I think that covers most, if not all, of the jobs I've had. Some were short lived (McDonald's probably being the shortest, and others still have a bit of my soul (BYU). I have been introduced to hundreds of professional scenarios and seen the best and the worst in terms of management, leadership, service, and integrity. I've found that I'm really good at doing a lot of things, and I've become painfully aware of where I fall short. I've met so many people who have made my life better, many of whom I hope to know my whole life. I have developed a confidence that allows me to find some level of success in any assignment..., I should be able to find myself a new place of employment no problem! (right?)

Ah... I remember when we shared a certain boss. Did I ever tell you about the time (after you had moved on) that he called me up personally to see if I could fill in for a day? I couldn't because my schedule didn't quite work. When I called him back and asked if he needed help the following semester he said he wouldn't hire me because I didn't help him that one day. Then I remembered what a tool he was, and was really glad I wasn't going to work for him again. What was I thinking?!
