Not me. So for the first time since I turned 16 (just ten short years ago...snicker) I will be without employment. That's right...since I was 16 (including university), I have had some sort of employment up through today. The benefit of this continued employment is that I have some savings to pull an extended trip off...the downside is I might not know what to do with myself over 3 months without a FT job and paycheck. I may come crying back to Deloitte after living in hostels for 13 weeks begging for my job back (and my comfy bed). Regardless, this trip will be an experience and I know I'll be a better person for having taken it. What happens after I return is still largely undecided...but it boils down to two options...go back to work...or keep on going...
I'll close this first post with a dialogue from one of my favorite movies...as it's fairly relevant in my case.
Vincent: "So what you gonna do?"
Jules: "Well, basically, I'm just gonna walk the earth."
Vincent: "What you mean 'walk the earth'?"
Jules: "You know, like Kane in 'Kung Fu'...go places...meet people...get in adventures..."
Vincent: "For how long?"
Jules: "As long as it takes."
Vincent: "As long as it takes for what?"
Jules: "Until God puts me where he wants me to be."
Vincent: "So you decided to be a bum?"
