Moving On

A year or so ago, I thought if I ever get cut from my job, I would just travel for awhile, write, take pictures and live off my severance for a while.  Maybe it’ll be in some tropical country where I can veg out in some beach hut (wait… I need a real toilet).  I’ll just wander from city to city and enjoy some solo travel like I used to do.  Although I have to confess, I’ve gone used to nice hotel rooms and traveling in at least premium economy.  Maybe I will do something like this.  Who knows.  If I show up at your door step, I hope I won’t scare you.  Oh dear readers, I’ve been stalking all of you so I know where you live.

It’s taken me awhile to get used to not doing anything at work.  I have time to go for a walk in the morning if I wake up early.  I can even sneak out at lunch time for a walk or read for a few minutes.  I pretty well disconnect at 5PM.  I don’t check emails at night because no one sends me anything.  In fact, I’m like a guy on death row.  No one at work talks to me aside from my immediate team.

So I have one more month before they kick me out the door.  I’ll be living on my savings and whatever severance I will get.  I’ve held off on buying a new camera but I did buy a new (refurbished) laptop.  The old one kept flashing pink lines in areas that are normally white and it was getting harder to work with it.  Aside from job hunting, I do want to get back to writing.  I realized that short story I was writing here (Rigby and Kelvin) has been stagnant fro almost a year.

N0w which one of you should I visit first?
