« Hansi is leaving the building... soon | Main | The New Bloggers! »

Bye bye blog! (or Ann has left the building)

Bye bye blog! (or Ann has left the building)

annisleaving.jpgAnd now my time has come to leave Fabrica forever. It's been one full year of me working on this blog. I won't be here to say happy birthday to the blog on the 4th of October, which was the day I put up the first post. It's a bit sad to be leaving something you work on everyday, but as they say, all good things must come to an end.

Just to be fair, I'm writing my own 'has left the building' bit... using the same question I asked to everybody else:

Ann Poochareon, Interactive department, April 2005-October 2006

What did you do before coming to Fabrica?
I graduated from ITP, NYU, then went to Nice with Mark and Dan to do Nicebots, then came to visit Fabrica and actually didn't like it too much. Then I went back to Brooklyn and worked as a freelancer 20 hours a day from my bedroom, never getting out of my pajamas for days unless to collect a paycheck. Then I thought that maybe living in Italy rent-free might not be so bad.

What's the plan now?
I'm moving to Bangkok, Thailand to take a job offer, and bringing my Canadian boyfriend with me. After 13 years of living in the U.S. and Italy, suddenly there's a calling for me to go back to the motherland.

Your most priceless accomplishment from the experience here
Experiencing Europe first-hand by living here is really priceless. I wouldn't trade it for anything.

Your favorite part about living in Treviso
The Saturday market, especially the during the cherry season. Cheap wine of excellent qualities. Riding bikes without helmets through town and the cars actually stop for you.

Your least favorite part about living in Treviso
The bars, they're not very fun are they?

Any last words for the Fabricanti?
Don't wait for anyone to tell you what to do, don't ask for approval, don't ask for permission, and don't have high expections. Do whatever you want to do and if someone will have a problem with it, then deal with that later (just be smart about it). Most of the time, Fabrica has no idea what it is they want, so if you can take advantage of that, you're golden.


Arrividerci Tutti!

ciao Ann (and Mark!),
it was a pleasure meeting you in Fabrica. Your last word are true words of wisdom. Thanks for that, and for your spirit.
Have a great time in Bangkok.
