So today I put in my 2 weeks' notice at Careerimp-- for a variety of reasons that I'm not going to go into publicly, I no longer think the position is the right thing for me at this point in my career.

So what is the right thing? I don't know yet :D I feel very lucky to be in a position where I can afford to take a few months off, and I feel lucky to be fairly certain that I have several options open to me.

In my first month, my main goals are:

  • Put some focused work into rstat.us
  • Work on my house (one of my longest-lasting contributions to this world may very well be making this house able to stand for another hundred years!)
  • Cook new things that use all the fresh vegetables we're getting from a farm share before they go bad
  • Figure out goals for the month after that :D

And of course there's Steel City Ruby! I'll now have the week before the conference to concentrate on making it super awesome, and that I'm definitely excited about :D

Thank you to those of you who have been advising me lately-- you know who you are. <3 You helped make this a lot less scary for me.
