Why don't you just explain to your employer that you can't work there anymore? Then he'll probably just let you go.

2 months is pretty pathetic. Try to stay until January at least. Give notice; don't be a jerk and just stop showing up. Treat your employer as you would want to be treated.

Definitely give in your two weeks rather than just leaving, that will look bad on the next job application if you just stop showing up.

Go ahead and give your two weeks notice today (Friday, December 20, 2013) Write a letter explaining that it is a two-week notice, and that [ specific day ] will be the last day you work there. You do not have to say why in the letter, but you can say you have to spend more time on your school homework. That way you will be available to work during the remaining pre-Christmas days and a few days afterward. The employer is under no obligation to keep you during that entire time. Once you have worked your last day, talk to them about working for them again after the school year is over.
