    I want to quit around March, right around the time for income tax, and the company I'm with gives out bonus' around that time, hopefully will be around $1000, so with this little cushion money, I want to float and do what I feel. I would like to travel a little bit, but not blow all my money in a week and then go get another job right away. I have been thinking about taking a road trip, but I don't know where yet that won't cost me an arm and a leg.

    I'm right about at that point too...ready to just drop it all, pick up and travel a bit.
    I have college training in computer science that is now obsolete, and intend to go back for another degree in something that I'll enjoy more such as theology or philosophy or art...

    But for right now the only thing holding me down is my job and a handful of bills...I'm pondering the idea of saving up and spending $0 for the next several months so I have enough to afford bills for a good long while job or no job, then just quitting and living life to the fullest for a while...

    I guess I'm lucky, because I only have car insurance, rent, and two lizards to take care of. I think I'm going to do it though. I feel like I'm suffocating where I am right now. Everything is so stagnant that I can't breathe. I think if I get away for even like a week things will look greatly improved.

    I was planning on doing this around March, so by then hopefully I will have a good sized little chunk of money to hold me over. I don't know where to go, but anywhere away from where I am would be fine for a little bit. Though I know what I'm trying to get away from is a frame of mind, not technically a physical place.
