1 more day!

My last day is tomorrow. Not "last day" as in the Grim Reaper gave me a 24 hour notice (I'd try to move or at least work up a good disguise), but my last day working at good ol' Rob-May. And as a fitting compliment to my ending, the macy*s signs went up on the buildings. Out with the old, in with the new.


I can't decide if I should go in late tomorrow or leave early? Hey great idea, I'll do both! Those of you who know me might have the slightest hint I may be a bit on the emotional side, but I assure you my tears will be controlled, no public displays of sadness or nostalgia. Just firm handshakes, thank yous and goodbyes, and a quick wave and I'm out the door.

Just gonna have to be a different man

It's not like I'm leaving the city, I'll be back to the mall many times and of course I'll stop in to visit. I'll probably hang out at Starbucks every day about 10:05 (9:05 on sale days) or I'll bring my homework to the lunch court and you can all stop by and say hello.


Ok, gotta go pick out a tie for tomorrow, one that hides tear stains. I love you all, and I miss you already.

This is a big step. Isn't it odd how the more convinced we are that we want to take a big step to change our lives the harder it is to actually take that step? I see it every day in the look on the people's faces who hate their jobs but refuse to look elsewhere: it's easier to stay in a bad situation than to take the risk of moving on. Marriage, divorce, children, jobs, buying a house - all scary. I hope you never lose your momentum.

So...we're on the edge of our seats here! How'd the last day go? What are you filling your days with? How'd the anti-tear tie work out? When does school start?
