Amidst the excitement of my new job and making plans for my next year in Chicago, I forgot that I will also be saying goodbye to my food service job that I started on Valentine's Day. Although I'm beyond excited to ditch wrapping burritos and waking up at the crack of dawn, I know I'll miss seeing the co-workers that have gotten me through my first year in Chicago. Their humor, advice, and camaraderie really eased me in to Chicago and lit the fire under me to create a better future for myself.
Tomorrow I'll get my paycheck, say goodbye, and probably celebrate by unceremoniously going grocery shopping and eating some of my stock piled frozen custard from Ollie's. My new chapter begins on Wednesday.
