Actually, I quit my job today. I didn’t do it hastily, however – I already had a job at the T1 mine all lined up. For a while, I’ve been unhappy in the IT industry, for some reasons I can’t explain here, but overall, because I wasn’t getting enough personal fulfillment from the job, and I was also getting stressed out about all the little things. That’s never a good thing. So, I bid my IT life farewell and said hello to a world of… well, I have absolutely no freaking clue!! It’s both scary and exciting at the same time.
Kenneth came up with a very interesting proposition – he wants to start a business fixing computers on the side and he wants to join forces with me – something I’ve been meaning to do from the get-go. Very interesting. I may take him up on his offer.
UPDATE 9/11 – I had to gut this post because, apparently, there’s a corporate policy at work about immediate dismissal if corporate affairs are mentioned on Facebook, blogs, or whatnot. I will say this, however – I didn’t reveal any special company secrets, I only mentioned the volatile situation I was in and the people involved that aided in leading to my resignation. Regardless, my colleagues all agreed that I should remove any mention of the incident because there are some people in the company who would stoop so low as to get me fired from my current job if they see their names mentioned anywhere. Besides, I’m not one to point fingers – while these people did play a role, it was a mish-mash of many factors that made me choose a new life.
