Random thoughts of an economist

A long break, I need.

Posted in Life by kafuwong on July 13, 2016

No.  I have not reached the age when my employer would push me out of the door.

Yes.  I still have value to my employer.  He still wants to keep me.

It is my choice to take a break — a long break, possibly.  There does not seem to be a mechanism for me to take a long break  — say a year or two — from my job and return afterwards.  Allowing anyone in my institution to take such a long break might cause difficulty for my employer to hire a short-term replacement.  With such anticipation, my natural choice is to resign.

In my case, I would not call it a resignation.  The good old contract arrived my desk a while back and I simply had decided not to sign.
