Twenty years today  
I made it! On the 30th November 1992 I walked into a St.George Bank branch as a staff member for the very first time. It's been an interesting journey, from then to now; I've seen it grow from a small-to-middling building society, to the country's fifth biggest bank, then onto its absorption by Westpac. I've had numerous managers over that time - and I'm still standing. Not *quite* sure how! I've met a lot of awesome people over that time, and made some steadfast friends.
And my personal journey has been pretty amazing, too, from a casual teller, to 2IC of a large branch, and ultimately to lender.
I can't help but wonder what the next 20 years will hold.

Thank you so much. Sitting here now, pondering the changes I've seen, and thinking I probably won't last there another five, let alone twenty years. But time has a habit of flowing onwards while we're distracted by the little things, so it could get away on me again.

Congratulations!

I hope a lot of the next 20 year years involves a lot of time doing the things you love. ♥

Thank you! I'm lucky insofar as while I really don't like the pressure, I do enjoy what I do on a daily basis. A lot of people don't even have that much.
