Bittersweet

The day is finally here....my last day of work at my current job. Of course, if we're being totally honest, my last day of "work" was probably two weeks ago. Today is the last day of me "keeping my desk chair warm with my butt while I check facebook and blog about aspartame."

It's actually going to be a little hard for me to walk out of the door this afternoon. BUT. I mean...it has turned into a HORRIBLE (did you notice that I capitalized that...yeah...there's a reason) place to work. The management lives for breathing down your neck, nothing is ever good enough, the product is declining faster than the economy, and there is just no money to be made right now. It's hard to adequately explain the frustration that hovers right at eye level in this office, waiting to attack you the moment you walk in the door. How can I make you understand.....? ...............

It's a horribly bad haircut, fuzz on your contact lens, wet underwear in your crack kind of experience. It just sucks...and when you find yourself in the midst of it...there's just no pretending it doesn't exist.

So yes, I'm glad to be leaving. However, there are some great people here that I'm really going to miss. This office, while being the general source of plenty of misery as of late, has also been the home to people who let me cry on them when my life fell apart, listened to stories about all my first dates, and in general helped me to believe that life was going to be ok again...and sure enough, they knew what they were talking about.

Sometimes moving on is painful. Sometimes it's sad. Sometimes it's just necessary. In this particular case, I think it's just the next leg of the journey that will get me a smidge closer to God's best for me. So in more ways than one that's a move I'm happy to make.
