Well, yesterday was my last day in the office. I extended my stay there for a week but took two personal days, so really only worked 3 days this week (somehow I think I still managed to put in 40 hrs tho). It’s pretty hard to leave a good gig. When I think about my previous career shifts, they’ve had the mix of leaving behind something dysfunctional (for my own self anyhow) and moving towards something shiny, new and healthy. I’ve never left a job a truly loved, so it’s been a bit difficult to check myself out. I was conscious of my use of the word "we" as I discussed the future of my project… there I go again, it’s no longer my project anymore. I guess everything has to end some time, and my next gig is going to be nothing short of… wait for it… AWESOME.
I’ve got a healthy dose of excitement, fear and anxiousness all rolled up in a tiny knot just dying to get unraveled. As soon as I can sink my teeth into my new project (whatever it ends up being – a button or a menu – big or small I’ll take it!), I’ll feel more at ease. My first week, I’ll be spending 2 days at Gamefest learning up on Natal. It’ll be my 101 crash course on the mystery that is Natal. I can’t wait!
But for today (pretty much my only day off what w/ Tet in Seattle this weekend and having to work the VNSF booth all day Saturday), I veg on my couch and I catch up on Farscape. =)
