no cubicle required

IMG_2787_1Welcome to No Cubicle Required. My name is Rob Vanasco, and I’ve spent the last 30 years dreaming about making a living as a writer. I’ve taken a long detour from that dream, and am now at a point in my life where I am ready to pursue it.

No Cubicle Required refers to the idea that you don’t have to sit at a desk for 40+ hours a week in order to survive. It means that you can have the things you need in life without participating in the rat race. It means, although corporate America might be necessary, I don’t have to be a part of it to survive, and provide for my family.

I’ve spent the last 13 years working in cubicles. The daily needs of my family were provided by the companies in who’s cubicles I lived. I spent almost 7 years sitting in the same cubicle, doing the same job. A year and a half ago, I took a new position at the same company and finally got to move to a new cube. Recently, I was part of a round of layoffs. Now I have no cube.

I want to write. I want to be a writer. This is the goal.

No Cubicle Required will be a place for me to continue to practice the craft of writing. It will chronicle my successes, flops, failures, and “Ah-Ha” moments on my journey towards my goal of living a life outside of the cubicle. In doing so, I hope other people out there will be inspired to chase after the life they deep-down know is meant for them; to find a dream, and pursue it.
