... oh god I haven't posted in forever. Have been literally eaten by life: on the highly dubious upside I finally got the Millefiore/Spanner case I always wanted, in early August -

And it has, true to form, kept me chained and handcuffed in the basement for the past two and a half months. And looks set to keep me there for more! I took 70 megabytes of documents home to work with over the weekend, am trying very hard not to think about them now (and obviously, failing equally hard). (Had to turn down morning with adorable dogs today because I am genuinely exhausted and need to conserve energy T___T)

That said! tinted_glass linked this hilarious It's Always Sunny video, and it made me laugh so hard because it contains a great deal of hysteria about not reading contracts before you sign them. *still laughing*

you are deeppink

Your dominant hues are red and magenta. You love doing your own thing and going on your own adventures, but there are close friends you know you just can't leave behind. You can influence others on days when you're patient, but most times you just want to go out, have fun, and do your own thing.

Your saturation level is high - you get into life and have a strong personality. Everyone you meet will either love you or hate you - either way, your goal is to get them to change the world with you. You are very hard working and don't have much patience for people without your initiative.

Your outlook on life is very bright. You are sunny and optimistic about life and others find it very encouraging, but remember to tone it down if you sense irritation.

mangy_mongrel is travelling Europe and is very sweet and sending postcards from all over (much love!) ♥ - also this is probably a measure of how used my family is to me; my Dad was going through the mail, found a postcard from Italy addressed to 'Gokudera Hayato', and without blinking passed it to me with an unconcerned, "This is yours".

maiki! The Rolo doujinshi arrived! ♥ IT MADE ME SO SO SO HAPPY. ♥ Thank you for the gorgeous and lovely Rolo stickers! They are making me smile in a most disturbing manner! ♥ It is so clear which your art is (I want to take your Rolo home and love him forever)! milk_of_lime's artwork is also incredibly distinctive and also makes me smile like anything. Thank you so much for putting the book together, every single page and word and line of it is made of pure love. ♥

Had an immensely fun time yesterday with hemera_oneiroi (BEST SHIFU EVER), julineci (♥!!!), snowykiss (thank you so much for everything, and I really hope your feet feel better~), kateriya (pretty lady! ♥ *is shot*), chiiyo (omg why are you so cute when you look so sad), haruko_o (AMAZING PHOTOGRAPHER), and aslah (THANK YOU SO MUCH for MAGICALLY FINDING THE book! ♥)

Amazing Things of Note
☆ TALES OF THE ABYSS ANIME: I really need to make a separate post for this BUT WHERE IS THE TIME? D: Suffice to say it is amazing and lovely and is gradually giving me the culmulative WANT to replay the game (oh god no, I gave up 100 hours of my life to this game and I don't want it back; but I ALSO do not wish to give up any more)
☆ TALES OF THE ABYSS MANGA VOLUME 5: why so cute and so excruciatingly adorable GUY/LUKE LOVE UP 100%.
☆ DARREN SHAN MANGA: FINALLY! FINALLY! ADULT!STEVE AND DARREN MEET AGAIN in the September '08 release of Darren Shan! ♥ I have only been waiting since December 2006 for this (... wow. In comparison I have only been waiting for Gokudera and Tsuna to reunite since February this year). Adult!Steve looks AMAZING. ♥

I'm currently trying to get out of the firm-rat-race. I don't think working in a firm is right for me. I've been in a firm since articling, but I really don't find the work enjoyable....I feel like I'm teaching other people technical ways to scam the system or something..... Right now, I'm applying to change jobs--to a more research-oriented role. I don't think I want to be the front-line lawyer like my parents imagined me to be.

That aside, 70MB of documents....All I can say is cursed e-discovery!!! I know how you feel *hugs*

I'm really happy over the ToA anime too ^^ It's like a double dose of our favourite chi-chan every week ^^ Lantis will be putting out ToA Sound Episodes (priced at Y3000) to be released in late November. If I am not broke from buying other CDs then, I'd be sure to put in my order ^^ I wonder if there will be character songs......

I send you my best wishes for the finding-the-right-role in the legal profession: it never is easy, and I really don't think we should confine ourselves to the whole image of frontline lawyer, no matter what the people we know think. THESE ARE OUR LIVES, not theirs. And I think it's up to us to find the best fit possible for us: and the people around us should really just respect that.

I feel like I'm teaching other people technical ways to scam the system or somethingI have a friend with the same reservations about a career in frontline lawyering. Her words (because she's a corporate lawyer), was that she thought that at times, all her job was about was helping rich people get richer.

Come talk/vent to me anytime? I might not be able to help much, but I am always here to listen. *hugs tight!* If only we were in the same country: it would be so wonderful to meet for coffee and just talk about - law and Abyss. XDXDXD

XDDDDD!!! I wish it was e-discovery! ;) This is just preparing documents for a witness statement! *grin* IF IT COMES TO E-DISCOVERY I WILL DIE AND DIE AND DIE AGAIN. ;)

! That would be fascinating! If you do buy them, let us know what you think :))))))

I totally understand how your friend feels. I had the exact same feeling in the corporate tax rotation during articles. I felt like I should donate to the government to make up for all the "advice" I gave... That's why I decided I don't want to practice in the tax division.

However, no matter which division I go, I still feel uncomfortable in the firm setting. I'm happiest when I'm preparing local presentations or writing short consultation advice letters. That's why I'm applying to be a research lawyer in one of those legal research database companies. *sigh* I hope I get accepted. I don't think I can keep up the firm life much longer.

Though we aren't in the same jurisdiction, we are both mulling along a similar common law system ^^ We also got called in the same year so we can share our joys and woes while attempting to crawl along the legal career path ^^

*pats*Witness statements...urgh...I remember those. If only witnesses remember what they said in your office while under oath in court! Prepping those statements is a total pain! *hugs* I'll be here to pass the cookies, coffee, chocolate to cheer you on. Of course, I'll also rotate the songs on my Chi-chan music play-list to keep your spirits up!

I recently bought 3 of his CDs ^^;; They are all old though (Hitsuji de Oyasumi 4, Tokimemo GS2 CD Drama 1, Angel's Feather Drama 4). I've been planning to buy those since last year (except the AF one, which I have failed to import since it came out...urgh!). Since I was moving around during articles, I couldn't get the CDs delivered to a permanent address. Now that I'm somewhat settled, I absolutely had to buy them! The next set of CDs I'm looking to get include Rossellini 2, Tales of the Abyss SE 1 (depending on the content ^^::) and No-ton to Oyasumi. ~sigh~ it's such a silly fangirl dream to have Chi-chan count sheep for you until you fall into a deep slumber ^^ All right, I'll just admit that Chi-chan is my little source of happiness that keeps me pumped up every day ^^
