Why terrifying? Well, first of all I’m quitting an excellent job, selling almost all my stuff and then packing my life away into a backpack for a trip around the world. If that’s not enough to scare you, then call me uncle.
Oh wait, I’m going to be an uncle, too.
Obviously this year’s going to be a big one. I remember my dad showing me some form from the IRS which details how much money he made every year of his life up to that point. There were two years that stood out on his during which he made $42 and $0 respectively because he was traveling the world. And 2010 is going to be that year for me. It’s going to be the year I remember. It’ll probably be my ATM pin code five years from now.
Sure, it’s going to be scary. But I’m more excited than anything.
