So, I'm partially posting in this thread just because I enjoy reading it and don't usually have anything that would make me "happy" enough to warrant posting, and partially because I know a few lawyers post in and read the thread, so I thought I would solicit their collective well wishes.
I think (hopefully) I'm about to win my first real case. Well, it's not really mine, but still, I'm doing all the work. Just the prospect of winning is making me feel happier than I have in quite some time. That, and the thought of opposing counsel losing. Like, me watching the look on their faces when they lose, expecting to win...I see now how this could become addictive.
