of the world of work, i mean.
i have come to the realisation that my 'new ace job' (random, dis social board, oct 2005) is causing me more stress than is good for my mental well-being. therefore i propose to resign as of monday, relinquishing a salary that is far more than i would ever have dreamt of earning 4 years ago. my mortgage is up for renewal, so i propose to sell up and rent and temp and see what happens. good idea? probably not, if i was being objective, but this job has spiralled me into a dark place emotionally and for the sake of my sanity i think i need some 'downtime'. so, is 28 old enough to 'downshift' my career? i don't think i was ever really cut out for one of those anyway. has anyone else on here ever played fast and loose with their financial security and lived to tell the tale?
