Weekly review: Week ending February 17, 2012

What a week! Yesterday, I helped Regan work on one of the projects I’ve turned over to her. I also cleared out my locker, put the finishing touches on internal resources, sent a whole lot of individual thank-yous and goodbyes, and gave my laptop, badge, lock, and American Express card back to my manager. Tada!

Now on to my next experiment!
