I had never seen my supervisor so emotional than on the day she had to tell us we were no longer going to be a team anymore. That day I had so many emotions, I was silent, I was sad, I was angry and I didn't speak. When the meeting was over I got up and left and didn't speak to anyone as I walked out the door.
The hardest part about saying goodbye was some of my coworkers I wouldn't see again because we lived in different parts of the state. 3 of my coworkers live more than 3 hours from me one way. I haven't heard from those three ladies since we left our agency and that is sad to me. Because I still work in the field I do still see some of my coworkers and we still communicate over social media, text messaging or going out to lunch or dinner together. We are family no matter what so in a way it was only a goodbye to the job but an established relationship with my coworkers was what made saying goodbye that much easier.
When each new class begins while in this Masters program, I always look for familiar names in my classes. This program has given me the opportunity to meet so many wonderful people in the field from different states and countries. I really have enjoyed this program and will hate to see it end. I have 3 classes left after this one. I am hoping to meet some of my colleagues in the near future if the opportunity presents itself. I believe that the hardest part of saying goodbye to the program is not knowing if I will ever see or hear from any of the great people I have met again.
