Closing One Chapter, Opening Another…

Well, it’s official: after over 7.5 years, I am no longer an employee of the bookstore! My last day was on Wednesday…truly a bizarre day. The best way I can think of to describe it was “anti-climactic”. It’s funny how over the years you work for a company, you always sort of wonder (and have this vague picture) of how it will end…what your last day there will be like. The reality, however, was that it’s just another day. And then you’re done. Moving on. I admit, it was a bit of a harsh reality at first, but it’s already starting to soften as I realize that there is much from my time there that I will still carry with me (some good friendships and many lessons of all shapes & sizes), and also as I set my eyes on what’s next: summertime! Time to prepare for the baby! Time to better care for our home! Maybe even some time to actually work on music (while I can still hold a guitar, that is :)). A chapter closing is a weird thing – but a chapter opening is fresh and exciting.

  1. Wow! This is the end of an “era” for you. You should have gotten a gold watch or something. 7.5 is more like 50 in retail years.
