TBT: First Day...
Barack...

Sadz...

Another turning point;
A fork stuck in the road.
Time grabs you by the wrist
Directs you where to go.

For those of you who don't know, these lyrics are from the Green Day song "Good Riddance (Time of Your Life)"

So make the best of this test
And don't ask why.
It's not a question,
But a lesson learned in time.

As you may recall from my post yesterday, today was my last day at a job where I've worked for nearly 11 years. Just a hair more than a quarter of my life.

It's something unpredictable,
But in the end it's right.
I hope you had the time of your life.

While I know that this new job is a great opportunity and I'm very much looking forward to it, it's hard to not get a little emotional about those 11 years and the people you've met and accomplishments you've made.

So take the photographs
And still-frames in your mind.
Hang it on a shelf
In good health and good time.

I've done what I think to be a commendable job of keeping it together this whole final week. No blatant freak outs.

It's something unpredictable,
But in the end it's right.
I hope you had the time of your life.

Then, on the drive home, WXRT played this song and, for the first time ever, it spoke to me. 

And I broke down a bit. 

Damn you, Billie Joe Armstrong. I hate you right now.

At least I got higher billing than the Poppers. Heh.
