fact: it is really hard to leave friends and comrades
Friends, union sisters and brothers, the activist network. Saying goodbye.
Leaving this place, Mississauga, is easy and exciting. Leaving a job that I love is a bit sad, but my new position awaits, and sounds like an upgrade. Leaving the Mississauga Library System, hurrah. On to a new and (probably) better system.
Leaving friends... really hard. So hard that I wonder why I'm doing this, even though I know the answers.
There's nothing for it, really. Sure, there is Facebook and various technologies to keep in touch. There are future vacations when we might make a reason to see each other. And new connections and communities await. Yep, I know all that. Not asking for advice here. Just stating a fact: leaving people you love sucks.
