7 days to go...
let's look at the last 3 :)
My very last day at work. Wowza.
I started working there in 2010, and it's been a roller coaster.
I'm proud of my research and the skills I have picked up;
I'm excited to see where my life leads now, but I was a bit sad to go.
Sadness that was made better by cupcakes...
|note the DO NOT EAT post it.|
There was (clockwise) a blackberry cobbler, mint chocolate chip, mochachino, dark chocolate with chocolate and chocolate, pumpkin cheesecake and a turtle cupcake. I managed to bring one of each home with me, and I'm sure dad and I will be enjoying them during the week as we keep packing.
My boss also brought in lunch from Neomondes. I don't care how you THINK you feel about Lebanese food, you need to go get something from here. Anything. Just go.
And then, I finally said goodbye to my lab.
I work here alone (with my PI, of course) so every page of every notebook on that bottom shelf was done by me: every experiment, every data analysis, every protocol.
after work, I headed down to Charlotte to say goodbye to a few people there.
|the welcome committee.|
Saturday morning we got up bright and early and headed to the Ren Fest.
These are definitely things that are better seen, than read, so just..look :)
|leather cuffs with some of my favorite things..|
|fabulous leather work and colors!|
|and MORE headpieces.|
I obviously had fun with those.
After Ren Fest we headed out to dinner for BBQ!!
|more like "goodbye NC!"|
|Glad I managed to sneak in some BBQ before I left.|
Finally, we met up with another friend of mine at a local bar,
to toast to old friends, my leaving and Mr. Brennan's fabulous 30th birthday.
Which he got a drinking horn as a present for.
He's happier than he looks.
I wish I would have taken a picture of the 15th anniversary Sweetwater ESB that I drank,
or of the various positions Shiva can find to sleep in during a car ride.
But, I did neither.
I also wish I had something fun to say about Sunday.
But, I did the usual.
Eat, Pack, Pack, Pack, Sleep, Pack, pack.
what about you- anything fun?
