Or in other words I quit my job and today is my last working day. It was not entirely planned but when things became such that quitting looked like an option, it looked increasingly attractive.
I would walk past this sign without ever noticing it for the past one year. But now that I am about to walk away from it, I clicked a picture, for the first time!
I do not wish to make a big deal out of it because I may simply join another job after sometime. But in the meanwhile today is my last working day and I have no other offer in my hand! Yippee! I actually want that break.
Some people asked me if I did it so that I could write more or travel more. I am not so sure. I did it because it felt right. And simply to take a break. If there is more travel because of it, it is most welcome. What will I do in that break is still a matter of debate. How long will the break last is also to be seen.
A few months back if someone would have asked me if I wanted to quit my job, I would have said no. But then why did I quit? Well as I never talk about about my other life in which there is a Dr. before my name and a tag of a professor after it, maybe it is time to talk about it. I guess there is so much to talk about that I can write a book on it!
But first and foremost I want a break, long or short, slow or fast, travel filled or not but it is the break I am looking forward to! I actually thought of quitting before, but I worked so much for my Ph.D. that it always stopped me, but not this time!
In the meanwhile you enjoy the Sky Watch Friday while I prepare to enjoy my break.
I started my India travel blog, Travel Tales from India in 2005. In 2016 I realized Travel Tales from India and Abroad better reflected my writings. I love to walk and ride in metros around the world. I have not been everywhere, I am not even close, but it is on my list. I also quit my job as a professor in 2015, it was a happening year! I did a Ph.D. from IIT Kanpur ages ago!
