First off I want you all to know this hasn't been an easy decision to make. I've spent a lot of time analyzing my life over the last two months and have made some important decisions to radically change my life. I am quitting my job and taking a year off in order to figure out a Doctorate program to apply to and move on to a new stage of my life. I want to be able to be 100% focused on figuring out my future. To do this I need to step away from my duties here. I fully intend to not step completely away from the community (I'm gunning for the Chancellorship once I figure out which school I'm going to attend.) I promise an announcement will come soon with my replacement and it will be a seamless transition. I will be leaving you in hands better suited than my own to help lead this great community.
