    I dislike it when others tell me how to do my job.

    The high-functioning autistic American dude in my team at work asked me if he could use one of the meeting rooms on his lunch break to practice the moves from The OA.

    After googling it, I was happy to consent.

    I'm thinking about saving up a bit of money over the summer and quitting my job to pursue a career doing something I actually enjoy doing, jumping 100% into the fashion photography and fashion design route. Have any of you guys willingly quit a job with nothing else solid lined up and if so how did it go?

    I've never done that but would like it to be my next move. I've read you should have 3X your current salary saved up before quitting. Not sure where that number would have come from but it makes sense.

    Also, your Instagram shots have been terrific lately. Glad you got active again!

    This is 3x your annual post-tax salary? If so I'm going to be a long way off from that, but I'm guessing I'll only give myself about 3-4 months to see if I can gain traction. If I can save properly I should have $10-$15k stored away and my current living situation is such that rent is really a non-issue. I want to do it before I talk myself out of it.

    60% of my operation's work being outsourced to India. 75% of my workforce made redundant. I've been retained for a minimum of two years but I have to go out to India to oversee training for 6 weeks (dig our graves). Harsh times.

    I just hope I can hang on for 3 years so that I can pay off my mortgage and start renting this place out to fund my travelling.

    Best of luck with this. Where all would you be looking to travel? If I remember correctly, you've spent a far amount of time in East Asia..? Do I have that right?

    My company had an awards ceremony last night for our clients. It was in a stuffy ass ballroom in New York. I got to present an award & had the DJ play "Bad & Boujee" as my walk up music.

    I felt good about it but no one acknowledged it.
