So, the countdown has started. I cannot believe this is almost the end, feels like I was just going to see the B52s for free with Erika, Tracey, Rick and Jonathan, during my orientation in 2004. 2004 ... seems a long time ago.
So, I have a job - a grown up job where they'll actually pay me in real dollars.
I have been going through an emotional rollercoaster, I get weepy thinking about everyone I might never see again, happy thinking of everyone I never have to see again and nervous when I think of what the future will bring. It adds to the nervousness that this will also be the real beginning of married life.

Wow, seeing this written down makes me hyperventilate!
I guess there are a few things I want to say to people at SI. When I started here, I didn't expect to care when I left. I expected to do my 2 years and leave without it being a big deal. But it is a big deal and it's the people. This has been my home for the last 2 years and some people have become family. So, I am allowed to be emotional. I will miss you guys - y'all know who you are!
