Goodbye Corporate Grind

By the time you are reading this, I have submitted my resignation letter to my master at work. I probably did it at around 10:45am, the time I usually stumble in. Two weeks of coasting and I’m out.

I’m moving in with my Dad tomorrow. I’m going to be there for about three months to wrap up my book and prepare for something I’ve been thinking about for almost two years now.

I do not have another job lined up nor am I looking for another job.

Assuming this is not an early April Fool’s joke (for which you are legendary)….Congrats. I hope that your adventure is rewarding whatever it is.

at the end of the day, what you absolutely want to avoid is lament.

the crossroads comes to me, as well.
soon, the leap.

Glad I could be of inspiration. Although, quitting is much more fun when you don’t have something else lined up.

I just quit today from corporate america too!
As did another person I know. Somehow this aligns us, scary to think of the three, interesting to say the least, personalities have a link now.

It would be easier to respect your bold, courageous casting-off of the corporate chains that bind us all if you weren’t bumming rent off your dad for the next three months.

I mean, come on. I’d love to rebel against my big business masters but somebody’s got to pay the bills. Ultimately, you’re still relying on people who are slaves to the machine. The buck has to stop somewhere.

I hope your book sells well, Roosh. I’ll be buying a copy.

“The chains of habit are too weak to be felt until they are too strong to be broken.”

Good to see someone recognize that… Hope it works out for you, though I do repeat the statement from Evan that I hope you’re compensating your father for your stay. You may have taken the yoke off your neck, but it doesn’t replace the unfortunate reality that green paper is still in high demand.

Hooray, jobs are for suckers. Let me know if you need any ideas about how to spend your days of unemployment.

Roosh for 40k or so you could hit Dubai and get 2 notches or so a day for 218 days depending on game lol That might make an interesting book. “The Time of a Thousand Notches”

Nothing wrong with wanting to LIVE for a while. I’m sure you’re not worried about a way to return to the corporate grind once you “find yourself”, but it’s always a good idea to have some type of plan for what you want to do in a few months. I wish I had taken more time between jobs and did some traveling, writing and just plain relaxing. These days, I’m way too serious and responsible.

After the book, I would assume you will line yourself up for a Playgirl spread.

[…] coworkers welcomed me back and asked what I was up to. I told them I’m in the process of quitting my current job, the one I left them […]
