It's been an age since I've written, but the world hasn't stopped turning and I lost impetus. Busy isn't a valid excuse but maybe fun is ?

Shortly after my last post I resigned from my rather average job in Vancouver which caused no end of commotion. I've realised that most people on this planet think they are either better than they really are (or more attractive, interesting or thinner but I digress). And I know that no one is really good at dealing with criticism however we like to think we are (package it right, make it constructive blah blah blah, but at the end of the day if you had worked it out yourself and changed it, no one would have to tell you in the first place?), but this experience took it to a whole new level. Talk about lack of insight. Should you choose to put yourself on a pedestal and live in a bubble then at some point the bubble will burst. Suffice to say that some of my senior colleagues got emotional and unprofessional. Upsetting and unnecessary. I've never experienced resigning before, and hopefully never again as it wasn't pleasant, but it shouldn't be a drama. Life changes and either you move with the changes (or preferably ahead of them) or you won't survive (prettily at any rate). Darwin was brilliant on so many levels.
