The day job I’ve talked about endlessly on this site, finally comes to an end today. So excuse me if I’m a little extra bubbly, bellas and fellas! I’ve put in four and a half solid years of employment, and today I graduate from the Village Voice Media family. I will sincerely miss my co-workers and many aspects of my job, but still — I feel like my life is beginning anew. I feel like I’m about to graduate from college, but there is no fear. Only excitement. And Janelle Monae’s Lettin’ Go is my theme song.
Sure, Miss Monae’s song is about being let go by your employer, but the feeling of the song relates perfectly to my own circumstances. It’s a brand new day, and I’m gonna live my own life.
Wish me luck and light, y’all. And if you’ve got any great last-day-at-work theme song suggestions, send em my way!
