A special last day
I’m typing this newsletter on a very special day. It’s my last day at Disney Streaming, and I went to the office to turn in my laptop, badge, keys, and all that at the end of the day.
Just like anything in the past year and a half, this last day isn’t like any other last day at work I’ve experienced.
Normally, a last day for me is a day where you’re kind of having a good time with your (soon to be ex-)coworkers, have some drinks afterwards, and really just make it a bit of a special day. It’s your last one after all.
Today, I’m all by myself. I got a few very nice Slack messages about this being my last day and my coworkers made me an awesome digital going-away card with all kind of really nice greetings on it.
Other than that, today is a day just like any other.
One of the coworkers I’ve befriended decided to come to the office for a couple of hours so we could have some coffee, talk, and have lunch together. He did have to leave after that, but it was very nice that he joined me for a bit to make this day a little bit special.
All in all, last days are bittersweet no matter what they look like. I’m sad to be leaving so many nice coworkers, and a company that I enjoyed working for for the past thee and a half years. At the same time, I’m super excited about what I’ll do next, both as freelance work, and for my books and blogs. This will be a whole new adventure and I’m excited to get it going.
To new beginnings!
