I quit my job a couple of weeks ago, and man does it ever feel good to be taking a break. I craved more balance and flexibility in my life, and after some long conversations with my boyfriend, friends, and family I decided to take the plunge and hand in my notice in the beginning of January. It’s the first time I’ve quit a job without having something else lined up so it was terrifying, to say the least. To give up a steady income (with amazing benefits!) with a stable job (with a pension!) in a place that is constantly named one of the most expensive cities to live in isn’t an ideal situation, but with careful budgeting and (fingers crossed) a few potential projects on the go, I just had to do it.
