Last Day At Work

Today’s my last day at work…
Days like this always feel weird and sad.
Weird because you’re leaving something you’ve come to know so well to venture off into a somehow unknown future, sad because you’re leaving behind a load of memories and mainly because you know you’ll be missing the people, you actually spent most of your day with for over 3.5 years, so much.

I guess it’s always the people you get to know, how they touch your life, the different relationships you build with them, the good times, and even the not so good ones, that gets to you.

Why did I take this step? Well, I guess, I just felt the time was right to move on, all the omens were right, maybe the stars were in place too or whatever else you believe in.
It just falls into my basic strategy of trying to set clearer goals for myself in life and to take the steps I see necessary to reach them.
Moving on to something else in my career life was simply one of those steps.

I’d like to thank all the guys at work for the great ride. It was great getting to know you all and to get a chance to work with every single one of you. I hope that we’ll get to carry our personal relationships well on into the future.

I’d like to thank the company for having me as part of the team. I’m proud of these years that I spent in it, the role I had and the work I did. I’m very happy to see the company growing further and going on to higher grounds.
I wish you all the best of luck.

    It was a great pleasure and so much fun knowing and working with you Drako.
    You’re one of the people I’ll miss seeing every day the most, talking to, joking with and even having small fights with.

    Thank you for your wishes, and I too wish you all the happiness and success in your life.

    Our friendship is dear to me, and I hope that it’ll keep on growing.
    And we can always run into each other by “pure” coincidence in G

    How about the new gal at work? I will very much miss your company, our chats, and the constant harassment… Although I’ve known you for a couple of months only, I hope that we will continue on talking, chatting, and learning new expressions together ;) Best of luck my dear.

    Well, when I heard that you’re leaving today, believe it or not,I got upset and I realized that I’ll be missing you ( at least missing harrassing you :-) and I know that I was such a pain in the ass sometimes( Hope you haven’t left work because of the project we’ve been working on together in our respective companies ;well, if you have ,I totally understand ;-)
    Wish you all the best man, you deserve it!

    I hate departures and farwells for I know the meaning of leaving a certain place a certain job, friends etc but I would like to wish you all the best in your future endeavours and hope that one day we could meet in real. One thing keep blogging for this is the only way to keep in touch with you!Good luck Marwen :)

    Koffiekitten, thanks a bunch :)
    I should be starting in March, although I wish I could afford to take a year off from work right now and explore some other projects.

    Roba, Thanks a lot :)

    Sleeplessjojo, well you know that among the people I’ll miss the most are the people who are with me in the same office, and that includes you although you’re still new.
    We’re a really cool bunch, and I’ll miss all the fun we have together :)
    I wish you the best of luck too :)

    Snawsi, lol, first of all I’d like to assure you that I’m not leaving because of the project we worked on together, although it did help me in taking the decision :P Just kidding…
    Thank you for your wishes, I too wish you the best of luck :)

    Hannibal, same here. I hate goodbyes, having to leave places, people, things. But I guess it’s all a part life that we all have to deal with, although it’s hard every time.
    Thank you for you kind words, I wish you the very best too. Blogging will go on of course, and hopefully it will help keep the contact. I too hope that we get to meet in real life one day :)

    Ahhhhhhhhhhh, I’m so relieved now, no guilty conscience then :-)
    Well, I think I’m gonna follow your footsteps Marwen as soon as some good opportunity comes( guess you know the reasons)
    It’s always good to start over , to shift, to improve one’s life ;-) Good Luck man !

    3.5yrs, that’s abt the time usually IT people transition out of their current position.
    However it looks like some are following suit here, is there a drain occuring or abt to happen?
    Anyhow, all the best at ur next place !
    change is always good :-)

    Hey, mabrouk, and hope you’ll be happier in your next job. I hope you don’t mind me asking if ur next job is in tunisia or outside. Anyhow, good luck MMM.

  • http://www.subzeroblue.com/ MMM

    Napo, Thanks :)
    Yeah, it seems that IT people do tend to move on to something else every 3-4 years.

    Karim, well I’m not sure how much anyone could miss a place like hell, but I get the idea.

    Troubadour, thank you for your wishes :) Now it’s your turn ;)
    I wish you the best of luck :)

    Hatem, Thank you for the comment and wishes my friend :) I really appreciate it.
    I wish you the very best in your life and career too.

    Zied, thanks :) Well my next job is in Tunisia, but to give you some exclusive future insight, the one after it might not be ;)
    Good luck with your studies, your career and life in general :)

    All the best Marwen!

    Do you know what my motto is?

    It says: “dont’ be sad because good things came to an end, smile because they happened”

    ;)

    I wish you the best of luck too with your studies, career and everything.

    I see Paul Coelho’s “Alchemist” influenced you quite a bit:-)
    Good luck with your journey.. Although, job-hopping in a country like Tunisia doesn’t always end with thank-you notes, but rather F-U ones. I guess this is a good thing; a positive “omen” that is.
