Can I Take A Moment of Your Time Away From Video Games? I Might Be Having a Breakdown
This is it! I’ve had my f**k this shit moment! I’m going to quit my job today. I know this isn’t about gaming. It’s about my life. Writing here about this consoles me a little. I am after all just a big baby (my wife says that). Just spare me a moment.
What Led to This Moment? Man Are You F***king Nuts?!
Yes I am f**king nuts because for the first time doing this whole resigning thing, I do not have a backup plan. I have not secured a job. And that’s scary as f**k.
And I thought waking up every morning dreading to go to a miserable workplace would be the worst. The feeling of not knowing what comes next is pretty shitty.
Especially when my finances look like the Hindenburg crashing and burning to the ground. This is bad. This is bad. My brain keeps uttering.
I don't have an exit plan other than perhaps to drive a Grab (that's like Uber in your part of the world) and makes just enough money to cover for expenses.
And boy do I have expenses. High-speed fibre, maintaining this site, car loan, rental, paying for my son's occupational therapy (he's mildly autistic) and kindie. Shit, did I make a mistake?
It's Not a Mistake! I'm Sure of It
What's the opportunity cost of staying? I keep feeling miserable and shitty? My health gets worse? My satisfaction in life plummets?
I just want to take the time to say this.
If you're stuck in something you hate. Get unstuck! Seriously, even if you don't have a backup plan. Look even if you had a plan, those are never perfect and things can get f**ked up fast for reasons out of your control.
Things might seem bleak. But as they say, life always finds a way.
You'll find ways to make things happen. I'll survive.
Have faith in yourself. (Yes I do, Yes I do).
Does This Mean I'm Going To Work On This Blog Full Time?
As much as I'd want to do that, no. I simply have too much commitment and need a steady financial income. But I'll be able to focus on this blog with a peace of mind.
My ultimate goal is to make this blog generate enough revenue for me to do full time. But as of right now, this is merely a fledgeling baby blog that hasn't quite matured.
I've always said this. Your feedback and your support are absolutely vital. I hope that the content I produce will be useful to you.
And f**k yeah to strategy games!
Don't be shy to sound off in the comments. Do check out the blog from time to time. I won't be updating it daily, but there is fresh content planned real soon.
Thank you for taking the time to read my rant. Now go back to conquering your virtual world generals!
