With the year coming to an end and 2017 right around the corner, I'll take this time to discuss joy, disappointment, feelings, hope, you know - all that stuff most fantasy sports players probably aren't interested in reading about, but I'm going to do it anyway.
People keep asking me two things recently:
Life balance is something that I tried to build between work and what's best for myself outside of work. Guess which one always won? There comes a time when you've dug a hole so deep, you can't get out of it. My decision to leave my job is my way of filling the hole so I can find my way out of it and completely start from scratch.
People say, "but you have a good job," and, "you're good at what you do." Let's be honest; just because you're good at something, it doesn't mean you should do it forever. And same goes for being good at your job. Maybe for some, those two reasons are enough. It isn't for me. I'm in my early 30's, and I still have not pursued a passion with any kind of conviction. I was never supported when I wanted to leave home to go to school on the mainland. I wasn't supported when I wanted to go to law school. I wasn't supported when I wanted to show a family member the MLB DFS articles that I had been writing. I can't mention my DFS "investments" with some family because they keep mentioning the word "gambling," because, apparently, the skill I have learned so far means nothing to them.
