For months, since laying on the beach in Croatia, I have dreamt of quitting my job. Of fulfilling my dreams of traveling and documenting my experiences.

Now, it isΒ O-F-F-I-C-I-A-L. I handed in my letter of resignation today. And, it went remarkably well.

Wednesday, Feb. 3 is my last day of work.

The wave of relief, the smile on my face, ahhhhh. I wouldn’t trade it.

Look out World, D is coming for ya.

      Dear Work,
      After much thought and consideration, I have made the difficult decision to resign, effective Jan. 31. After that time, I will be traveling the world, raising my middle finger to the corporate world indefinitely.
      I am thankful for the experience I have had with this company and wish you continued success.
      Thanks so much.
      Sincerely,
      The Aussie Nomad

  2. As soon as I returned to work in January I couldn’t wait to tell them I was leaving so I gave them 10 weeks notice. And even though I still have 6 more weeks of work it lifted a huge weight off my shoulders.

    Although I am jealous, I’d love to be starting next week!
