Once upon a time, I was fricking cute. Guess which one is me??? Posted by Hello

Longest two weeks ever..

Wow, I'm almost there, but there are two days left. It doesn't seem like anything has changed, though.

It really seemed like my boss was going to cry today as he tried to convince me to stay. I've worked with him for 6 years, and that's a really long time. Really long. I was a student employee most of that time, but worked at least 20 hours a week the whole time. Joe was there even longer than I, and Steve got sad when he left, too.

I like my boss and coworkers, but it seems like I should have left long ago. I don't have any wistful feelings about the evidence of my upcoming departure... my shifts are posted as "open" on the board, etc. I did have a little knot of concern as I gave up my parking contract. Maybe it's because my free reign night parking was such a relief, such a relaxing contrast to the stress of the job.

But, I won't need that anymore, right?

It's like I'm in limbo...

Yeah. I still go to that place... where circumstances have become so bizarre that I never would have imagined it... and I'm still going there until June 12. Then, lord knows what will happen. No health insurance, no swimming pool... no income. It's weird. But, even with the financial shock of it all, I'll be better off.

P.S. Anyone want to buy a guitar?

I am so happy, I'm doing a jig. My last day is June 12. I will be incredibly poor. I am incredibly poor. I don't even care. My movie isn't even done. I don't care. I've got nowhere to go. I don't care. I am liberated.
