Last day of work celebrations

On Friday March 14, I went into the office at the Central PA Convention & Visitors Bureau for my final day of work before leaving for the Peace Corps in June for Moldova. I’ve only been at the Visitor’s Bureau for about 15 months and when I think back and reflect upon my time there, I am overwhelmed with how much I have learned not only about myself but about the tourism industry (which is a LOT of fun) and technology. I don’t think it will really set in until about a week later that I’m not going back… it’s hard to wrap my head around that right now.

On Friday my coworkers blessed me with some pizza, cake, and ice cream for lunch where we shared stories and laughed. I loved how they included the flag of Moldova on the cake!

After work I met up with two friends and we went to a new restaurant in town called 100 Degrees Hot Pot where we shared in a lot of laughter together…

Who knew trying to eat Udon noodles with chopsticks would be so difficult? Queue more laughter…

Then after dinner I met up with more friends for more celebrating and some frozen yogurt at the local Sweet Frog yogurt place…

I felt so honored that so many were able to come and join in on the final day of work in Central PA.

In the meantime, I have set out on a month long adventure to travel in the US to visit some dear, far-away friends. I wish I could have been able to make it to ALL the places where friends have relocated to…but hopefully that will happen another time.

I am so grateful for this time to celebrate as well as spend some quality time with loved ones.
