Gahhhh my feelings overfloweth
Today is my last Friday at my job - the first real job of my adult life, the job I started as a completely different person, fresh out of college. This job wasn’t always the best, and there were so many times when I was so frustrated and unsatisfied I wanted to scream. But I love what I do (what I did?) and have immensely enjoyed the experiences, good and bad, that I’ve had as a professional here. Even better, and more importantly, the people.
It’s always the people. The people here have sustained me through day after day. They’ve become like family. We’ve shared ups and downs. They were the people I got out of bed for when I broke up with Terrell last year . They were the people who taught me how to drink, who showed me I was an awesome person, who commiserated with me when the world was hell. And now I’m leaving them, and it’s so bittersweet. I know there’ll be more jobs, probably better jobs. New coworkers and friendships to be made.
But this was my first, and I’m so sad to leave now that it’s here. I’ve spent all day fighting back tears, and I still have three days left next week before The End. Gahhh. I’m going to drown myself in saltwater the next couple of weeks.
