I know, it’s been a while since I’ve written anything. Much too long, really.
I should correct that.
It’s been a while since I’ve posted anything. Yes, there we go. I’ve written, to be sure. I can’t not write. You know this. But I retreated from the online world, and most of the real one, too.
It’s almost like I couldn’t do it anymore.
“It” being just about anything.
So, finally, at long last, I quit… my job.
I knew when I started that I didn’t have the venom to be in management for long. Five months of it was sucking the life out of me, and after I called out two days in a row due to depression completely incapacitating me, I knew I had to do something else.
Tomorrow is my last day.
The plan from here on is simply to write until it’s necessary to get a grown-up job again. That may be a month, it may be six months, I may go back to school before needing to do so. But I have to write.
I’d like to say I’m going to post more, too, but I can’t promise that. Even a world-champion marathoner (which I am not) needs to take it easy after being injured or away from the track for a while (which I have).
So here’s to quitting, and here’s to trying, and here’s to persevering.
