Yesterday was my 43rd birthday.
It was a nice low key day spent with my best friend, his beagle and my Squeaks.
The day before that was my last day at my job at CA. I had been in that job for 8+ years and I am very good at it. Leaving won't change that.
However it was time for a change.
As such, tomorrow morning, bright and early, I start my new as a Technology Architect III at a new company.
I am excited and scared and sad.
I don't handle change very well, even ones I put into action. But I know that this is something I need right now to grow professionally. However, I will miss all of the co-workers I leave behind.
They were my family in as much as they could be.
So here is to the end of a year for me and a work era and to the beginning of a new year and new path professionally.
