The day has finally come! Today was my last day working at my current job and I couldn’t be happier. I officially handed in my resignation four weeks ago and have been counting down the days ever since!
The last few weeks have been hectic, I have been running around getting medical, dental and vaccination forms signed, spending my life in an internet cafe scanning countless documents and getting everything prepared for the big move.
I have been winding down in work for the past week or so, and it’s been very hard to stay motivated as all I can think about is Emirates, however my work colleagues have all been so lovely and made sure I was given a good send off. We had drinks with my whole department last week and then some seriously good lunches at Nando’s, Bills and my favourite stir fry place in Borough market, Wok It.
The entire office gathered around my desk at 4pm to say their farewells. I then did a little speech thanking the company and all of my colleagues (whilst wanting the ground to swallow me up!!!). I was mortified when they all came over as I hate when the attention is on me, but luckily it was short and sweet! I was extremely lucky and got a very generous MAC gift card and my favourite Krispy Kreme doughnuts. I will definitely be buying some red lipstick with that!
And that wraps it up! I’ve had an incredible two years at my current job and have learnt so much along the way, whilst having a laugh and making some great friends, however, I am definitely ready for the next chapter!
I now have just over two weeks before I fly out to Dubai. I’m really looking forward to spending as much time with family and friends as possible before I leave. I guess I should also buy new suitcases and start my packing! How exciting.
15 days to go…
Thanks for reading.
