I quit my job and going back to school!

Ok I haven't been able to tell you guys this until I told my boss as you never know who reads what on the internet but yesterday I made it official and gave my company my 2 weeks notice. I am as some of you know a database professional but I really don't like it and I dread work so I decided to do something about.
I am moving a couple of hours north to go to a school in Los Angeles that specialize in what I am interested in which is Motion Graphics. The program is only 10 month long but it is intense with classes from 9AM - 6PM. I am excited as it is something I have wanted to do for a long time!
Little nervous but very excited. I already got an apartment in central Hollywood and paid tuition. All we have left to do is the actual move and finding my wife a teaching job!
Wow feel like a big burden is lifted off me even if I will be a poor student again (haven't been to college for years)...

Well done Jonas!

You have plenty of guts - I don't think I could go back to studying now.

I am sure you will do really well, I know how much you've wanted this.

Good luck!

Re: I quit my job and going back to school!

good luck, wish i had your guts.
I'm always moaning about my job, but I'm a chicken to do anything about it or just lazy.
once again all the best with the studying

The best of luck. It really is a brave and admirable thing to do to follow something you believe in.

If you get desperate I'm sure we will all chip in to pay your bills from Gamesey, I'm sure you'll pay us back ten fold when your rich and famous!!

You're pursuing your dream mate, and that is ALWAYS the right way!

If you need help with motion graphics, don't hesitate to ask me anything

Congrats about that, Jonas. I'm sure a lot of us wouldn't have the heart to do that, leaving a steady job to go back to school, but you sure do, obviously.

Good luck from me as well, especially with a timeframe like that. How many days of class do you have a week?
