So today is my last day with CNet. As I type this, I'm drafting up a list of things for the people who will be taking over, and I look upon the day with a certain sense of trepidation. I'm cleaning up my desk and packing away the things that I've brought with me, or that Erin has sent to decorate my desk. The photographs have been tucked in my laptop bag, the paperwork put in nice, neat stacks, the miniature Death Star back in its Empire At War box, the Non Sequitur calendar one of the last few things of mine remaining on my desk.. I've been getting everything organized so that tomorrow, when my desk is empty, it won't be too much cleaning work for whoever comes by to put it all away.
Another opportunity presented itself to me, and I would be a fool to pass it up, so it's time for me to to say goodbye, with a Logan's Run reference no less. (The movie, not the book, I realize, although I know both.) I also turn 30 this month (Renewal approaches!), something else I'm approaching with hesitation. It all seemed so far away when I was 15, waiting for my driver's license so I'd be free. By the end of the month, I'll be rolling that two over to a three. Honestly, I'm not all that worked up about it, but it's something to think about.
I won't be gone from the site, and who knows, maybe I'll return to CNet some day in the future. I did it before, and the future is a wide open space. To all of you who have read and commented on my blog, it won't go away and I'm sure I'll still be shooting wild rants from the field every so often.
Until we meet again, this is Cliff "Devinoch" Hicks, wishing you good night and good luck.
