Self employed (with no income)

Today is my last full day of work. As of 5pm, I'll officially be self-employed with no income. Self-employed sounds much better than unemployed, though in my case, both amount to the same... No income.

Leaving the job has been the biggest single step I've taken toward getting this trip on the road. Most people, until very recently have been very skeptical about the likelihood of us actually leaving. While we're scheduled to depart in not much more than one week, we still don't have a concrete plan, yet people have started reacting much differently. They think I'm actually going, which of course is very encouraging.

Now is not the time for apathy, I've got a lot to do before this becomes reality. I figure I'll have an extra 45 hours per week to do other things, like update this site, plan the trip and maybe even read. I don't have a lot of time right now, as I'm headed out for one final hurrah with a few close work friends.... In fact, I'm late now.

More tomorrow...

Friday night was full of good times. Saturday was not. I was far less productive than I'd planned on being as a direct result of the tom foolery that went on on Friday. Thanks to those who came out, and for those who couldn't make it..... I guess I'll see ya around.
