Well... it's over. I had my last overnight shift at work. 2 1/2 years over and they gave me a 4 minute goodbye segment live on the air along with a look back at some of my highlights over the last 2.5 years. Yes, I have appeared several times on TV and they often needed me to be funny on air.
I started to do my usual job and I get an e-mail from a senior producer of the overnight show and they wanted me to appear on the show for my final day. They had prepared a segment for me and there I was on TV talking about my new job.
The tribute was nice and after they had donuts, champagne and wine for me... yes, I drank at like 6 am ... loved it.
I had one producer take me aside and tell me that she will really miss me. She saw a bunch of my producing and editing skills and had me work in our digital media center finding and editing video for various projects. I was my own boss for the most part, but always very busy... and when someone was out I would do their job plus my new job... they don't have anyone with the skills to replace me nor was my position and what I was doing part of the job description...
It felt good to feel appreciated and to hear that they will miss me and that they don't know wat theyw ill do without me.
What feels strange is knowing that I don't have to be at work right now and sleeping during the night. Its a crazy feeling. Anyway... I am off to a bar tonight to see a friend who is a bartender.
Hope you guys are all having a good week!
