This will be much more detailed about work than I would ever write before. More brave now since I’m almost done. I wrote about how yesterday was party day. I also wrote about how my last week was not a normal last week because I keep getting calls about decisions on things that will happen … More How to Ruin a Moment
I think today is the day my departure from work will start to feel real. Today is the day of my Zoom farewell party. Today is the day people from across the system will show they like me just enough to log into a Zoom call to say goodbye. I did receive four nice messages … More Party Day
My memories reminded me that I once took a career aptitude test after saying I didn’t know what I wanted to be when I grew up. Back then it was just a fun idea for a post. Now I feel like I should do it again and take it more seriously. A lot of writing … More What Do I Want to Be When I Grow Up?
I am 10 days away from my last day at work. I’ve been in the same profession with the same organization for 25 years. Now, in 10 days I will be ending that long chapter of my life.

So, yesterday, I wrote about turning the page and starting a new chapter even if the new chapter is a mystery. That’s easier said than done. If I was the only person my actions impacted I would likely pack my bags and move back to my home state. I don’t know that I would consider … More How to Turn the Page?
I wrote this one a year ago today. This is an ongoing issue. I’ve been looking at job openings again and I opt not to apply for a lot of them because I don’t feel qualified. I’ve also reached a point where I want less, not more when it comes to career. I want to … More Self Doubt
One thing hasn’t changed with working from home for almost three months – watching the clock. I wake up early every day. My clock watching starts then. Dreading the time when I have to clock into work and turn my home into my office. I then watch the clock for the morning right at 9am … More Clock Watching
