The Choice is Made
I have chosen to leave the company. That's right, I've decided to intentionally make myself unemployed. There might be more than a little insanity in that decision.
There were many, many variables to consider. In the end, it came down to this: I want my freedom. I feel trapped in the monotony of the routine, in the daily commute, in the requirement of sitting in my stuffy closet of an office for nine hours a day. I want out of this box.
There are risks, of course... that I won't be able to find work later, that I'll run out of savings, that the isolation will bring on depression, that I'll die and my poor dog will starve because no one knows I'm dead... but I will take those risks in exchange for my freedom.
Be it for good or for bad, my life is about to change drastically.
