Two years ago I let you into my life a little bit and told you that I was joining my friend’s tech start-up. Well last Thursday we completed the sale of the company. I could stay on if I wanted but after two years at a start-up I’m drained. I’m going part-time while I try to find another legal job - one where I’m not the only lawyer.
I’ve been on vacation since the sale and while I wish I could tell you that I had some grand realization about my future I can’t. The sale gives me a nice monetary cushion while I find other work but it’s nothing to retire off of. My writing gigs will help float me too but don’t look for me to do it for a living any time soon.
I have a weird relationship with notoriety. I remember being horrified in high school when I found out that there were people who knew who I was while I didn’t know them. I like to control who knows me - it’s an odd thing but it’s a thing nonetheless.
But I did want to let you guys know about this because it’s a really big deal to me. I don’t know what the future holds but I hope that we can keep talking.
