I'm going to skip out of work early and say goodbye to a coworker who's leaving today. He (like others before him, and probably more to follow) have found other opportunities to move on to. He's not running from the situation here, but rather to something new and exciting. I wish him all the luck. Times like this make me realize that life is really about the journey - who you meet, what you learn from each other, and not what the daily sales figures were 117 days ago.
On that happy note, I bid you adieu.
