Saying Goodbye

Yesterday was officially my LAST day at ThomasARTS! Although I've done my fair share of complaining about work, it was actually pretty sad to say goodbye. It may not have been the ideal job, but it was still my first REAL job, you know, that wasn't an internship or didn't involve wearing a candy striper dress (Oh the joys of working at Rubys!) In the last year, I've probably spent about as much time with my coworkers as I have with my own husband! A lot of them became really good friends that I know I'll keep in touch with for a long time.

For my last day, my department took me out to lunch at Arella Pizzeria which was actually pretty good. Of course I waited until my LAST day to find one of the few good places to eat up there. Hailey also got me a little going away gift, some halloween baking supplies (cookie cutters, cupcake wrappers and decorations). It was really sweet of her and I'm pretty excited to use them since I actually have time now to do things like that! 

Also, somehow I completely FORGOT to take a picture with my department before I left! Which means I managed to work at ThomasARTS for 12 months without taking a single picture with any of my coworkers. (Not to mention, this blog post will now be pretty boring because I have no pictures.)

I don't want to get too sentimental here though. I'd be lying if I said I wasn't extremely relieved to be done and excited to have some time off. Keith and I are both ready to move on to the next thing, especially since we've got some pretty exciting things ahead of us: applying to law schools, packing up our apt, and heading off to Dallas!

So goodbye ThomasARTS, hello Texas!
