I have wanted to retire early since I first tasted the awful flavor of working (for someone else), but eventually I realized that retirement isn’t what I ultimately want. Not your traditional retirement, anyway, defined as follows:
Retirement: Growing old and sitting on your ass in Florida waiting to die, eating the blue plate special for dinner at 4 pm at the strip mall diner. – Oxford English Dictionary.
No thanks, OUT on that.
I am an optimist, but I know that old age and the hyperbolic scenario described above are conditions that even optimism won’t save me from, so I am rethinking retirement as an end-of-life...
