It’s bittersweet that these final days of my current job are some of my most enjoyable to work with. We’ve locked the dev team into maintenance mode, sales requests have died down, I’m taking a hands off approach to my team, and I finally have a chance to fix all those dev issues we never had time for.
With the assistance of fajita and the team, I hope to have migrated and shutdown four servers, documented fourteen key systems, and built in three new automation processes to assist the company after my absence.
For a brief two week window, I’m ironically getting to perform the job that would have kept me here if I were ever able to perform it.
However, I’m not oblivious to the fact that my stress hasn’t actually disappeared, simply transferred to coworkers. If you remember your physics, the total stress within an isolated system cannot change - it is said to be conserved over time. Best wishes, team!
My Final Fantasy team is doing horrible this year.
