My fellow Praxians,
It is with a heavy heart that I write to inform you that I am quitting Praxis. This was one the hardest decisions of my life.
Over the past 6 months, I’ve fallen deeply in love with my job. There’s nothing I’d rather do with my time than work. That feeling is so rare and precious that I can’t let anything get in the way of me and my job. I’ve been doing Praxis for 4 of those months, and it’s always a struggle to balance my time. When I think about my time, “on the margins”, the best way to allocate it would be to spend more time on work. If that means that I have to take time from Praxis, then that’s what it takes.
I have learned so much while in Praxis. I don’t regret joining; not one bit. When I applied in October of 2014, I hated my job. It was an awful corporate desk job that made me feel like a tiny cog. Praxis offered me a way out. I was so enamored with the idea of working at a sexy start up. Some things fell into place in July 2015, and I wound up finding my own sexy start up, with out the help of Praxis. Now the allure of Praxis has faded, since I didn’t need them to find a sexy start up for me.
You people have, and always will be my inspiration. I’m star-struck that I got to work along side you. I can’t wait to see where our paths take us, and I’ll be proud to say I knew them way back when we were in Praxis together. The Praxis staff have already given me the warmest of farewells and wish me nothing but success and achievement. I have nothing but the utmost respect for them. Praxis is a great program, it’s just not for me.
I wish you all, all the best.
