What I’m looking forward to: more time with friends. I’m looking forward to spending time with friends during the day but also having the energy and time to have friends over in the evening and the weekend. We may have a small house but I still plan to make it a comfortable place to enjoy time with friends.
What I’m leaving behind: the lack of fulfillment, the emptiness of my job. In the ideal world, my job would be a great engine for change and re-imagining of the built environment. In reality, it is just another administrative function of a great bureaucracy.
