So many changes on tap for 2012. One of the major changes was leaving my job at Microsoft. Eleven and a half years at MS plus another nine or so at other companies. That’s a lot of time spent in the tech world. During that time I don’t think I ever took more than two continuous weeks off. Prior to starting my next adventure (more on that later), I decided to take some time off. It’s only been a few weeks, but already my mental health is markedly improved. I cannot describe how good it feels to wake up without that level of stress. It’s been a while since I’ve felt this happy.
One of the tasks I’ve always intended to be better at is keeping a blog/journal. So… this is it. Not sure where I’m going with it, but frequent writing can’t be a bad thing for self-development.
