As of January 18, I will be a free and unemployed woman. Please enjoy this small tribute to my past two years of employment at the good old U of C at B.

(To the tune of “Leaving’s not leaving,” by Leann Rimes, a song I have never actually heard):

Sometimes the time comes along

When it’s time

Time to move on

Wasn’t all bad

We watched Peterson burn

Bureaucratic delays ain’t all that I learned

Leaving’s not leaving

‘Cause I’m not leaving you behind

You’ll always be Berkeley

And you’re not hard to find

A massive Goliath

Stolen two good years of my time

Taken my eyesight

I can’t run off when I’m blind

There was debt and despair

And coworkers who don’t really care

Let’s not go there

When Chinese myths are gone

My cowboy boss through

Despair lingers on

Leaving’s not leaving

‘Cause I’m not leaving you behind

I’ve left a paper trail

(A paper trail)

I know the feds will find

Wherever I’m goin’

I’ll be dragged back and fined

Leaving’s not leaving

When it’s fraud that you’ve co-signed.

I’ll hold on to the memory

Of the days when I was so carefree

A filing clerk downstairs

Now I just wish I could be there

Leaving’s not leaving

‘Cause I’m not leaving you behind

I might never be free

(might never be free)

I might have to serve time

Wherever I’m goin’

You ain’t no good friend of mine

Leaving’s not leaving

When I’ve left my youth behind

Leaving’s not leaving

When I’ve left my youth behind
