So my last day at work was today. For my farewell party, besides lunch, the kitchen staff baked a surprise cake that my customer care team had decorated. It had a GIRAFFE on it. SO CUTE. ;-; It was the sweetest and most adorable thing ever. For all the frustrating or stressful parts of my job, I really did love it, and saying goodbye completely made me cry. I'm not really all that accustomed to feeling all emotional over things, especially when I knew that I was going to be seeing almost everyone in just a couple weeks (I'm still on the volunteer roster for the farm's next event)! I just hope I manage to properly stay in touch with people in the long term.

Overall, the level of melancholy and excitement has fluctuated a lot for me this week. After I sent out my official moving on email I heard back from a ton of my customers and it's been really touching. I used to pin all my thank you notes on the wall and I brought them all home with me, but when I unpack and properly sort the Box of Desk Junk, I think the only note I may actually keep is the one from Nora Ephron--she was such an amazing person and even her basic correspondence was damn inspiring!

I'm fairly glad I'm not taking off a full week or anything before starting my new position. I'm already feeling a little stir crazy about having three days with zero outstanding issues to think ahead towards. Workaholic much?

For the rest of tonight...a tiny bit of design work, and then beer and tv.

I'm picturing one of those fancy fondant baby-nursery-looking giraffes on the cake, and just the thought is making me want to squee!
