No shit, the company has been great to me. The culture there is really down-to-earth and void of a lot of the bullshit office politics you find in so many place. My job has also let me travel to a bunch of places I’ve never been, and the company has given me more flexibility than I thought was possible with a 9-5. It’s been a lot of fun, and I’m sure I’m going to miss it.
So why am I leaving?
Simply put, it’s time for something new. There are things I want to do that I haven’t done yet, and I’m not getting any younger, so I mind as well get cracking.
So what’s the plan?
Well, I’m not sure yet. I mean, yeah, I’ll be working on some things that I’ve been chiseling away at for a while, and hopefully finish them in time for my 31st birthday — I think that would be a nice birthday present to myself.
But career-wise, I don’t know what my next move is going to be. Maybe I’ll freelance, maybe I’ll get an offer I can’t refuse, or maybe I’ll change professions altogether.
In any case, it should be interesting…
