In the end, I never did drink. And I never did take that bus! Or pick those avocados! But I grew as a person and learned a lot about myself -- my strengths and weaknesses as a person and as an employee.
And I laughed a lot. And, yes, I even cried a little. In short, I lived.
I strapped myself in for the ride and when it ended I was a little bit exhausted, but it was that satisfying, I've accomplished something kind of exhaustion. It was a great experience and I'm proud of the work I did while I was with Jeff Lewis and Co. I cherished the opportunity and have absolutely no regrets -- I started with a smile and ended with a smile. The rush was totally worth it!
To everyone who has shared this journey with me: Thanks for your kindness, support, and encouragement! It's been a real pleasure.
And lastly, to Jeff, Jenni, Chris, Ryan, Zoila, Oliver, Casey, Little Chris, Stuey, and Monkey, please remember:
I appreciate you.
Always love, Chris K.
