Well I packed up my backpack and rolled out of a another town and state. I had everything ready,worked my last shift and then left the building by the fire escape (the doors aren’t alarmed). No one saw me leave,I vanished like a ghost.
Now it’s 24 hours since I slipped out that door.
I didn’t notify my boss until early this morning when I was one state and and different time zone away that I was resigning. Once he awoke and read it he was actually very positive. Telling me the door is open if I were ever to decide to come back.
Living and working in the same place sounds cool at first but there are hangups to it. People tend to forget that you are not on the clock 24/7.
I got sick back on mothers day and I’m still not sure if I have fully recovered. Other events at work that led to an increased work load for me and very little time for myself. Well alone Summer the dog I took in and then asked a friend to take care after only a month. I have not slept truly restfully in probably a couple of months.
I finally broke. I told my boss in my resignation that I was mentally, emotionally, spiritually and physically broken from the abuse work had put me through. And the only way for me to be able to repair the damage was to quit and leave town.
An adventure again I roll across the highways of America to a new destination. This time I will say. I am going from Tampa,Florida all the way to Denver,Colorado. As I am writing this I am somewhere in Mississippi now, headed to Louisiana for a bit before my transfer in Dallas,Texas for the final leg of my trip.
Role-playing game anology time. Part of the game is exploring the map and finding new locations and experiences so you can level up. Tampa was a map I explored,met other characters and earned plenty of experience in. Now I am on the traveling and grinding part of exploring the map. There is no “inn” in sight and the save points are far and few between.
I am looking forward to this though. Denver where my favorite plant Cannabis is fully legal. Other than wanting to work with animals, wanting to work in the Cannabis industry has been a dream. The possibilities are endless and so is the supply. Plenty of coin to earn. I got a knowledgeable connection in town, willing to show me around.
I am just a Dude Going His Own Way.
