It’s the end of a chapter

I’m sitting in my now bare cubicle with the desk stripped of all items that I used as my attempt to personalise my workspace. Gone are my Daily Calendar, my Muppets figurines, and my own stationeries. It’s certainly the end of a chapter and it feels like it …

When I came to work this morning, one of my colleagues put two balloons on top of my monitor and placed confettis all over my desk. I rearranged the confettis to form a word – “GONE!!” complete with a smilie face at the end. I faced the day feeling positive – I had been waiting for the moment to ‘exhale’. The last twelve months have certainly been a trying time for me at work, so it’s good to finally go on a positive note, with a smile on my face.

We had our farewell lunch in the Breakout Room – we ordered some pizzas from Amalfi and some noodles from Red Rock. Afterwards, we were given our farewell gift from the team – I got a Tintin poster which I will frame and put in the study! I also received a $50 voucher for Borders which I will put to good use. At the end of the day, we had drinks at work and then I continued on with a small group of colleagues at Winston’s.

I still feel a bit numb though – it’s a weird feeling leaving a job to face an uncertain situation. It’s really a good test of my faith and I’m holding on to my Father’s hand tightly because I sincerely believe that He knows what’s best for me.

So, sitting at my desk, alone in a deserted office at 7.03pm – I feel a little sad but liberated, with a sense of relief. I’m also overwhelmed by the anticipation of what tomorrow will bring!

Stay tuned for the next chapter!

I've finally relented to the lures of blogging - and for those who care, well, I'm a self-confessed geek who's a wanderer at heart, who thinks and analyses too much, and who's trying hard to hold on to his 7-year old inner persona.
