Good Riddance- Time of My Life

Today’s the last day of school. Normally I’d be pretty excited, yet somewhat melancholy…sad to see the kids go as we wave them goodbye as their busses drive away.

This year is different. I’m the one driving off. I’m leaving a place that has brought me great joy for many years. A place that helped me into the person I am today. A place with the best freaking staff a girl could ever dream of.

And I’m leaving it all to fulfill a dream. Teaching high school.

 

I’m pretty big into music. So sometimes it’s easier to describe how I feel by playing a song. So here is a song that’s been on my mind a lot this week:

 

I found this website the other day that explained how some songs meanings were misinterpreted, and Good Riddance is one of the top songs. It’s title alone should elude to what the song is about: Good Riddance. If you think about it in a condescending way, this song is telling you ‘hope you liked your time here jerk, cause now it’s over!’

However this is the number 1 prom song in America for teens to say goodbye to.

I can get behind both…but this song is helping me get through these last days. As if it is playing in the background as I do things for the last time at school.

But this song doesn’t express the gratitude I have for the amazing people who I worked with all these years.

I have one song, and one song only that I must dedicate to the people I have worked with the past 6 years. It will not be goodbye to most, but I wanted you all to know how much I appreciate you. And all the good times….because I never left work with out a smile on my face. So instead of ending on a sad note….I’m ending with a dance. Because that’s just how we all do things where I work!
