My final day at Time Out as a full-time employee…

So today is my final day at Time Out as a full-time employee. I’ve worked with them since February 1999, shortly after completing my journalism course. I’ve got a certain amount of freelance work lined up – all of which looks fairly interesting – but it’s still going to be strange not going into the office every day. There are a lot of people that I am going to miss, and a couple that I probably won’t.

This evening is my leaving ‘do’ – to be held in the upstairs of a sausage pub in Fitzrovia (don’t ask) – and I’m really ‘conflicted’ about it. Obviously I want to say goodbye to everyone, but I don’t really consider it to be a time of celebration – more of necessity.
