I’m writing this post to formally announce my imminent and inevitable death. Or at least that’s what it feels like since I am officially leaving semvironment today.

The past few weeks I have been pushing 90+ hour work weeks…and the only part that I’m bummed about is the lack of time spent with my family – who are very important to me so I will slow it down because family is, and always will be, an acceptable and enjoyable reason to take it easy.
