So I just emailed my contacts at the apprenticeship with my notice of resignation. I am very proud of how professional I sounded in the email. Anyhow, I gotta say, I am so happy knowing that my parents both approve of my decision. Also, I told them how it just isn't a fit for me financially right now. They agreed with me. I was kind of shocked that I did not receive the "quitter lecture" from either of them. But they supported my decision as an adult, and I just have to say, I love that!
