Today was my last day at my first work

Some of you probably already know it, today was my very last day at my first work ever. I've worked there for two years but now it's over. I held on pretty well until almost the end but knew I would crack up at some point. At around 3pm I started to say goodbye to each of my colleague. When I arrived at one of m favorite, who i really consider a friend, I totally cracked up, i started crying, I could even really say goodbye to the ones left it was awful, it took me almost an hour to stop crying, it's really weird. I reall don't care about losing my job (I found another one anyway). But there are some eprson I won't get to see every day now and it really feels weird. I guess the fact that it's my first job doesn't help... I really don't feel well right now (hugs welcome )

This can't last. This misery can't last. I must remember that and try to control myself. Nothing lasts really. Neither happiness nor despair. Not even life lasts very long. There'll come a time in the future when I shan't mind about this anymore, when I can look back and say quite peacefully and cheerfully how silly I was. No, no, I don't want that time to come ever. I want to remember every minute, always, always to the end of my days.

If they are friends of yours, you can alway stay in touch and see them outside of work.

Yeah I know they keep telling me that but still it's weird, i guess also because it's a part of my life which is now over, and it's really the first time it has happened to me... it really feels weird

It's not really weird, cause mostly you see your colleagues all week, even more than your friends and family.

Re: Today was my last day at my first work

That is so funny because today is also my last day of work at my first job. I worked as a Retail clerk at Tower Records for about 13 months now and today is my last day there because the store is shutting down tomorrow.

Bibi. Lets go home and cuddle together to make each other feel better.

Re: Today was my last day at my first work

Well, Greg, I've had my last day at first job day little more than a year ago... and I remember I went through something similar. I knew I'd still be able to keep in touch with certain people I cared for, yet the very moment I started to say bye - it was also just before the summer holidays - I knew I was kinda walking up those stairs for the last time, walking along that corridor for the last time... and even though it wasn't even literally true - I've been there again, as a matter of fact - I knew it was the last time I was there as an employee... and that a chapter of my life was getting to the end.

I didn't cry, but on my way out, as I walked through the courtyard, I looked back and felt weird... and for some time I have kind of avoided driving by there, cuz it felt weird to do so without being a part of it anymore.

So here's a very big for you, and good luck with your new work experience!
