Peace out, Bellevue

Standard

Today is my last day at my crazy job. I’m taking the rest of the week off before starting my new job on Monday. I’m spending the bulk of that time down in Oregon visiting family, which will be fun. On my lunch hour, I decided to take a couple of pictures of the few things I will miss about working in Bellevue. Aside from the countless lunch and shopping options, Bellevue actually has a surprisingly large collection of public art. My very favorite piece resides outside the Bellevue Art Museum – the Giant Purse sculpture:

My next favorite piece is right next to the transit center where I catch the bus. It’s probably the only bright spot of my morning as I groggily walk to work at 0-dark-thirty. There’s just something about eggs on stilts that amuses me. Plus they look like War of the Worlds, which is cool:

On the whole Bellevue isn’t a bad place, but I am so not going to miss the sucky commute or the deeply unsatisfying job. I’m very much looking forward to my new job in Seattle. In the meantime, I have a 3+ hour road trip to think up new blog topics, so be afraid! 😉
