On vacation again

2012-10-05T14:30:31+00:00

I’m on vacation again,as you may have guessed. I have lots to burn before I leave this position. And the kitchen needed to be tiled. I finished that this morning. Now I am running errands.

This week at work, I am being blamed in absentia for the failings of a subordinate. A few weeks ago, I was being blamed for the failings of a superior. All of this reinforces my plan to strike out on my own, to freelance. I will have greater freedom to set my own schedule, to meet my own commitments, and to make my customers happy. And I will have no one blaming me for others’ failures. I will be less certain of continuous employment, but I will be better able to control which jobs I take, and to set customers’ expectations.

Now I just need to save up for some specialized work-related equipment purchases, and arrange some special insurance coverage, before I set sail on my own course.

The clock is ticking.
