No, but in all seriousness I am so incredibly grateful. Grateful for the obvious work experience, but more so for all the little (and big) life lessons that I have collected over the last few months. Everything from getting better at writing professional emails, to learning how to interact with different personalities and figuring out the type of work environment that works best for me. I will apply, and continue to develop, the interpersonal skills I have learned, particularly when it comes to communication and mediation. But also, and perhaps more importantly, I was able to grow my intrapersonal skills in ways unimaginable. Navigating the world is not always so cut and dry, but I’ve been fortunate enough to work with a group of people that have grounded me. I was supported and challenged and trusted with a great deal of responsibility, giving me the comfort and confidence that propelled my professional and personal growth. So thank you, everyone here at Firewood. You all have been more than accommodating, and you are the reason why this is such a bittersweet see-you-later. You guys have not only been wonderful co-workers and peers, but role-models and friends. I’m leaving with a full heart and belly (those good-bye cupcakes were so yummy). Thanks for making Firewood my home, and such a happy memory.
Happy Mother’s Day
