7 years ago today I was fired (for the first and last time, per FB). At the time I was devastated but relieved — I'd stuck around in a toxic situation for too long. I knew I had a privileged position thanks to my visibility in the PHP community but I wasn't prepared for just how much my life would change.
Three weeks later I had a new job, earning more than double my salary.
They say the best revenge is living well, and I have now done so for longer than I was there. So: achievement unlocked.
Had 30 minutes to kill on my way to work. Stopped at a small creek.
Spent 15 minutes to clean up all the small plastics and bottles that I could. I cant pick up the burnt out fridge :(
At least the water isn't too polluted. The algae and small minnows are nice :)
CTO, traveler, eater.
