初給料! - I got paid!!

ついに新しい会社に入って初めてのお給料を頂きました~ぁ!

何もしないでも会社行かなくてもお金貰えて、貰ったお金で旅行行ったりできた時期が懐かしいけど、試用期間ながら働いてお金をもらうのはやっぱり気分がいい!

それにしても所得税率が違うから、イギリスやカナダで貰ってた以上に貰えてる気がするけど、これは気のせいだね、きっと。しかも日本では医者に見てもらったり入院するのにお金かかるから、そういうのを考えるとやっぱり一長一短。

明日は初任給で家族みんなで寿司を食べるぞ~ぉ!

I got paid by my new employer for the first time!

I do miss the days that I got paid for not doing anything let alone not turning up at work, and that I was able to travel using that money. But it feels good to be paid for the work that I have done!

It makes me feel like I get paid more here in Japan just because income tax rate is different from the ones in the UK and Canada. Having said that, we have to pay for seeing doctor and getting hospitalised here in Japan, so it all kinda balances things out.

I am going to have Sushi with my family to celebrate the first salary payment tomorrow!

Congratulations you turncoat, forget about the past & look forward to a great future. The only good thing about your company is their colour is red & not blue! May you have many more good pay packets... rgds a blue wearing reds supporter
