It’s been a remarkably short 7 months. I can’t believe my work term is over already :O. It’s time to get ready to head back to Toronto. I guess it’s good timing as my blog has been winding down quite a bit too in terms of views. Hopefully, I’ve accomplished something significant during that time.
However, one thing I did do that totally surprised me, was make a real impact on my coworkers. I even got marked down as being optimistic under any circumstance as a strength :O. Somehow they were happy enough with me that they organized a farewell party for me and gave me a few gifts.
I got a good bye card sort of thing, where everyone wrote a short message on it. I’ve seen this done in North America, but it’s the first time I’ve gotten one on a piece of cardboard.
From some coworkers, I also received a complete set of the Nausicca, Valley of the Wind manga. Apparently the movie only covered the first two volumes, I can’t wait to get home and dig into this.
I also received a RX-78-2 Version 2.0 Gundam from some other coworkers :O. I was so surprised when they gave it to me. I guess I gotta try real hard to make this one nice too :P. I’m sure my coworkers are waiting for pictures of the completed one.
And of course, going home requires… packing… sigh… I didn’t want to send boxes home before, but this is looking a little impossible. Oh well, back to packing!
