Sarah McLachlan – I Will Remember You

leaving-your-job

I don’t quit.  I have been doing Friday Nineties since 2010.  This site is nine years old (which is like, 150 in Internet Years).  And I have worked the same job for thirteen years.  But this is my last day.  I don’t talk about myself a lot (since I am obviously very important and can’t use my fame to…get visitors to come to the site) but this is a big deal.  And I wanted to pick an appropriate song to commemorate it.  But in a cruel twist of fate, I did “End of the Road” like three years ago.  Stupid longevity.

I am moving on to do sort of the same thing but just for one client instead of getting passed around a bunch of clients like a really good joint.  I am proud of what I have done and I am excited for what’s next.  And maybe since I am changing this I can change all sorts of stuff now.  Maybe make some suggestions in the comments.  A tattoo?  Wearing civil war uniforms all day as regular clothes?  The sky’s the limit!

So here is Sarah McLachlan singing “I Will Remember You”.  Not sure what the song is about (I have to get this done before I leave for work since I don’t want to be late on my last day) but I won’t forget my colleagues, especially since I will still talk to them every day.  But not in the same way.  It’s weird.  Anyway, if you pride yourself for your loyalty, maybe once in a while ask yourself if you are JUST loyal, or is there a little fear of change mixed in there, too.  You might be surprised.

    I only have fear of change, no loyalty.

    First of all, congrats. This is a big deal.
    Secondly, I recently quit my job of 9+ years. Now it was toxic there so it was for different reasons than yours, but even so, I didn’t hang around for 9 years JUST for the toxic environment, I also had a lot of people I cared about there so I miss them and it was still sad leaving.
    So, onward and upward! Good job, we are proud of you, but still sad for your last day.
    Also, this song has many nostalgic bittersweet associations for me, so you really sucked me into your world today Acadia.

      It’s a cool place, right? Bean bag chairs and whatnot.

    Congratulations again. If the kids at the new school are mean to you at first it just means that they are jealous.

    Change can be scary! Rescue a dog and name it Pluto to tie this Friday Nineties post together with real life!

      I hope when you said rescue you are willing to accept “steal”.

    We are all sea cucumbers being awkwardly posed in front of a fisherman’s pants. Dwell upon that.

    I have neither loyalty nor fear of change, just a deep and abiding laziness. In fact, I’m so lazy that

    You should take this opportunity to start with a clean slate, to rebrand yourself. Consider ditching those tacky tights and wearing a kilt all the time.

    “I am moving on to do sort of the same thing but just for one client instead of getting passed around a bunch of clients like a really good joint.” So kind of like Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman, right? Cool!

    Congratulations! Looks like you’re finally getting the key to the executive washroom. Whoo hoo! Don’t forget to clean behind the toilets. 😉

    As for change… change nothing else. Except your underwear. And occasionally, your socks. Because you are perfect exactly as you are.
