Les gens qui ne rient jamais ne sont pas des gens sérieux

Be who you are and say what you mean, those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind

As I walked away, I tried my very best to feel, if not sad, at least a little reflective, or solemn, or something.

As hard as I tried though, no matter how many times I reminded myself I met good friendly people there, or I learned a little maybe, I couldn't help the feeling of euphoria bubbling up inside. I couldn't keep that silly grin off my face as I said a cheery 'do widzenia!' to the doorman, knowing full well I wouldn't see him again. I couldn't shake the feeling even when I missed three trams in a row and reminded myself sharply that the money wasn't going to be regularly coming into my bank account any more.

I really don't care.

The summer is ahead of me, and I'm free of that place!

I'm free of incomprehensible texts and pages and pages of barely concealed advertising. I'm free of American spelling and infuriating translations that stick to Polish sentence constructions. I'm free of incompetent management and awful communist writing styles. I'm free!

Congratulations!! I look forward to hearing about your new job (once you've created your own role)...enjoy the summer stress-free and spelling-free.

Don't even get me started on American spelling...Royal Society of Chemistry has now allowed the US spelling of sulphur on GCSE and A-level exam papers...grrrr...

Congratulations, Becca! There's no better feeling than the final day of a job you don't enjoy...

American spelling does suck. Go (much underappreciated) Canadian spelling!

Glad you've broken free. Must feel amazing.

Don't take it personally Aaron, but yes. A big problem.

Thank you for feeling my pain girls, I have to retrain myself to write centre, labour and organise now.
