I have returned.

My first blogpost in almost 2 years. There's a certain sense of familiarity, but at the same time, some hesitation. Not only have I not been posting on my blog the last two years, but I also have not been reading other people's blogs.


Well, mostly, it's because I spent most of 2007 working in incredibly taxing jobs. Long hours, sleepless nights; and stressful weekends.

The other reason is frankly, I'd rather spend the time with J, than blogging.

Why start again now?

Well, I think it's time for me to start writing again. Writing, for me, has always been a sort of release point for me (the other release for me has traditionally been playing video games, and since I've started to become bored at playing video games... writing is what's left). Now, I've got a new job which allows me more time to do interesting things.... like blogging.

What am I going to blog about?

I have no idea...

Greetings from Japan!

J and I just got here last night. We walked around Shinjuku in Tokyo but we were so exhausted from the plane flight and jet lag that we really couldn't appreciate it. I am so excited about the next two weeks!

I'm a Ferrari 360 Modena!

You've got it all. Power, passion, precision, and style. You're sensuous, exotic, and temperamental. Sure, you're expensive and high-maintenance, but you're worth it.

So, I got a job offer... to be a tax accountant at a CPA firm at a lower salary than what I would have expected to make coming out of law school. I've been having sleepless nights because I'm not sure what to do. Should I wait to see if I can get something better or take the offer? Should I wait for my bar results to see if I can obtain a job in the legal field? Would a legal job be better than a tax accounting job? Should I do SEC Reporting? I've prayed about it and J has prayed for me about it. I'm so not sure what to do.

Tax Accounting
-Pros: Get lots of challenging assignments. I know one person at the CPA firm who is fairly high up and can help me get the best assignments to work on. The job would let me use some of the tax law knowledge I've gained. The offer is in hand. The partners and people seem to be nice. Possibility to do tax law after working in the tax accounting field. Higher potential.
-Cons: Get less pay than I would have expected coming out of law school. The job title ("Staff Accountant") stinks.

SEC Reporting
-Pros: Better title. No offer yet but I could get one, I believe, somewhat easily. Pays quite a lot better.
-Cons: I wouldn't be using my legal skills at all in the field. Lower potential.

-Pros: I get to use my legal knowledge. Probably better pay (but not certain).
-Cons: I may hate the practice of law, like many others. It's unsure at this time whether I will like it or not. The legal job market for new grads isn't so hot.

Gosh, what should I do?
