HR can process a transfer onto my team in 2-3 weeks but it takes me over 2 months to transfer out? Maybe I should just quit and reapply. Or just quit.

As many of you know for the past year I've been an active activist working with the Pioneer Valley Workers Center to combat ICE actions and worker abuse in Western Massachusetts. This is the organization I got arrested with blocking the ICE office expansion!
It's our end-of-year fundraising campaign to raise our general operating funds. If you've ever wanted to support me then please support the PVWC! Donate at the link below!
In the other RPG world I'm thinking of running:
The government at all levels is a series of computers, which are in charge of every level of gov't. They are a self sufficient black box: no human involvement is necessary to their existence or operation.
They write the laws, they pass judgement, through robot proxies they can perform all services like trash pickup or medical assistance, and they can't be bribed

Shepard, uncovering the secrets of the Reapers and the Collectors.
I start the players all as prisoners on the Blue Sun's prison ship Purgatory (the one with Jack). Shepard's actions allow them to find a way to escape in the chaos.
(Also as the players go through the game, I like to give little hints about what game decisions Shepard has made.)
I got approached by some work friends who asked me to GM a biweekly pen and paper game for them. Now I need to decide what the setting is going to be...
On the one hand, I could rerun my Mass Effect campaign with this new group. I've had good feedback from that one in my last group.
On the other hand, I got a brief moment of inspiration yesterday about a cyber dystopian world that might be fun. A world where all of government is just one big computer algorithm.
Work thoughts Show more
I'm at one of those moments in my career where I wonder if I made the right decision. Would I be happier if i had just learned a trade skill? Or maybe it's the fact that I do something for 40 hours a week that causes me to dislike it, and the substance is irrelevant.
I don't think I could ever be one of those people that does one job for 20+ years. I like stability, but I don't want monotony. I want to keep learning new things and taking on new challenges.
