It’s been 14 days today since retiring. My life has changed a lot. I like the fact that I don’t have to get up at 3:30 in the morning to go to a prison that will likely soon be ravaged by CORVID-19.

I still have some hurdles that I have to overcome to finish the process officially, but I’m beginning to see the rest of my life in different terms than before.

I have more money than before, as I calculated. I haven’t even had a full month to realize how much better off I am financially, but already the figures are very encouraging indeed.

I’m still working for myself. I’m an independent contractor with my own hours. My wife comes along with me sometimes when I work. I can do what I want, when I want, and how I want to do it.
