So today's my last day at my current job. I've got all my stuff in boxes. I've copied over all my personal files and deleted the rest. I'm saying goodbye to the people I've worked with for 2.5 years, many of whom will be out of work tomorrow.
It's a very bittersweet time for me. I'm excited to be moving on. Relieved to still have a job. At the same time I have a big case of survivor guilt. Gifts and well wishes are being exchanged and I've gotten a whole lotta of "good luck" comments. I don't really know what to say to the people who are out of work. I should be stopping by the farewell "party" at the bar this afternoon but probably just for a little while to pay my respects.
I wish I could take a few of my coworkers with me and I hope that they will land on their feet.
In the meantime, wish me luck tomorrow on my first day at the new job. April 1st, hope that's not a bad sign.
