Quitting time

This is kind of abrupt, but I’m quitting Almost PhD. Life is full of a different set of adventures (or lack thereof?) these days, so I’ve decided to go in a different direction. I’m hoping that I have the time and energy to keep writing, because I'm sure when this has all passed, I would really like to have a record of what life was like when Will was a baby. It's not necessarily always going to be cute and cheerful: sometimes the baby won't stop crying and everything sucks. So I’m writing this mainly because I just like to write, I guess, but if you’d like to join along (all 5 of you?), you can find me at Cloth Mother.

Thanks for reading.

I am, as always, a faithful reader. And you're keeping up Will's site, right?

well, i'm a little sad ... and a little glad ... this Almost PhD has kept us so close to all your thoughts near and far during the past quick years ... and the "Journaling" could definitely be inherited as i now have stacks of your grandmother's writings ... many entries just about the weather (ha) ... so i hope you can find a way to satisfy your wonderful writing talent without consuming the time for fun things in your future as a 'cloth mother' or just William's mommy ... at least until he leaves the Baby Bjorn!! He is a very precious, adorable and most handsome baby and even though he's 'William', he will bring you great 'joy'!!!
enough ... and hugs, auntie

OH NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!! Just kidding, you have been such a trooper to keep us all up-to-date on all of your adventures. Now, you are headed in a new direction. So, good luck at wherever and whatever that may be. Of course, we all know Will is going to play a part in whatever.

Hi, I can understand your feeling, because i'm in a similar situation like you. And i told my boss today that i decide to quit my PhD although its already my last year.Life is short, dont spend too many time and bad mood on things you dislike.Spend more time with your family is much more important.
Best wishes for you
