2015 has been a weird, good and bad year for me. In February, I left the company I had dedicated 6 years of my life to and decided to go ride and travel around.
This Blog is mostly to share some pics, experiences and to help me improve my writing skills so I can do a better job in future adventures.
October 2014- I turned 29 years old which made me really look back at my life and reflect on whether I was where I wanted to be; I read on a travel blog something along the lines of “I had the cushy Job, nice home, the sports car and my bike; but something was off.”; and that summarizes how I felt at that exact point of my life. What I thought would make me happy just wasn’t really making me happy and a lot of things going on at work made me realize I needed change.
February 2015- After months of thinking about it, I decided to make an exit plan for May. That was the deadline I was giving myself to come up with a financial plan and leave the company.
But as we all know, plans often change and due to some rumors and childish drama somehow I was out of there by the end of February.
The first few days were hard, a lot of mixed feelings and I was completely scared of what was going to happen in my future (OH MY GOD DID I MAKE A MISTAKE) was going through my mind every day. It was still too cold to ride and my bike was at the shop, so for the first few weeks I enlisted my friends to go beer hunting and winter hiking.
One of those road trips was to Boston; we decided to go on a Friday night without even looking at the weather…. “How bad could it get” well, we went the weekend of the worst snow storm of the winter smh..
Oh and this was during St. Valentines (me drinking my date)
On the way back from Boston, driving through a miserably bad snow storm; we decided to stop at Willimantic Brewery.
I will not lie, I was pretty scared at that point; but I knew I had to make the best out of this opportunity and have fun.
