Rantglass - because that's how things are.


Exit stage right.

“We heard. True ah?”

“So soon! Why?”

“Where are you going?”

“When’s your last day?”

“So secretive lah you!”

Snicker.

Word travels fast, and I spent two weeks fielding questions, left and right.

One thing still has not changed: bloody hell, I am such a bad, bad liar.

Does not stop word from getting around, though.

I tried to refrain from being too emotionally attached to the workplace: to stop being all sentimental, to not feel guilty about leaving, and all that bullshit; but it did not work.

The final day came, and my heart seemed to weigh tonnes heavier. Thank-you cards all given out, I made a quick, hasty exit to fight back the tears.

It is not so much the place that I will miss, but its people. Above all, it will always be fondly remembered as my first foray into the working world.

So next week, I will have to go through that darned routine: shake hands with strangers, memorise new names and faces, shown to a brand new cubicle, handle new tasks.

“Hello.”

Again.

Yes, I surprised myself by making this big leap, too. Sadly, I am not proud of it.

On air now: Soul Meets Body, Death Cab for Cutie
