4am. Alarm goes off. Last day. Do I get up, do I take a quick nap & go in late, or do I just say screw it? Do I care or do I not care? What kind of person do I want to be on my last day of work? Honestly, I wouldn’t be me if I didn’t go in on time. Don’t get me wrong I wish I could be rebellious & not care, but there’s no way that I could do that. You could say I met in the middle. I lounged around & read for about 10 minutes. I finally got myself up, showered, & got dressed. My hair would just have to air dry, & I would do a touch of makeup in the car.
Decision time. What am I going to listen to on my drive in? Halsey was it. I love her new song Without Me, so I had put it on repeat. (That’s what I do when I find a new song that I love.) It made sense that I did because I’ve listened to every other one of her songs at least 100 times. No joke. Maybe there was also an underlying message. Featuring Panera Bread.
10am. Break time. I went & filled up my car with gas & call my bestie. I mean who else do I tell all my drama to?
3:30pm. Clocked out. Well I left work late. Who doesn’t go in early & leave late on their last day of work? Or was that just me?
The work day was definitely stress free. I had a lot that I needed to get done, but I wan’t anxious about it. Hence, me not leaving at 2. There were some bumps in my planned day. After everything was said & done, I go it all finished & turned in my key. Hugs were given all around. Tears were shed with the boss lady. As much as she was the boss lady, she was like a second mom. All bittersweet, but I know that I will see my girls again outside of working there. You become so close with those you work with on a daily basis. There is so many stories & experiences. I wouldn’t change a thing when it came to those girls!
When I left the building, I closed a chapter of my life. Sitting in my car in the parking lot, it all became surreal & I was excited to start my next. I don’t know what that one will consist of, but I know that I am ready.
Cheers to my ‘retirement’!
