Wanna Beat The Recession? Quit Your Job!

I’m back! I’m alive! And I quit my job! πŸ™‚

Yay! So, here’s what’s been happening in my life so far:

  1. I quit my job.
  2. I’m thinking of doing something to sustain my existence.
  3. Been working 80 hours a week with no sleep on some fascinating new projects.
  4. I’m thinking of starting a new blog in addition to this one.
  5. I have been partying majorly.

Life’s been good. No complaints. I’m back and I quit my job! πŸ™‚

This is perhaps the best way to combat the recession and all that the recession brings – work pressures, tensions, ridiculous deadlines and high blood pressure. Not that my job had any of these – on the contrary, we did quite well in the slump. I just thought that my time was due.

I’m back to being a regular blogger now. I’ve received death threats, mainly from Alice, who wants me to start writing something again. So, here I am! πŸ™‚
