“So Long and Thanks for all the Fish!” – the dolphins
Though Maggie did suggest I call it the “Sock email” (Dobby is FREEE!), I liked the Hitchhiker vibe of that name. I wrote it Thursday morning, to give folks a bit of time before I did the final shutdown of my laptop. I never know what’s most appropriate to say in emails like that, nor what the right group of people would be to send it to . I gave it my best shot though and no-one SEEMED to be offended, so it must have worked! I really did work with a lot of talented people, and will miss them.
“I think I’m quite ready for another adventure” – Bilbo
I hope I am anyway. I never like looking for a job, but it’s always a new adventure once I’ve found my next position. I’ve learned a bit over the years on what’s the right fit – my biggest challenge is to know “what I want to be when I grow up.” I suppose it’s a good thing to be a bit of a generalist, but in a way I miss the days when I was a tech guru in a specific field. I suppose jack of all trades isn’t so bad! It will certainly be an adventure finding the right thing in Jacksonville – I’m looking forward to understanding the city a lot better.
