He's the man, going to work.... Got his tie, got ambition

Dear Internets,

Have you ever just felt like quitting your job, saying "to heck with it all!" and moving away from your family and friends to follow your dreams for a while?

I'm guessing yes, Internets. I mean, who doesn't sometimes hear the call of the open road and want to just keep driving?

Well, one of my good friends Dan actually took the leap a few months ago. He loaded his car up with all kinds of camping and climbing gear and drove from Texas to Colorado so that he could "play outside." He's an awesome, funny, athletic, super sweet guy who posts pictures that will make you want to climb the walls of your cubicle. You should read his blog.

Oh. And ladies? Last I heard, he's single.*


*Dan is not a creepy single dude trolling for womens on the internets. But it is fun to embarrass him a little sometimes. Sorry Dan! Couldn't help myself.

I guess this is what I'm kinda doing...going broke, but enjoying the weather!

I wish I had the guts to climb the stuff Dan does...I don't like snow and cold.

Thanks for the post, Jane! I must admit that I did blush a bit when I saw this post.

p.s. I'll be moving back to Austin by next spring. I too am going broke. It's bittersweet out here.

I had a friend, a lawyer, once take a year off to learn to play the piano. Something he always wanted to do.

Of course, he had the resume to make that stick, and he knew he could find work again no problem (it's like that when your resume as an attorney includes "Associate White House Counsel.")
