Bittersweet End

Today was the last day that my job was open which meant that there were a lot of people that I had to say goodbye to and would probably hardly ever or never see again. On top of that, over the last few months I have watched several close coworkers (whom I have worked with for over a year and four months) reach their end date and move on with life. Everyone that I watched leave has caused me to regret my decision to go to Mexico but not a much as today. I based my decision partly on the fact that there would be someone whom I was already familiar with, that was going to go to Mexico with me. Plus I could use the extra money as well as a vacation :-D. However, he backed out at the last minute and finished today instead. I understand why he did what he did but it still makes it very hard for me to want to go. So I will be in Mexico training the new employees on how to run the machines until the end of June, when I reach my end date. I will be going down on the 8th of April and will be gone for 3 weeks. Then I come home for two days and then go back down for another two weeks. They have told me that we probably will be done training in Mexico before June, so that is something to look forward to. I really hope that they are right because I will not go beyond June for anything. I guess what it really comes down to, is that I feel like this company has wasted five plus years of my life and they continue to want more. I however, have plans for my life. I want to be a geoscientist and graduate collage with a doctorate degree. So I will press on and not get down on the fact that everyone must at some time, move on in there life. But it is sad to see good friends go, and to all my friends from work who read this, I wish you all the best of luck in everything that you do. Keep in touch.
