Between Generations and Happy to Steal from Both

"When I ask older people,* they say it's the smart thing to get a stable job with benefits and a secure salary even if I don't like the job.  When I ask younger people,** they tell me to take time off, that it's completely fine to jump from job to job until I find something that, I don't know, fulfills me."

* Older than 33.
** Younger than 33.

My friend is leaving her job. It seems things are getting fairly dismal over at my former place of employ and that, perhaps, I got out while the getting was good. Unlike me, she's leaving without any kind of severance package and is a bit lost in her Next Step on the Journey sort of deal. She wanted to grab lunch and see how I'm doing as a gauge for what comes next for her.

"You don't seem to fit either category. What's that all about?"
