The wildfires on Maui have pushed me to make a critical decision: I am resigning from my well paying job on Monday. Life is short, beauty is short, I can’t stall my life any longer. My well paying, shitty job is a complete waste of my time. I will die one day. I could die soon. Why torture myself another day with a dismissive, cold, exploitative boss and workplace? Hawaii is my favourite place in the whole world. To see it turn to ash in one day is a massive wake up call to me, to pursue what I really want and not waste my life on people who are in my way of enlightenment.

Really Maui inspired you to resign but not Lytton or Fort McMurray?
