Just an update
So here’s the situation. I quit my job yesterday.
(Cue cries of shock, surprise and anguish)
Honestly, this has been going on for a long time in my head. I’m not leaving for a better company or for better pay, I’m just leaving to be happier. My present colleagues are a joy to work with, in fact, it was the thought of leaving my team that made it so difficult to put the letter in. If there was anything holding me back, it was my office mates.
But I’ve done it, so yes. There you go.
And so here comes the tricky part. I don’t have a new job.
It’s all very scary right now, but I have a vague-ish idea of what I’ll be getting up to. I’ll be doing my own stuff. I’m mysterious like that, but things will get clearer as we go along. Not only will I be travelling and writing more, I’ll also be writing more of the stuff I actually want to write about. And that has to be a good thing.
My family is supportive, but my friends have been incredible. It’s amazing when your friends have more faith in you than you do yourself. I don’t know where they get their fancy ideas from, that I’ll be okay, that I won’t end up eating cold instant noodles for the rest of my life. They’re insane and deserve to be slapped. Me? I just want to be happy.
So I’m looking for a photo of myself to show how freaked out I am about all this and I can’t find any. The thing about me and photos is that I’m always grinning in them, and that doesn’t exactly represent how I feel about the future, as exciting as it may seem.
So as much as I would prefer a photo of myself going berserk and looking scared out of my wits, this is the best I can come up with:
