Last Hoorah

Today was a milestone in my life.  For the past four months, my amazing coworkers (not all of them are amazing, but these are!) and I have been going to eat after work once  a month.  Today was my last go-out-to-eat-after-work hoorah.  It makes me a little sad.

You see, I went to high school with several of my coworkers but wasn't really close to any of them except one, whom I've been good friends with for as long as I can remember.  Anyway, during the time that I have been working there, we have gotten much closer, and I consider them very good friends of mine.  It's crazy to me how you can go to school with people and see them every day for years and not be friends; yet a few years later, you go to work with people and see them every day for months and become kindred spirits.  Okay, so that was a little far...

Little trivia for you: In what movie does the main character focus on having a "kindred spirit?"

Anyway, what I'm trying to say is that we've all become pretty close.  In two days, I'm going to go from talking to them every day to talking to them who knows how often.  It's sad.

But back to the going-out-to-eat-after-work thing, I have been PROMISED that this will continue after I leave..... and it BETTER.  Or I'm closing my account....

Not really.

Today, we went to the Hard Rock Cafe for Todd's birthday.  I graduated high school with Todd.  I always liked him then, and I GUESS you could say we were KIND OF friends, but not really, if I'm being honest.  After working with him for two years, I have realized that Todd is HILARIOUS.  He is also one of the nicest guys you will ever meet.

They all keep asking me if I'm sad at all, and I always tell them that I'm really not, but as I'm typing this, I feel myself getting that way.  I'm not sad AT ALL about not working there, but I am VERY sad about leaving people that I have gotten close to.  In high school, I was really shy.  I had a lot of friends that were popular.. but I wasn't popular.  If that makes sense at all.. I found it difficult to open up to people and really get to know them. Since working with these people, I've gotten to know them in a way that I never would have had I not worked here.  And I'm thankful for that.

So I guess I'll finally admit it..... Leaving is a little bittersweet.  

But just a little! =)


  1. Goodbyes are always sad for me. You may not love the situation (or job), but you do love the people there. Well, some of them :) You have a good attitude about it, though! You can always still get together outside of work. Or, like you said, you can close out your account...their choice ;)


  2. I am excited for you as you step into all ahead! Praying for you!
