First of all, I'm still going to be a lawyer. I just got an opportunity to practice a different kind of law and learn a different set of skills. That's not to say it was an easy decision. To be super eloquent, it sucked hardcore trying to decide between the two jobs, but I ultimately think the new position will make me more marketable and will allow me to have a more well-rounded (the professional euphemism for "happy") life.
Everyone who listened to my near-constant wishy-washying, muchas gracias.
Regarding how this will impact my blog (duh, that's what's really important) is that I will talk even less about the new job than I did about the old one. This is not too bueno since I got a decent amount of material out of my lawyerin adventures. Guess I'll just have to work on being interesting in other areas of life.
The minor plus side is that I will probably get around to telling my Big Law horror stories. (Yes, my current job is mostly great, but it's still a law firm. Of course some bad-- and more importantly, funny -- shit went down.)
