As I sit here at work waiting for the moment we "change" (I'm sure I'd be breaking some rule telling you any more before Monday) at 1pm I kind of ponder to myself about the changes I've seen since I started.
I've worked at the same place for two and half years, it's now the longest period of time I've stayed working for one company. Every member of my department at the time I joined has left. In fact since then I've seen 25 people, friends, come and go in a team that's gone from 5 people to 13. And that's just my team, if I expand it across the company it's going to be at least 50 people who've come and gone. I'm now the 8th longest serving member of the company (and I'll be 7th after next week).
It's quite depressing that this place constantly changes... I just read an email from May about a trip to the park that was being arranged for the bank holiday and pretty much everyone it was CC'd to has gone, and I can remember how different this place was even then. Sometimes I remember people and I think "Were they really here just a couple of months ago?" because time just seems completely distorted in this place. Sometimes it feels like I've only just started here, and other times it feels like I've been here forever.
So to all those old folks from my company who sometimes drop by here to check up on me make sure you check out the website on Monday! You'll be very surprised!
