Could I Quit My Day Job

watch night train online I wonder how many of you ask yourselves this question each day. How many of you want to be able to afford quitting your job and walk out the door knowing that this is the last time that you’ll be in that office. Being able to strut and walk with a little bounce in your step. Heaving a sigh that the ordeal is over. Looking an arrogant employer at his face and telling him off and / or flipping the bird. Doesn’t that sound great in your head? Don’t you already have a song picked out that will be playing in the background if you were doing that? I certainly do.

I have been thinking about this a lot lately. Can I really afford to quit my job, without finding a new one immediately or finding one first and then quiting? The second one is the wise way to go about things. But the temptation is there to throw caution to the wind and march straight in and say “I Quit” and set sail. I wish I could do that. I just can’t do it at the moment. I get my monthly salary on the last day of the month, by which time I would be down to my last Rs.100 of the previous month. That is just not done.

So I don’t have enough as backup in case I want to quit. Otherwise I would. Immediately! And what about you? Whoever reads this entry, please enter in the comment about your feelings.

  1. I don’t think I would quit mine, although I’m not in an “office job” per se. I work for a charitable organization doing drop-offs and pick-ups of furniture. Also, I am a student, so the first job is only part-time anyways.

    As for studenthood, I love the intellectual stimulation it provides, so I definitely wouldn’t drop it for anything!

    Sorry that I can’t mirror your sentiments! :)

  2. That’s ok. As you said, you’re not in an office job and it’s only part time.

    Wait :D There is still time for you.

  3. I don’t know if I’d like to quit my job – which is freelancing at the moment, anyway – but I’d certainly like to quit my life.

    In a I need to make some changes, maybe travel kind of way, not a this must all come to an end kind of way.
