My last day at work.

All of this week, the gradual emptying of the office has been very tangible. Nothing is left of the buzz we used to have. The Monday morning company breakfasts, when we barely fit around the giant dining tables, and the shared lunches, and the general atmosphere of togetherness.

Today, for the first time in many months, I arrived to find the office locked, dark and empty, because all the early risers have already quit or been let go. It wasn’t quite that empty during the day, but when I went home – for the last time – in the afternoon, it didn’t feel like leaving the company I used to work for, because the company now barely exists.
