It dawned on me after I wrote the post about the Jet Pack that I don’t take enough chances in life. And it made me more than a little depressed. This isn’t how it’s supposed to be, surely? I’m not even thirty and my idea of a good night involves a good book, a home cooked meal and maybe a bath later in the evening (sometimes with lavender – so what? It helps me sleep). There has to be more to life than this.
So, after much running around in mental circles (metaphorically speaking – though the alternative does sound like fun) I have come to a decision. I am going to leave the comforting shell of the IWOOT office and pursue something pure. Something that will make me feel alive. I am going to BUY the Jet Pack.
Lots of people have tried to stop me. Family, friends, colleagues, some people I told at the bus stop – not one of them thinks this is a good idea. But I’m through listening to other people, or common sense for that matter. This is something I need to do.
So, it’s with a heavy heart that I say goodbye to all of you. I’ve really enjoyed writing for IWOOT and I hope you’ve enjoyed reading it. I’m sure you would have let me know if you hadn’t – that’s what the comments are for, after all. I’m off to pursue my dream. I’m going to become a rocket man!
