For whatever reason, I’m just not interested in settling down, having lots of babies, buying a house somewhere and redecorating it for the next 30 years. I’m also not interested in climbing up a corporate ladder somewhere. Don’t get me wrong, I want to be successful, but I want to be successful on my own terms. I don’t want someone telling me what to do for the rest of my life, and I really don’t want to be tied down to the same location, day in and day out with a limited number of holiday days each year. I need to do my own thing, on my own terms, and I must love what I do.
I wasted enough time trying to figure out what it is that I should be doing with my life and I’m not wasting anymore. I believe in living an exciting and full life, free from the monotony of the corporate world and with as much fun as possible, as often as I possibly can. When I started to realise how strongly I felt about all of these things, I realised I couldn’t just sit around and not do anything about it – otherwise I’d be my own worst enemy! And that was when Extremely Unconventional was born. I think that name is the best description I could possibly give to myself, and I intend embrace who and what I am, and use it to my advantage. I’m extremely liberal and I frequently refer to myself as “Team No Judgment” when my friends call me to confess their most recent indiscretions. I consider myself to be an open book – and I really will tell you pretty much anything about myself if you just ask me
*(Side note) Since starting Extremely Unconventional I have accomplished the following things: successfully quit my corporate job (which really wasn’t that bad, I was just bored), moved to Mexico, got involved with an amazing start-up, and now I reside in Cabo San Lucas where I blog, play, and work as a freelance writer. Life is good!
