Lawyers just wanna have fu-hun

Despite the fact that I am the #8 result if you search "I hate being a lawyer" on Yahoo, I do not hate it. In fact, the past two weeks at work have been amazing. Busy and crazy, yes. But awesome, too. I've been doing work that I enjoy tremendously, and I've gotten a lot of kudos from my coworkers. (Yes, I feed off the praise of others. I'm an only child, what do you expect?) Can't give any particular details, but I'll just tell you that I was doing the Happy Dance in my office today.

Lawyerin': It don't suck so much.

On the plus side, if you Google "I hate being a lawyer", you don't even come up on the first page. Yeah, I tried.

I am envious of your week. Congrats.

Yay for you! And thanks for posting about it yesterday when my husband was having a 'why did I ever become a lawyer?' moment...It was a timely reminder that it's not all bad. :)

You're like 1 in 10, I swear. I wonder if I come up on "I hated being a lawyer." Probably not, since I hated it so much I don't even blog about it!

I'm glad you're enjoying it. My husband is one of those who mostly loves it, too.

Isn't it wonderful to have that good feeling about your job? I know what you mean about feeding off the praise of others (I am an only child too).

Did you see you-know-who this weekend? She was in the old stomping grounds.

I need to learn the happy dance. Maybe if I do it at work, it'll bring me good luck. :)

I've been having a crappy week at work, so I'm taking extra vicarious pleasure in reading about your great week. May there be more happy dances in your future!

And just as an aside, how weird is this? I haven't heard this actual song in years and yesterday it was playing on the radio when I turned it on...when I already had it in my head 'cause of your post.

Do you think the programming director at RQX reads your blog?

Hurray for APL! I know how rare compliments and kudos are in this big-law world, so congratulations!

I walked around in a happy daze for a week after receiving a heartfelt compliment. I'm glad things are going well for you at work!!!
