My last day in my current job is Monday, 19 Jan 04. Why am I leaving a stable, if not extraordinarily well paying or interesting job? Mostly because the job was not very interesting, I didn't have enough work to do, and the pay wasn't so extraordinary that I couldn't walk away from it without regrets.
So, what am I going to do with my time now? The current plan is for me to try my hand at freelance writing and computer consulting. Most likely I'll have to form a limited liability corporation and perform my work under its auspices. That company already has a name (in my head, anyway), and a domain name, now it just needs to be formed officially.
If neither of those avenues lead me where I want to go, I'll try something different. If worst comes to worst, I can always go back to be an IT worker in the corporate world. The corporate world certainly isn't going anywhere.
