Very cool and good luck man. I have nearly an identical story. I quit my job last week simply because I didn’t have enough hours in the day to maintain all my side projects. I also decently enjoyed my job, and it was rough telling my boss I was going to leave. I have a lot of respect for him.
But!!! It’s time for me to try, and just BUILD my projects! I can always go back to being that 36 year old man who hates his job (I’m 26 currently as well — seems to be the magical age 😂)
