Today was my last day of work. So very strange. I've been so lucky to be able to work at such an interesting place. I love traveling and love learning about different cultures and languages. Working with Newcomers to Canada has let me dream of travel while learning so many things about the world.
My workplace is so diverse. We took some pictures yesterday and in one picture alone it was like a mini United Nations: Canada, Romania, Pakistan, Syria, Cambodia, Burundi, China. You know, just a regular day at the office. Any job can be a good job if you're with good people.
My coworkers have been so wonderful to me the last few days (and always). I was able to go for brunch with my old department this weekend. Then the girls got us surprise samosas. Then they planned a surprise potluck breakfast on Tuesday morning. That evening about 12 of us went out for dinner. It was such an honour that these amazing, busy women took time out of their lives to spend sometime with me to say goodbye.
And take this dress for instance. My coworker bought it for herself but found that it didn't fit. She brought it for me to try on at work and I just never even took it off. How amazing is that? Thank you Sarah!
dress: Planet, gift from coworker
shoes: Melissa from Gravity Pope, Calgary
Today I am overwhelmingly, inside-ly and outside-ly, all encompassing-ly, thankful...
