stuff about where I live and play, and maybe some stuff about where I work and play.

winding up and winding down.

It seems pretty fitting that at the same time our country is CHANGING, I am also CHANGING. Well, I'm changing my JOB, anyway. Tonight is the Celebration of Me, per my co-workers, and even though I am exhausted by the excitement that defined last night, I am still going to rally to give myself a proper send-off.

But this is a bittersweet evening; i.e. super EXCITED for the new jobby, but sad to leave the cool peeps I've grown to love.

Which worries me.

The last time I was TRULY sad to leave a job, the night ended with me crying in a napkin and giving 200-lb men piggy back rides. To be fair, I am 100% more sophisticated and classy now then I was oh... 6 years ago or so. But you know, one never knows how these evenings will go.

Especially when you walk through certain parts of the office and you can just SEE people thinking about the shots they are going to try and force you to drink tonight.

At any rate, bring on the alcohol-absorbing carbs, and let's get down to business.

...which reminds me, I need to go check UPS. I bought a six bottle shot dispenser over the weekend. Where it is?

Congrats on the new job.

Switching positions in life can be tough.. but is it a lesson or a season that is the reason that makes for change? Upgrading yourself and your status is never a bad thing, as long as you appreciate the means that got you there. The friends you made in the last post will cheer you along and fuel your positive days to come. Break a leg at your new post..and make it happen. See you around! :)

We only made you do one shot...

Anyhow, point being, I love you. As I said in my slightly slurred but very heartfelt speech last night, you are truly one of the best people I have ever had the honor of working with. Your new company and your new co-workers are beyond lucky to have. I'm going to miss you every dang day and be sad not to see you walking down the hallway towards me but again I say...you made the right choice.
