“I nearly quit today, but I was worried you would be upset with me, so I didn’t.” – Josh
It has been nearly a month since this one sentence has taken control of our entire existences. Every conversation and every lingering look has been filled with the daunting question of “what now?” I know quitting a job isn’t a big deal, but it adds a little bit of anxiety when considering the options we’ve laid out for ourselves.
Option 1: Adulting
Just deal with it like a real adult. Everyone hates their jobs. That’s how life works.
Risk Level – Low
Pros – We keep our cushy lifestyle and nothing really has to change.
Cons – Nothing really changes and we still hate our jobs.
Option 2: Take the Reigns
Find a new job, then quit the old one. Maybe it’s time to hate a new job with different scenery (see option adulting).
Risk Level – Medium
Pros – We keep our cushy lifestyle and hate our jobs slightly less.
Cons – We still hate our jobs, but in a new way.
Option 3: Fuck It
Throwing all caution to the wind in search of living our dreams as world-traveling nomads. Who needs money when we have… life without money? Yeah. That’s a solid argument.
Risk Level – High
Pros – We have the time and freedom to do whatever the hell we want.
Cons – There are mass amounts of unknowns and a huge lack of stability.
So there we have it. We have marketable skills, we’re child-less, pet-less, and debt free. I say, “fuck it.“
