I did the math.
(It hurt my brain a little, but I did it!)
This is a graphic representation of my adult life, calculated from the day of my 18th birthday through this Friday, May 16 (a period of exactly 97 months):
The first month of being an adult, I was an unemployed college student. Easy peasy.
After exactly one month of unemployment, I began my internship at a local utility company for the summer. I spent seven months there. Again... super easy.
Then, halfway through December of that year (eight months after I turned 18), I got the job I have today.
I've changed positions within the company.
The company has changed around me.
But for 89 months I've called this my job.
(That's one month shy of seven-and-a-half years.)
And so, today... I announce that Friday May 16 will be the end of my tenure here.
It's a lot of things, all at once.
And it's going to be an adventure.
