I feel like I have a knot in my throat at the thought of leaving day. I said my goodbyes to two of my supervisors today. They’re both going to the Australian headquarters for a couple of weeks so they won’t be here for my last day.
I just had a bottle of beer and as a result I turn really red. They both began to talk to me about my career plans and goals. Then I received some exciting news, a part time job with them. I would be able to work remotely, from home. The chief marketing officer said that they’d send me a computer I could work on.
Then they went into saying their goodbyes and on how much the office would miss me. This is when the water works started. I looked like a mess. The redness I get from alcohol gets even redder when cry or laugh.
I’m going to miss all of my coworkers so much. It really hurts. I enjoyed the daily routine. Everyone was a character that played a role in making feel comfortable and at home. I’ve grown attached and I’m not ready to say goodbye.
I can not began to express my gratitude towards every individual that I’ve had the privilege of interacting w on a daily basis. I’ve learned and experienced so many new things. I came out of my shell and was completely myself this summer. I was fortunate enough to be surrounded with people that embraced me and encouraged me.
The stories that I have compiled from this summer seem endless. I could talk someone’s ear off.
I just have to remind myself that this is a temporary goodbye. I will be back for good in 6 more months. I fell in love this summer. I now know where I belong. I know where I want to live, build a career, and possibly start getting into the dating scene.
One more week left in the Bay Area…
