End of an era

Tomorrow is my last day at the video game company. 5+ years, the longest contract I ever had in one place. The company has grown immensely since I started, going from around 100 employees to over 400.
So tomorrow, I make my goodbyes, carry home my last books and other stuff I want to keep.
It's the first time I leave a place of work. Usually, I get fired or let go due to lack of work.
Feels...eerie. It's different to be let go than leaving. I can be terribly loyal, so leaving feels like I am not doing my work properly.

I'll be busy until I leave though. Much cleanup left to do, books to sell, stuff to recycle, Avatar comic work. Not leaving much time to think.

Sharing a fun video- fellow canadians that are old enough are going to get a blast from the past from this.

ahahah that video was so great! I remember always seeing those hinterland videos on tvo, and even in science class sometimes

Hehe, me too! I jumped up the moment I heard those little musical notes. And whoever they took to do the voice is just brilliant.

Eh, if the government of Canada sponsors this brilliant short documentary, it MUST be true!

Well at least you're leaving of your own accord this time! I bet you'll be working on something so awesome all of us will just drop dead or something upon hearing what it is. Good luck on the cleanup!

Haha, either you'll drop dead, or you'll all go:
"What? What a hack job!!"

believe me, everytime I step into my room and look what I have left to do, I shudder.
I need to get rid of more stuff.

Hilarious video! Did the Canadian Gov. really sponsor it?
Wow, 5 plus years..

Nope, not a real video, but an incredibly close spoof. They've used the same templates, music, and a pretty close narrator voice to make it look real.

You're on to bigger and better things, J! You know it, we know it, and it's about time so good luck, have fun, and keep creating! :)

I don't know about bigger and better, but it is change. Never thought it would happen that late in my career- seems like only the young'uns get that chance.
Thank you so much. Will be missing the Montreal crowd.

Heehee, if only we'd had these when we were younger- I would have paid more attention to these short films.

Good find.
