Not counting work, company benefits and co-worker friends, here are some of the little things I will miss about my old job:
1 My delight at P20 and P50 change because I immediately think, "Yay! Pang-toll!" (see related post here)
2 The happy colors in my bag from my receipt-organizing-system - I got these flat (non-gusseted) pouches from H&M. They come in seafoam green, dark salmon and cream. The green one contains receipts for reimbursement at the office like receipts from meetings at restos. The salmon one contains receipts of personal expenses. I have a cardstock divider in this pouch to separate receipts from credit card tape to get those freebies my card offers. The cream one holds my receipts for liquidation like gas and health expenses. I have to admit that I loved looking in my bag and seeing the pretty colors of my pouches.
3 The winter-cold office temperature especially during the BER months - an excuse to wear pretty coats and clothes made out of wool
4 The carpeted hallways that make it easy to wear 4-to-5-inch heels all day
5 The calming nighttime drive home along C6 - For some reason, I find the combination of the many lampposts on that highway, the absence of traffic and my iPod music playing from my car's speakers very soothing. Now that I won't be working, I imagine I won't be driving at night nor alone so much anymore.
I will miss (a lot of the big things but also) these little delightful things.
But I am certain there will be a different set of delightful little things as this big adventure begins.
