Day 227: The Last Day

This was the final day of my job, and Monday I start the new one. We had a lunch send-off, an exit interview, and stuff like that; I barely did any actual work. I guess that’s how the last days of work go. Goodbye, Winter Park.

Day 226: 2 Days

Tomorrow’s the last day at my job. Really, I was barely here a year, but you get used to things pretty fast, and it feels a little weird to think I won’t be driving these roads much anymore.

Day 225: Just Days

Just a few more days remain before I walk into the office complex behind a strip mall for the last time. I suppose I’m getting a bit contemplative, taking things slowly, reading more, relaxing more. I like that.

Day 224: Still Working

Though I’m a lame duck at work now, I’m still getting some work done. I’m incapable of being lazy. It feels kind of strange in these last days, but it’s better than the last days of my previous job, when we found the company was going under.

Today’s the first day of the last week at my job. I spent my lunch filling out all the paperwork for my new job. Moving on is good.

Day 222: Gearing Up for the Final Week

I got some good work done during the weekend. It seems when I’ve got work coming in, it comes in fast, and this is good. This week will be my last at the current job, then off to bigger, better things.

Day 221: At Night

It’s been rainy. I got work done for the side biz during the day, and spent the evening reading, then driving around aimlessly as I haven’t done in some time. Night is a good time.

Day 220: Lame Duck

The last two weeks are the "lame duck" two weeks, but I’ve gotten a surprising amount of work done so far. Today, nearly everyone was out for one reason or another, and I mostly sat around though.

Day 219: Jumping Ship at the Right Time

Last year, I didn’t jump ship when the time was right, and my employer went under, and I lost my job and became a ghost for a while. This time, I’m keeping pace, I’m moving, and I’m not going to let external events hit me like they did in 2009. Jumping ship is great.

Day 218: Ramping Up

Things are ramping up as I fade from one job and into another. I’m working quickly and effectively on the first paying gig for my side business, and we’ve got more looming fast on the horizon. Things are going to get big.
