Just a brief update for the few people that actually read my blog-
The blog is not dead. I will still be posting, just obviously not about work as I am still (willfully) unemployed. It’s been 2 months to the day that I left my job, and I feel like I’m actually back to my old self. I’m no longer the dead, horrible, shell of a man that I once was!
Since leaving work, I’ve done the following: (In no particular order)
Married my girlfriend/fiancee of 10 years
Visited family back in Florida
Visited my hometown in the Florida Keys
Honeymooned in the Keys
Spent a week with friends in Washington state for the Thanksgiving holiday
Learned a little bit of how to make my own greeting cards using scrapbooking techniques and stamping
Planned a new trip to California for a week to visit more family and friends
Regained my sanity
None of these could have been accomplished while I was working. I didn’t have the time, nor the motivation, to actually follow through on any of them. If there’s anything to be learned from all this by anyone reading; Do what you love. Don’t take a job because it pays well, take a job because you enjoy doing it. The money may be great, but the price you pay in the long run for you own mental well-being isn’t worth it.
