Time will tell…

I wanted to do a blog post celebrating the forgiveness of my student loans, which happened in the past couple of weeks. It took a little while (6 years) and a little extra funds, but they should be behind me now.

And then this picture showed up again and has me reflecting on the whole purpose of this venture.

Ben, when I worked at Microsoft, you could take your kids to work and get a badge for them.

The reason I left Microsoft was to perhaps inspire our enable other kids to be future employees at Microsoft. However, in so doing, I may have made it harder for you to ever work in a technology job such as that.

That’s one way to look at it. Another way to look at it is that you are also part of the mission to reach and inspire other kids who aren’t blessed to have one or two parents at Microsoft. To help them see that they could work there is not something they might have imagined without us going to them.

It was a sacrifice to leave Bellevue, for us all. It continues to be. But I know you will do great things.
