Last Day of Work

Hi, reader. I wrote this in 2006 and it's now more than five years old. So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it! I'm keeping this up for historical archive purposes, but the me of today may 100% disagree with what I said then. I rarely edit posts after publishing them, but if I do, I usually leave a note in italics to mark the edit and the reason. If this post is particularly offensive or breaches someone's privacy, please contact me.

I feel as though my last day at Salon should get more thought and attention. I've been there since May of 2003 and it's the longest job I've ever had. But it was a job that never turned into a career, and never would. So -- bittersweet, like everything else.
