Two weeks ago I turned 30.
@amorequietplace Noooo I missed the 12th anniversary of your 18th birthday :(

Also, I quit my job. Not on the exact same day and not without having a plan B (FYI: I’m now working for Shopalike.it – YAY!), but it did nevertheless feel sudden and unsettling.
I live in three different apartments and I quit my job last week. I feel like Dorothy inside the Tornado. — Federico (@amorequietplace) August 5, 2014
Over time the company changed names, faces, direction and pretty much everything you can think of, but I worked there for almost four years (way longer than my longest relationship!) and leaving was bittersweet.
What happened is that I got interviewed, was given the new job, resigned and BAM – two weeks later I was out of the door.
Last day at the office. Totally gonna clean my keyboard so they don’t have enough DNA to clone me.

Since I haven’t had the time to properly mourn, I decided to write this post. It’s about the weirdest stuff I found on my very messy Desktop on my last day at the old job.
It feels like the boring flashback episode of a 90s sit-com, but what can you do about it?
A thoughtful (and creepy) Valentine’s Day Card
The day I considered a career change and researched hairdressers specialized in horses
The day Google fueled my fear of flying
The day I ate chocolate in my sleep
Proof that Andy Fixmer knows about cute dinosaurs
Proof that I’m not OK
The day I linked this video to my co-workers and what the reaction was
Trivia: Marcela is now the CEO of Latin City Pass, a company that gives you cool discounts in El Salvador.
The day Kristin made a shocking confession
The day Google had a heart
The day I unsuccessfully pitched revolutionary interior design ideas to my co-workers
The day someone got my back
The day Simone gave me a present
The day I don’t remember the story behind this but it must be nasty
The day we found out our internal chat system had a drawing function and things went out of hand
Clearly, that was Carine’s touch.
The day I found the personal web page of two dogs named Tiffany D’Ivandry and Cassiopea Heart of Cream
My last day
I don’t wanna make a big deal out of my last meal here.
