New Beginnings.

Bit o' news.

After five years at my firm, I have landed a new job.

A fancy new job, at a well-respected law firm. A law firm that has Barcelona chairs and orchids in the lobby.

Now I will be able to say the Firm's name when people ask me where I work and people will say, "Ohhhhh nice!" instead of "Where's that?"

I'll be doing some really interesting work, with some really, really great lawyers.

I'm excited, but surprised at how sad I'll be to leave the place I am now. Not sad enough to say no to this opportunity - because I'd be an IDIOT to pass up this fantastic opportunity that landed in my lap, care of a friend, but this really feels like breaking up with someone.

It's torn me apart for the last few days while I made the decision, accepted, and told my boss. I haven't eaten, I haven't slept, and I've been on the verge of tears while at work. Except, I think that's over now, and I think I'm moving towards joy at the possibilities this brings.

I can't explain why I was so miserable at the job, because I certainly liked the people I work with -- I'm so sad that I won't be seeing them every day, anymore. But I'm excited to go to a fresh place, with new people, and have my abilities wow people again, instead of it just being taken for granted that I'm going to perform a miracle.

What a great 30th birthday present. I start two days before. :)
