I am alive. Barely.
No, just kidding. I'm alive and kicking, getting ready for my little mock bench trial tonight and all that goes with it. I ended up being called yesterday afternoon by one of the teams who went last night saying they lost their main witness and needed someone ASAP who knew the case, so I flew downtown after school and spent yesterday evening witnessing for them. I thought it was going to be a big time-waster, but I'm glad I did it because I got to see how they handled stuff and what objections came up and stuff, and I think it set my mind at ease a bit. Sometimes when the team you're going against is super-competitive it's hard to remember that it's OK for you to have your own style and do your own thing. Pass/Fail people, Pass/Fail.
In the upcoming days I have things to do, meetings, plans, etc., literally from sunup to sundown, so I have no idea what or when I will be posting. But I'll be around and maybe something funny will happen to lighten this place up a bit from my recent depressing ramblings. Shit has been kind of tough lately and it's shining through, I know...I promise I'm trying to get through everything and be a little less maudlin, we'll just have to see.
