It was a really tough decision to leave KPMG, for a couple of reasons:
1) KPMG was my first job out of college
I had friends at a KPMG... I knew the system. I knew how everything worked at KPMG. It was familiar to say the least. Although we all worked a lot of hours (some more than others), it somehow brought us together.
2) I left right before busy season
This decision left a huge knot in my stomach. I felt like I was abandoning my team (which I was). As much as I didn't want to leave at that time, you can't really delay an offer letter for 2-3 months. It was seriously tough. I really liked my manager at KPMG (Ryan). I also didn't want to abandon my awesome staff (Patrick).
All of this made leaving a very hard decision. I typically am a loyal person (not to mention I don't handle change very well)...and I just felt bad doing that. However, I had to put myself in a less stressful position. As many of you know, I was diagnosed with Graves disease about 6 months ago, and I am constantly battling it. Relieving some stress is a necessity when it concerns healing.
Anyway, I just figured I would give you a quick update on my life and everything going on. I hope I didn't bore you too much. :) Please leave a comment.. I would love to know who is reading!
