So long, Farewell, Auf Wiedersehen, Goodbye <3


My fellow Mehricans,

Today will be my last day at Mediocre Labs. I’ve had an awesome, incredibly fun time working here. I'll miss seeing my coworkers everyday. I'll miss not knowing what kind of crazy nonsense I'll encounter on any given day or what fun, creative project I'll get to work on next. And of course I’ll miss this crazy family we call our community.

This was the most fun job I've ever had and all of you were a huge part of that. I’m so incredibly proud of the community that we’ve built together. I’m beyond happy that our forums are a place where people feel comfortable sharing the announcement of their babies, weddings, and everything good and bad in between. You’re a smart, thoughtful, caring, kind, snarky, funny, creative, supportive, helpful, amazing group of weirdos and I love you all. It was truly a pleasure to be a part of the community and I want to thank you all from the bottom of my heart.

I’ll still be around and posting, so feel free to @ tag me! I’m still going to need vacuums, knives, mugs, and speaker docks so this won’t be the last you see of me.

So why am I leaving? I'm moving on to an extremely boring and generic-sounding company that turns out is really cool to work for. I'll be their Social Media Community Manager and I'll be working from the ground up to build a community for customers they’ve never really connected with before. It's going to be challenging and exciting, but certainly not more fun.

I know I’m leaving the community in great hands, between @dave, @hollboll, @MEHcus, @galmaegi and all of our forum regulars I know you’ll continue to be the amazing community you are.

Thank you all for everything you've done for me during my time here, I had an absolutely blast!

“Goodbyes are not forever. Goodbyes are not the end. They simply mean I'll miss you until we meet again.”

P.S. We’ll finally be doing our Saison Battle taste test Periscope later today and we’ll also consider a farewell toast, so join us and raise a glass!
