I have been anticipating this moment for so long. A few days ago I formally gave notice to Mark Kent, my then manager, that my last day at Twitter will be Friday, June 16th – yesterday!
Yesterday was surely a bittersweet day. Lots of farewells and goodbyes with people whom I love and enjoyed spending the bulk of my waking hours with. It made me realize more and more how I should invest more time and energy in fostering relationships with those around me.
The structured life that I have been accustomed to for the last three years has now ended. I no longer have a job, no source of income, and no stable home. I don’t even have plans for what I’ll be doing next. I have a flight to Egypt that leaves on the 21st so I can spend time with family, but that’s all there is.
In some way, this may sound like I am recklessly rebelling against my current lifestyle or committing some mild form of suicide. There is undeniably some truth to that, but there’s also more to it than that.
There’s so much on my mind but I’ll leave it at that for now. It’s 3am already and I spent all night with Nishanth and Nick Pisarro at Noisebridge where we were preparing for our space balloon launch. We have to wake up in less than four hours and launch this baby! Stay tuned.
