I started this blog when I made up my mind to quit my job and with it the life that I created. Well today is my first day of freedom. Yes I am officially an unemployed bum.
So how did the day go? Well it started with one of the worst hangovers of my life. I expect with a year of traveling ahead it wont be the last. However it got considerably better with some fresh air and a massive bagel. All in all it wasn’t a day with a lot of bangs but one with a quiet inner peace that I haven’t felt in a long time.

Not content with my life so I quit my job and home to start again. Wanted to fall back in love with life so have decided to solo travel for a year- tminus 7 weeks.
To really live my life I am trying as much as possible. Today despite it only being 90 minutes away I finally went to Oxford. So armed with my credit card I hopped on a bus to explore.
What did I find?Well when non-natives say England has an old historic feel to it, I now understand. With its towers, castle, stunning stone work, cobbled pavements, old pubs and little tea rooms Oxford personifies old magical England.
For travelers to/or in England Oxford is a must explore. As always a quote to end by the one and only Roald Dhol
“And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don’t believe in magic will never find it.”-Roald Dhol
I am currently smiling like a cheshire cat, I did it…YAY!
So I gave my resignation today and started the first step to re/discovering my life. I’m also pretty sure my manager swore. She thought I was going to apply for the promotion we spoke about before Christmas so I dont think I could have shocked her anymore. However when I explained my reasoning and the fact that I couldn’t keep the smile off my face she was incredibly supportive, thanks Laura you are an amazing manager.
So I started with my Nan and Aunt. I think the fact that I was giggling like a school girl helped and they supported my decision. Next step tell my mum, I will leave this to my next post and leave you with a quote:

So I made the decision to quit my life. First step resigning from my job. It feels strange as if a massive weight has been lifted from my shoulders and I can breathe again…
So I will talk to my manager today, who will think I have gone crazy as I have no plan.Then tonight I will tell my family.
Wish me luck…
