It is 1:00 pm on Tuesday, December 16th. I have 4 working days left.
I have packed up a few more things from my office. I have deleted REALLY OLD files and saved others on a shared drive. I have taken all my personal items down from the walls. It really feels like someone has passed away and I am cleaning out their belongings.
But it’s me that is moving on and that’s why I feel a little empty. I guess there is a grieving process to go through in retiring from one’s job after 30+ years. I smile as I write this; however, thinking how the freedom I will experience will be a major paradigm shift for me.
I also conducted my final class lectures last week. After inviting the December graduates to stand up and be recognized, I told them about my impending retirement. My students reacted so wonderfully in both of my classes, with hugs and handshakes.
These are the photos of my almost empty office and my empty classroom. I shall embrace the changes and the empty spaces.
