Is it really bad? I'm sure the effects of my mistake will pass quickly. But I'm tired and frustrated and not sure I really want this job.
There's only three things that keep me there. One is the possibility that I am somehow missing the big picture and that management has a plan to fix things to which I just am not clued in. The second is the paycheck. It's big. Damn hard to walk away from it. And the third is that I don't like changing things. I prefer the shit I know to the shit I don't. I guess I always assume that the grass will never be greener on the other side of the fence.
I was 99% sure I would attempt to go back to school in 2007. Now, I'm 51% thinking I should just quit now and take a year off before doing that. I'll sleep on it and see what I think tomorrow.
