comfortable life my job has enabled me to live here in San Francisco, I cannot wait to embark on this new journey with Shopkick. Every time I think about how I will now get to spend all day working with retailers in pursuit of making the shopping experience better for everyone, I get a thrill of excitement - I don't really know what it's like to love your job, but I think I'm about to find out!
If I had handed in my two weeks notice on a non-Friday weekday, this is the dress I would have worn (last seen here). However, since it was a Friday, I actually wore this. BUT you can bet your last dollar that I will spend the next two weeks getting as much wear out of my business casual clothing as possible before I transfer over into the casual startup environment, where my work clothes will consist of jeans, jeans, and more jeans! What's not to love about that?
