This past week I gave my two month notice for my job. My wife and I determined that considering how time I spend doing this shitty job, I don’t get paid nearly enough. There is no salary pacifier for stressing about a job 16 hours a day. There is no amount of money that can make up for some of the really questionable things I have to do in my job. We decided that I would quit and be a house husband for a while before moving to school.

I have to say that I am really looking forward to leaving the last major part of my pre-divorce life. I took this job because my 1st wife desperately wanted me to have a job as stressful as hers. I also took this job never expecting to get promoted to management where a lot of my social anxieties kick in. Having this job is something that Old Shon would do, while New Shon hopefully likes himself too much to work.

What does this mean for you? Well, maybe I will actually get that pirate anthology out this year. I might also get back to posting three times a week. I plan to start archiving some of my pre-blog stories in book formats, so people can finally own Thigh Vs Thigh and maybe some of my more popular stories. Heck, I may even get around to recording that epic 30 minute Eros University story I have in mind.

It is amazing to me how more productive I am just from knowing this job is coming to an end. I wrote a story on Wednesday and today I will write another. It is like I am alive again. I still have 2 months of work to go but fuck, I feel leo Bloom when he decides to become a Producer.

Stop the world, I want to get on.

  1. I wish you the best with this new step in your life. It will bring about a different type of stress, but hopefully a good kind versus the bad kind. Big hugs and well wishes being sent your way as life changes for you.

  2. Woohoo!!!!
    This makes me very very happy.
    I was just about to send you an email that I was going to begin working on the audio recordings of Cell Phone Slave this week and I decided to check you blog since I have been a bad girl and not done so in forever…

    So happy for you my dear ;-)

  3. Musns- I am so looking forward to having stress of a different kind lol

    Scarlet- Ha, once my allergies clear and I no long sound like Jabba the Hut, I’ll do it :)

  4. good to see you’re doing well. I always appreciate the transitions in life.

  5. This mirrors my own life as well at present.
    Quit a job in March that I had to suffer through just to get to the stage I needed to (which was to enter an animation/acting school this April), and while I’m suffering through the stress of literally placing my life on the line to make a success of my student years now, it’s nice to have my main focus of :
    ‘I’m getting up to make my dream real and to become as good as I can’, rather than ‘I’m getting up cause I need to get paid’.

    Just that change in thought dramatically effects your well being (for the better), I hope once you’ve settled with your transition, that you’re happier in life and just generally more relaxed while of course working hard.

    By the way, what you planning to study? :)

  6. Mystique- At the risk of sounding silly, I am seriously debating Library Science. I would love to do something with this love of books I have.

    Good for you, by the way. I too am amazed by what a change in attitude has done for my happiness. Life is too short!
