I liked taking care of little things, like design my own marquees, decorate the walls with origami, advertise our twitter account with blue-bird signs. I liked setting things up and saying, “I made that.” My coworkers would often tell people I was in charge of all the signs that go around the place. It made a difference because we’d look at the machines everyday; you’ll be surprised at how putting a little color and effort can go a long way. Thanks for the Question!
This entry has been posted as of 11 AM Saturday, November 16, 2013. Out of the wishes of my employer, I chose not to display this publicly until after closing. You may get upset as you are just now finding out this information, but please understand that my boss asked to make no public announcement. Consider this my “goodbye” to the business.
I was hoping to have more time to write about this, but the deadline arrived earlier than expected. Let’s face it, we were all hoping for some miracle to postpone such an event until the end of this year, but for what it’s worth it’s a little too late to be saying sorry altogether. In any case …
I’ve accepted the inevitable, many months ago and I knew we wouldn’t survive long after the summer. … There are MANY who have (indirectly) shared their gripes about our place and make it that much harder to stay in good spirits about closing shop. There are only a handful of people who have showed a level of respect with me that I could reciprocate.
… I view closing as an opportunity to share my feelings and mature from this experience. For those of us who feel so strongly about it, I’m done trying to convince everyone that this place is worth something, because it’s over now. With that said: Sayonara, Japan.
