It’s 5:15am on Saturday, August 9, 2008. Other than breaks for lunch, dinner, and an appointment with my therapist, I’ve been working since around 9:45am yesterday. I’m tired. I’ve got to be up and ready to leave for Chicago in just over 4 hours. I still have to drive to my house from Newmark. But…I finished every single thing that I had on my list that I wanted/needed to get done before I quit CEE. Today was my last day. It lasted 19.5 hours from start of work to end of work. I’m done. I feel like I can leave without looking back or wishing that I had accomplished something else.
I’ll miss a lot of the people here, but I won’t miss the environment that the leadership have created. I’m moving on and I hope that it works out for the best for everyone involved.
