Recently, a friend of mine told me that I must be bored. He couldn’t wrap his head around the idea of not going into the office everyday. In the absence of a boss dictating requirements does boredom eventually set in? Not for me.
This summer I drove up to Vancouver, visited friends and went to an aquarium. Didn’t need to request time off to the boss. I just went.
I have lots of interests and many projects that I’m either working on or planning to work on in the near future. Surrendering my life to a commute and an office building is not something I’m interested in doing at this time. I simply have too many things I want to do.
Will I ever rejoin the cubicle posse? Anything is possible, but it won’t be anytime soon. A new job would would have to meet my 4 requirements of a great job or I wouldn’t consider it. As for now, I have savings, no debt and my investment thesis is unfolding. I don’t need a W-4.
