I'm out, baby!

Yes, I finally left my job. My last day at work was November 16th, and for the past few days I’ve been enjoying my return to my old self. I did love working at the ESL school (I really miss my students!!!), but damn, I’ve been there for over 2 years and I was slowly losing sight of what I really wanted to do with my life.

Now that I have the freedom to do whatever I want, I plan to concentrate all my time on my first love—writing. I will also continue to freelance edit and proofread.

My decision to leave my job was tough. I had to think long and hard about leaving a steady pay cheque and entering the unknown world of the self-employed. I know that I made the right decision. It’s funny, that when I made the decision to leave, a co-worker of mine looked at me and said that I looked so happy….like I won the lottery. I guess I kinda did!

Anyways, wish me luck on my new journey!

peace & love
