…a surfergirl started packing! yeah!!! I waited so long for this moment :) well, I know – I start early, but I will have to do a lot of packing and unpacking until I’m really done. it’s not so easy to pack for three months, I never did that before. but it’s such a lot of fun! and anticipation is growing immensely :)))
Posts Tagged With: quit your job
my sabbatical started today. freedom for one year ahead!!! :)))
just a quick note – I told my boss today that I will quit. the engine is running… :)
what would you do, if december 21 this year would really be the last day for us? if it was for sure.
quit your job? pack your backpack? go abroad? surf those waves you always wanted to? ask all people you have hurt in your life for forgiveness? tell the person who crosses your mind every day that you love him? make a baby just to know how it feels?
I would. but what am I supposed to do on december 22…?
somewhere in a capitalistic state a girl with a university degree and a nice job decides to leave everything behind – to gain some more salt water experiences in the developing world. she’s very lucky, because her family is backing her all the way.
her friends? some are cool with it, some think it’s cool and some might say she’s a total freak. “you will give up your job?” really? like really really? YES! with a big smile on my face! because I feel it! and at least I should try, no?
and then there are travel-companions who understand you lock, stock and barrel! and they also have some very important words for you that bring you back down to mother earth’s ground:
“just remember that your capitalist job pays for your vacation to diverse 3rd world countries… otherwise you would be ‘living’ 3rd world… which is not nearly as exotic as ‘passing through’ 3rd world – it’s a catch 22, I know…”
thank you so damn f****** much, my dear friend! and to say it with rocky leon’s words: “the sun is shining and the grass is green, so quit your whining…” & “maybe you shouldn’t work anymore…” :)
