Sucked Back In!
After all my talk about definitely quitting work in Feb, I've been 'conned' into staying a bit longer. Had the interviews for a replacement today and didn't really find a suitable person so the boss asked my to stay on. Not permanent mind you but probably for another couple of months.
On the positive side, I got an AUD$8,000 a year pay increase!! Sweet!! But have I sold out? I know I will definitely leave before mid next year, and I know the extra $$$ will help on my travels.
I hate being so nice!
Just be sure to use that extra money on something good!
And I intend on reminding the bosses constantly to keep looking for a replacement.
There's still time to change the road you're on....
You should make it clear to your boss that you still plan to travel and that the situation is only temporary until they find a suitable replacement. Also, set a firm departure date in advance so you are all on the same page. This worked for me and when it was time to leave my boss even bought me a nice road atlas to assist me in my travels. Good luck!

Tyler is right!!!!
I look at this as a chance to save for travel, do some researching, get excited some more, and reap the benefits that my stable life has to offer. Yes, there are benefits -- financial security, a routine to stabilize my erratic mind, San Diego surf, friends. I'm just going to throw myself into enjoying these things even more while I still can.
Then it's off to Asia, my friends!!!
Leap, and the net will appear.
make sure you cash in on that...
It's the Environment, Stupid
BUT i know my co could care less about me (that's why i've been a temp for a year and a half) and i will have bought my plane ticket, made my plans, etc. by the point i tell them!
btw how much notice did you give? i was thinking a month so they could find my replacement (and i could help interview them....)
