can't sleep

Next week, I have my last four days at my job. I haven't posted about this publicly anywhere else, yet. Next week is mostly going to be writing up documentation and transferring my projects as best I can into the care of others.

I'm really dreading the conversations about why I'm leaving. I've hashed out several versions (what my mom is calling "Pollyanna" versions) so I can have a conversation that last more than thirty seconds when my coworkers of 3 years ask me what I'm doing next, why I'm leaving.

I would guess that most of them really know, but we Won't Talk About It.

I have an exit interview scheduled with the two administrators that I think it will be most effective to talk to. I have a one-on-one with my direct supervisor, but I have made sure she will not be at the meeting with the other administrators.

I can't stop thinking through these conversations in my head. I keep thinking I need to write up an outline of notes so I don't forget anything. I'm still trying to figure out which points are the most important ones to bring up in my one hour of exit interview time.

I keep writing documentation in my head but I keep preventing myself from sitting down and actually doing it until I am sitting at work, getting actually-paid to do this shit. I am trying to let it go, I know that I won't *forget* what I need to say, I can't stop thinking about it... It will be easy to pour it all out of my head when the time comes.

I deliberately rarely talk about my job; I know most of you don't know where I work -- that's on purpose. I like to have a fairly strong separation between my personal life and my work life. But, I did connect some of my professional social media to workplace people, and I need to figure out how I want to untangle that.

I don't want to see any of these people again, with about 3 exceptions. I've never had a job where I felt so strongly that I needed to cut all ties with all of them. But I think I will wait to start blocking people until after my last day. I don't need to make my last week any harder than it already will be.

I can fake it for four days.

Bear did a gorgeous G1 to G3 update of one of the original Flutter Ponies and you can see her right here on Ebay:


She is GORGEOUS and I am so proud of my Bear for doing such a wonderful job!

Please bid if you are so inclined, but absolutely, PLEASE share this link around. We are trying to pay off about 2k in debt right now from medical stuff and unavoidable car expenses.
