Today is my penultimate day in a job I’ve had for almost four years. I don’t have another job to go to but I have plans.

I’m going to freelance as a copywriter, as a photographer, I’m 40,000 words into my first novel.

I don’t have the words to explain how these last four years have changed me. But it’s not the end. It’s just the beginning.

  1. Today is my last day in a job I’ve had for a year. I don’t have another job to go to but I also have plans.

    I’m going to finish my PhD and I’m going to write a novel.

    I don’t have words to explain how the last six years of my life have changed me. My I’ll put them into writing soon.

    I love your pictures, they have kept me accompanied for a while. (And now you’ve made me cry.)

    All the best for your new beginning,

  4. Good for you for pursuing your goals. The next 2 1/2 years of my life are planned out but I’m not sure where they’ll take me exactly. It’s amazing how 2 1/2 (or 4) years can change you. Congratulations!

  10. highfive! this can only lead to awesome things. :)

    i might have to do the freelancing-photography thing too. life is way too short to get jerked around by other people who aren’t working with you, but against you, and co-workers who are made of radio-culture spam.

    here’s to the future!!
