All good things must come to an end. Because if they didn't, we'd never move on to other things, right? I mean, I can't write about Ryan Gosling forever, can I? (Ummm... can I?) So, I'm leaving my Scanner things in the very capable hands of Brian, Drew and Jim, putting on my big-girl panties and heading out to see what other things this crazy world has to offer.
I had no idea what the hell I was doing when I took this job nearly two years ago and some might argue that remained the same even into this last week. I've certainly made my fair share of mistakes—in typing and in judgment—and probably even offended some of you. Hopefully, though, I managed to make you laugh at least once or twice. In return, you supported me when I packed my over-priced bags and moved to Kansas City. And when I went away for six weeks to work at a summer camp and caught The Herp from a nine-year-old girl, you welcomed me back with open arms.
But this time I'm going for good. (And just when my dad was finally starting to get comfortable with my "profession," too. Damn.)
Now, for my final act of shameless self promotion...
If you feel like keeping up with me, I'll be contributing sporadically to Flavorwire and I'll eventually start writing again on my personal blog, eefers. You can find my food-related ramblings at slashfood.com and casserolecrazy.com. And if you really, really want to support me, you could always buy my book. Oh, and I'm running a half marathon in New Orleans in February for the The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (and to counteract all of those double cheeseburgers I've been eating these last two years) and would love it if you could sponsor me, even if it's just $5.
I'll also be editing the lifestyle section of a soon-to-launch online publication in Kansas City where, among my many duties, I'll be writing a hopefully-hilarious advice column. It will be a real job, in a real office, where I'll wear real pants and have a real excuse to take a shower before 4 p.m.
Because this is a cause for celebration, and not tears, I will leave you with one of my favorite videos. This is exactly how I'd like you to remember me, because this is what I imagine blogger heaven (you know, life after blogging) is like:
