Today was my last day of work with literally the best coworkers and boss I️ couldn’t have even asked for. Much of my Aggie identity wasn’t shaped by my time in a classroom like most students, instead it was in the passenger seat of a suburban where I learned a lot of life lessons in my 4 years with this wonderful group of people. This job was always more than a student worker position, it shaped what I wanted to do with my life much more than any exam ever did. I learned what kind of coworker and boss I wanted to be one day. I learned that a boss can be so much more than just a boss. I learned that events are some of the most tiring yet exciting things to be a apart of. I learned that no one grows up wanting to be in the parking world but that it puts a hook in you and you’re just kinda caught. It was just Transportation Services to other students, but to me it was a home with a group of friends that was there for me in some of the hardest times of my life. It was a group of adults that had never encountered someone like me, but took this 20 something year old trans kid trying to find his way in the world and gave me a safe place and a support system that I’d never had before. I love this group much more than just as coworkers, they were my home away from home for 4 years and i could never thank them enough for all they have done for me over the years. This isn’t a goodbye, just a see you later, but it doesn’t make it any easier.
