Last day at Popstar

Many of you might know that I have been with the same company since I graduated, Popstar Networks. It is a software company that specializes in digital media and interactive kiosks. I helped to implement a number of different initiatives and client projects for the past 5 1/2 years. I started with two others, Steve Hagenlock, CTO and Brian Fusco, VP Product Dev and a handful of graphic design interns and will be leaving just over 30 co-workers. I slowly migrated out of the design production role and as my boss Don Selmon would like to say “moved over to the dark side” in Sales. In 2009 I formed the Sales Solutions Department, where we assisted in all areas of the sales process, including defining client project strategy and coordinating internal departments for implementation. Yesterday, they threw me one hell of a send-off party equipped with the best content I’ve ever seen on digital signage called the “Stanley Send Off”. They made us videos and wrote us good luck messages in the RSS feed. I’ve never been so touched with all the warm wishes and support I received yesterday. It was an incredible scene to see all of the company sitting in the room at once, it is quite the production we’ve built over here and I can’t wait to hear of all their future successes.

I loved the content they made me soo much I was given permission to post on the blog! I have Stacie Doyle, Deena Schaumberg, Erica Birkman and Jen Catloth to thank for all their hard work and making me laugh all day long on my last day. Couldn’t be a better way to go out!

All things Stanley related:

I will post the videos later!

Awesome stuff. We need get some of those JibJab videos posted as well.

INCREDIBLE…. oh how I wish I could have been there to see all this. That looked like the sendoff of the century. Can’t wait to watch the jibjab videos and pee myself.

We’ll miss you Maria! I forgot to give you a copy of your poem – so here you go.

So you think you’re ready to move into your 4 wheel abode?
Maybe you should read this before you hit the road!

I mean really? Driving around in an RV?
Using a 2 X 3 square foot room to pee!

Cooking dinner on a grill every night
Because your home might ignite.

Even though you have been cohabitating all these years,
Living in a 28ft space might just bring you to tears.

Where are you going to put all your shoes?
Nevermind all those bottles of booze!

Arguing over whose turn it is to empty the shitter,
I am sure we’ll all read about it via twitter.

Hanging out with 60 year olds at RV parks,
Who bitch and complain when your dog barks

Think about Buddha and Ernie,
How do they feel about this long journey?

Poor little Buddha rolling around in the back,
And Ernie having an anxiety attack!

So go on, have fun on your “trip”
But don’t come crawling back when you want to jump ship!

You know you will always be welcomed back to our state,
Even though you dropped us all like dead weight.

Be careful, be safe, be reckless, be free
And remember you have no room for going on a shopping spree!
