I know it's been a while since I've posted anything, but this has been a somewhat transitional period in my life. Among other things, I quit my job today.
Life is too short to spend time at a job you don't enjoy.
While I recognize my tendency to want to run away from myself and try to temper my instinct to always reinvent who I am, I also can see a corollary tendency to stay too long at some things out of concern that my desire to leave is grounded in that very desire for constant reinvention.
But leaving the job felt like the right thing, and actually feels even better now that it's done. It does, however, put to final rest any near-term opportunity to relocate to Portland, so there's that.
But on to the next chapter!
