Life changing events

So I decided to take a leave of absence from my corporate job and move in with my out-of-state girlfriend. She offered to support me financially. This is one of those life-changing events that all the planning in the world can't totally prepare you for. I've been spending the last couple of weeks cleaning up clutter from all those years at the same company. I've never been without a job since I was 12 yrs old, and probably most people would think I'm nuts for leaving a cush desk job with a $175,000 annual salary. I look at it as an adventure :)

I've been at my present job for far too long, and it's time for a change, and a big one at that.

I can be a serious workaholic, and if I don't take this time out now, I can picture myself waking up in 25 years still at the same job and about to collect social security.

Congratulations! I'm the one that keeps asking questions on the post below. My name is James and I live in Alexandria, VA. I hope everything works out with the new girlfriend.

I wouldn't trade my wife for anything and never thought having such a wonderful "better half" would be this much fun.

Yes, this area is overheated. We're hoping to sell our condo next year (after our 2 yr exemption) and take that equity and invest in something. Reading and learning on your website has been great. Look forward to your subsequent posts.

Thanks, James! I've actually been going out with her for over a year already...
