Friday was my last day at work! I thought about quitting for some time after I had Sienna. I felt like I was missing out on so many milestones and precious moments. Then, K ended up with a good job opportunity overseas which opened up the possibility of me taking some time off. Previously, I refused to quit my job and move overseas because I had invested so much – financially, and 3 years of my life going to law school and taking the bar exam. But now, 7 years out of law school, I feel that I have somewhat of a good base with 3 years in private practice at a big NYC law firm and 4 years in the federal government. Hopefully I will be able to return to work someday.
I thought I would feel a little sad leaving, but I don’t feel a bit sad!! I couldn’t wait to get out of there! I am looking forward to the next chapter in my life in Japan!! More importantly I am looking forward to hanging out with this lil cutie pie every day!!
