Last week I sat down to write a post, and in the midst of it I got so emotional I had to stop. I tend to get overly attached to places and people, and as I've said before.. goodbyes aren't easy for me.

It was a blogpost about my last day of working at the Pharmacy that I've worked at for the past two years. The place where I spent countless hours falling in love with the profession of Pharmacy. The place that not only confirmed my love for pharmacy, but taught me how rewarding the profession can be.

There's something to be said for a small town, family-owned pharmacy. From the employees, down to the patients, it's a different atmosphere than your big retail chains. To say I was blessed with the opportunity to work there would be an understatement. I'll miss the abundance of laughs we shared at work, all of our quirky patients who made work so much more enjoyable, and just the people in general. I'll miss the people.

I can't even put into words how much all of the people at work have meant to me. The friendships I built with each of my coworkers, and the time we spent together is something I'm so grateful for. I have learned a tremendous amount about patient care, and how to handle situations that I never knew I could potentially encounter just from watching the pharmacists I work with. I feel more ready than ever to take on Pharmacy school and eventually join them in the profession.

Now bring it Pharm school!! ;)

That pharmacy is absolutely precious! Love that places like that still exist! How lucky you were to work in such a great atmosphere- I know you'll find something even greater in the future!

Yay! I know that they were super sad to lose you too! Is that a possibility of a work place after Pharmacy school?

I get attached like that too. Those people become so important so quickly! Where would we be without those people who invested in us early on??
