Our company actually offers early retirement starting at five years. I could have retired three years ago during my fifth year. But I didn't. Well, I've waited this long. I might as well retire on my tenth anniversary, correct? I still do not know what I'll do once I retire from this job I've come to love so much. I still have no concrete idea of what career path I'll pursue. My options are wide open, I guess.
Do I go for a career in the academe? Do I invest in a business venture and try out being an entrepreneur? Do I take time off - go on a sabbatical, try to have another baby with The Husband? Do I switch professions, build a name for myself in a different industry altogether? Do I try to see what's in store for me and my family abroad?
So many options. That's a good thing, I know. I'll only be 32 when I retire. One thing's for sure, I've got to be prepared.
First thing's first. Where are my sunnies? The future's so bright, I gotta wear shades.
