“Something Silly with Sol”
Dear CC Friends,
I can’t believe I’ve been under web cam surveillance for almost a year and a half now! *shakes head in disbelief* What will I do without an audience to watch me pick my teeth after lunch?!
So maybe you’ve heard some weird rumors….or just noticed that I’m not puttin’ in those 80-hour weeks at CC Headquarters anymore? Well something silly IS going on with Sol, and I’d like to explain.
My profile headline has always read “Web Geek and Travel Freak”….and while I’ve spent the last 18 months here at CC working quite diligently on my web-geekyness…the time has come for me to re-concentrate my energy on the other *neglected* half of that headline: travel.
So what am I doing? I’m taking a year off to travel the world. It’s something I’ve been saving all my pennies to do for awhile now….and well, the time has come! If you’re interested in more of the details of where and what I’m doing, I go into further explanation in this Q and A session and you can always track my travels on my homepage at www.seekingsol.com. After all, you can never completely unplug the Sol. 🙂
Making the choice to leave CC in order to pursue other adventures was one of the most difficult decisions I’ve ever had to make. I love the site. I love the community. I love my job. AND I love my team. I know the site like the back of my hand. CC is my home — my comfort zone — and it is for that same reason that it’s time for me to move on. I’m currently working part-time at the CC HQ as I get ready for my long trip abroad. You’ll still find me in front of the webcam Tuesdays-Thursdays through the end of February. After that day, will I still be the employee of CC who writes the CC Updates? No. Will I still be an active member of the CC Community? Forever!
My eternal gratitude goes to the *past and present* employees of the company and to the member community of CC. You have taught me more about myself in one year than I have learned in the last ten years of schooling combined. You have added *literally* hundreds of thousands of “LOL”s to my life — and those *not for one day* — go unappreciated. Thank you so very much.
