Today is my last day before making the switch to a full-time on-site employee on Monday. It’s kind of weird as I’m not really leaving the company I work for, just moving to a different location and role, but it’s still got that “last day” vibe to it. Folks are stopping by the desk to say goodbye and wish me luck, the boss is taking the team out for a going away lunch, and I’m cleaning up my cubicle and job queues. It’s bittersweet as I’ve enjoyed working here and would love to come back someday if they ever have a full time position to offer, but I’m excited about moving up to a new position in an environment I’m already somewhat familiar with working with people I used to work with in the past. Already former coworkers (who will soon once more be current coworkers) are calling me up and asking if I’m ready to start going to lunch together again (one of them, JethricOne, reads SEB regularly).
So it’s going to be a bit strange today. It’s the last day except it’s not.
