Good luck on the school.

And may those opportunities bring you much modding.

You will never regret going to school to finish and get that diploma.
You will find a better higher paying job.
The only way to move up quickly is to move on.
If they want you that bad, they can hire you back part time for twice the wage.

With your talents, you should be making $50 K a year at least

They are getting a deal on you and you are getting what the elevator travels in...... :o

Time to go back to school.

You could work part time in Hooters. I hear the tips are good.

Good luck man. I have a BS job right now (EasyTech @ Staples)... I'm planning on quitting too, but not until I have another job lined up. Making $8.25/hr for ~25 hrs a week doesn't being too many mods (atleast not installed lol). Sooo... if you're going to have similar income... kiss the mods goodbye for a while :P. I haven't yet started college, hopefully spring semester, but unless he college calls back, then fall semester.

Word to the wise: Never burn your bridges. You never know when you may need to cross them again. Especially if you are staying in the same career field.

Understood that you are getting paid less than you are worth. Also understood that your boss isn't the best. But three years in a graphics design environment warrants a spot on your resume, and a positive point of contact. It also gives you network connections.

Before I went into aircraft simulation, I worked for an outfit in Daytona that built computer lecterns and installed them in classrooms, government buildings, even NASA. I was an intern there, and after I graduated college they hired me on full-time. But a month later I got a phone call from my current boss asking me for an interview, which happened to be on a workday. So, I went to my boss (who, coincidentally, was and now back into simulation), talked to him about the opportunity and what it was all about. He was quite interested in what I had to say, he knew my degree and how it was a perfect fit for the new job, and knew it was a better opportunity for me. He stood up, shook my hand, and told me that since I came to him first, that if things didn't work where I was going, I could always come back. Luckily I haven't had to take him up on that offer, but it was nice to know I had something to fall back on.
