End of an era
Monday, February 09, 2015
I actually, really did it! I'm FREEEE! I have hated my job for nearly 2 years and today was my last day. Ever.
I got down to the car park at the end of the day and felt such a mix of emotions I didn't know whether to laugh or cry. I went with cry, but luckily my best friend was there to hug me and then make me laugh when I was done crying. Honestly, I think 90% of the tears were from the realisation that I will no longer see him every weekday.
I have always been quite harsh about my colleagues, which I somewhat regret after receiving my leaving gifts and card. I expected nothing from them, but I got a card full of lovely messages, two pairs of earrings that I love, some baking equipment, a book on decorating cupcakes, some reese's pieces (my favourite!) and a notebook, and there was still £15 left over to go in an envelope. I must stop being so harsh on people.
Tomorrow I jump right into the start of my next era. The new job! I honestly have no idea what to expect; I'm just going to get a good night's sleep, put on my favourite smart dress, get there early, smile and do my best. I cannot fail...
