Going, Going, Back, Back

During the past few months overseas, I've seen a lot of IP conferences and events that I wish I could have attended. I've also found several companies that seem like ideal places to work. And they are almost uniformly in the same place, in the Yay. It seems like the best place to be for what I want to do. And Bar Exam registration is right around the corner; decisions need to be made.

So, I guess, in the words of the Notorious B.I.G., "I'm going, going, back, back to Cali, Cali."  Hopefully, the similarities between our journeys will end with that.

I'm a little nervous, the weather in the Bay isn't exactly my favorite. And as anyone who was reading this during the summer knows, I have some issues with yuppies. The bowling's expensive; the food's expensive; the housing's expensive. But, there are plenty of good things, too. The public transport is great. I have family out there, and a bunch of friends, too. Ok, I borrowed most of the friends from Mr. Trizzle. But they're good people, and he doesn't seem to mind sharing (usually). Oh, and the music scene is a nice piece. Where else could I stand 5 feet away from Angelique Kidjo!  Besides, it's just a starting point; I can always move. Maybe even go back, back to Mil-town. ;)

yeaaaaah (3)

Well, that would beat trying to start up a business - or take over your father's - in Milwaukee....guess we won't have to evict Dan ;)

Come back to California...we need more smart, nice people!
As for the weather...yeah, it does get sort of cold and damp in the Bay, but if you do want is just a few hours away. And you don't have to deal with it for 6 months.
I think Berkeley might not have so many yuppies. Just old hippies. Actually now, all the yuppies probably lost all their $$ in the stock market crash.

I tried asking Daddy about that. He laughed at me. So fine. I'll go. When he's ready to retire, he can call me. Maybe I'll be ready to come back.
MR: Thanks for the encouragement :) I actually don't mind snow. It's the temperatures where it's too warm for snow but too cold for swimming that I don't like.
