Hey everyone ! 🙂
I just wanted to jump on and let you all know that my Contract with giffgaff comes to an end today - so this will be my last day on the forum, as a giffstaffer 🙁
I wanted to send a personal goodbye to you all here - to say what a pleasure it has been getting to know every member I’ve had the pleasure to speak to; getting to join the giffgaff community and be reminded of the importance of real people, making real connections, and supporting one another. You’ve helped to reinforce exactly why I love the Communications industry, so thank you all for that 😀.
This has definitely been the most unpredictable last couple of weeks of my time with any company (I’m talking COVID-19 takeover, 100 video calls as I’ve been working … and doing just about everything else … from home; and navigating the endless media updates during this outbreak). But it’s certainly a time I’ll never forget either. Your community spirit, and how you’ve all rallied around to help one another is another testament to how great this community really is.
But for me, now?
Now’s for a bit of ‘time for self’ over the next month or so. Self development, relaxing/resetting, lots of time spent with my family, including turning 27 in quarantine (that’s going to be interesting!) And then, it’ll be back out into the working world for me, taking on my next Contract.
I’ll still be around on the forum here and there - as a regular smegular member of the public. So I won’t disappear completely 🙂 but I wanted to make sure I left an official farewell - as an end to this chapter.
Thanks for being so welcoming, receptive, open! For all the friendly messages, support and suggestions. And for all the friendly faces I got to see on the day of the 10th birthday party at giffgaff HQ too (even though I was running around like a headless chicken all day, keeping the day going smoothly. I’d have loved to have spent more time in 1 on 1 conversations with you all).
But it’s been a lovely experience all round, you really are a great bunch. And I wish everyone I’ve been able to share conversations with, all the happiness, health and success in the world!
Take care, during these crazy times. And again - stay positive and stay safe. We’ll get through it 😃
@shaina_k will be taking over all of my posts/activity on the forum, so if there’s anything you wanted to @ message me about, regarding anything I’ve posted recently - she is your girl 😀
For now though - All the best xD
And remember, especially in this crazy time - stay positive and stay safe.
