There's a song on Madonna's Confessions on a Dancefloor album entitled "Jump" and the lyrics go something akin to this:
There's only so much you can learn in one place

Well, that's true enough. For the last two years, I've been on a roller coaster ride of emotions. I've been trying to figure out what I want to do with my life. Call it a quarterlife crisis, general malais, what have you. All I knew was, I couldn't keep going the way I was going. I needed massive change.
The pursuit of massage therapy was a step in the right direction and I'm really looking forward to the classes. However, I came to the conclusion that just a step wasn't enough. I needed to jump. I needed to jump, blindfolded, off the cliff and hope to hell there was a net at the bottom.
So today I jumped.
I officially gave 2 weeks notice at my job. My last day will be September 4th. I'm doing this with no job lined up (although I am diligently looking for a job that will work with my class schedule).
I still don't know if there's a net at the bottom of the cliff. Right now I'm just enjoying the ride down.
