The answer is: I rebuild.
But as Jennifer Willoughby said - there is so much violence in reconstruction.
I know this piece has been about jobs I’ve quit - but there have also been jobs that have been good to me, so I’d like to pay a little homage to them. I have had the opportunity to work at beautiful places, meet warm people, and create things (like this newsletter!) that I am so proud of.
I’d like to end this with a toast (wedding, remember?):
If the voice in your head is saying ‘I need to put in my papers’, here’s to that voice for knowing you deserve better.
And to a little old me, for continuing, despite. For myself, by myself.
