Me neither. Let's quit.
What will we do once we quit?
I don't know. I haven't thought that far ahead. That's part of what sudden quitting involves, though. A tumble into the unknown.
Your description of sudden quitting is evocative.
It's fun but scary. I haven't done it in a long time. I think about it often, though.
I am thinking about quitting school at this very moment. As I read about Hegel and think about my 18th century philosophy prof who rambles and rambles.
If I quit my job I couldn't pay my mortgage and that would be bad. Don't ever buy a house unless you put down a ton of money up front. I don't know if home-buying is part of the "Canadian Dream" as it is part of the American one, but I feel like I was sold a crap bill of goods.
I had a minor job in mortgages, briefly, and then I went crazy. They seemed like a better deal than rent, at least in this city. That said, since I've been sick I've been paid a little bit of money for my disability. It wouldn't be enough to both pay rent and eat if I didn't live with my parents, but as my parents provide those things, it's considerable disposable income for a student. It's the only way I could have foreseen finishing my degree. I've come to think of money as basically the "without which not" of our society, and I plan to demand more of it than I would ever have accepted before when I graduate.
