TODAY IS MY LAST DAY AT WORK!!!!
I don’t worry about finding a job when I get back (if I ever come back…scientists in Antarctica may need a janitor, never know). It may be difficult to find something in my industry then, but overall I’m careful with my savings and know I’ll be okay.
My dear friend, Kristyn, sent me this quote that resonates in my heart:
“Travel is the only thing you buy that makes you richer”
Plus, I still remember how to create a perfect soft serve ice cream cone or sell some fine china to brides-to-be! No worries.
It’s bittersweet to be leaving Seattle, which I truly love, and a job that has generated some amazing opportunities and friends this past year+. If this day had come even two months ago I’d be in a full out panic attack. Today? I’m so very ready and excited.
For over 10 years my focus has been math and science related. Now I’m about to embark on a year of foreign languages, non-technical writing, photography, history, architecture and so much more. I’m still in awe that the timing and savings have all lined up so perfectly for this opportunity. I consider myself very lucky and fortunate…and I haven’t even left yet!!!
