Last sunny day on Ravenswood.
Last day of work.
Such a bitter sweet feeling.
The count down has begun, 10 days till Japan!
I have to say, I won't miss the lame parking spots on Ravenswood....people would take up two or three parking spots because there are no parking lines.
The parking in Cleveland - aka three blocks away from the studio.
The 1-130 hour commute on the Kennedy.
Merging four lanes on the Kennedy for the Irving Park off ramp.
The cold or super hot toilet seat - we had no ac or heat in the bathroom.
People parking in the loading dock.
The freight elevator light not working, especially at night.
The theater companies giving out the building code.
And most of all sharing a bathroom with five guys ;)
I will miss the friendships.
IMacs, Mac Book Pros, Photoshop, Lightroom and Photo Mechanic.
Transmit, PhotoShelter and everything else I couldn't figure out.
The networking opportunities.
The yuka fritters.
The four flights of stairs.
The awesome freight elevator.
The late nights.
The equipment I couldn't lift.
The early mornings.
The sweet photo shoots.
The equipment I could borrow.
My Pandora stations, aka sleep stations.
Om on the Range.
Chicago Symphony Orchestra.
All the lenses one can dream of.
The beauty dish.
The rainbow of paper.
The veggie burgers.
And everyone who made my experience at toddrphoto memorable.
To Todd, who gave me the opportunity to pursue my dreams.
To Cheryl, who gave me confidence.
To Rue, who always made me feel beautiful.
To Gina, who always gave me good energy.
To Victor, for always making sure our package came on time. Gotta love UPS Ground!
To Cami, for always being so great and such a great listener - hope to see you in Japan, girlie!
To Ben, for teaching me how to be positive and having an opinion at the same time.
And to all the clients and friends that I made in this two year journey - hope to see you all in the summer of 2012!
Bye bye for now Ravenswood.
What a bitter sweet day.
"All of life is a journey which paths we take,
what we look back on,
and what we look forward to is up to us.
We determine our destination,
what kind of road we will take to get there,
and how happy we are when we get there.”
