I'm done

Just had my exit interview at my old employer, which means - more or less - that I'm free to go whenever. I'll probably hang about til the usual time anyway, though; not in any rush to get stuck in rush-hour traffic.

It's a weird feeling. I've been working in this building for four and a half years; the idea that I'm never going to be back in it after today is really quite alien.

Two weeks from now, on the 16th, I'll be flying into Dundee to start at RTW. That's a much more daunting prospect; it's been so long since I started a new job, I'm not sure what I'll have to do. I don't know what training to expect, what forms I'll have to fill in, or even how long it'll take to meet the people I'm going to be working with, hopefully for at least as long as I've been here. The fact that it's a completely new industry, with an entirely different type of product that's more complex by an order of magnitude than anything I've had to work on here, isn't too comforting either.

Still, I'm looking forward to the challenge. As busy as I've been kept where I am, it was rarely very taxing on an intellectual level - at least, not after the first few months.
