Part of my main job ending this week is having to endure the dreaded goodbye lunch, which I’m so not looking forward to.
Anticipated tedious goodbye lunch conversations:
- “So what comes next for you"?”
Fake answer: “Omg, so much I don’t even know where to start! Teaching, learning, so much going on! Oh, I meant to ask you about your [insert clever subject change] – how is that going, anyway?”
Real answer: “Pretty much fear and uncertainty. Self doubt. Questioning everything. Some prayer, probably. Twenty job applications all hanging in limbo. Unemployment office visit outlook: likely!”
--> SO not looking forward to this.
