WTF makes you happy? :|

Your question is legitimate but I'm curious, what do people like you get up in the morning for?

OP here. WELL, lots of things used to make me happy before law school added a tinge of bitterness/stress/mental preoccupation to everything. Not sure how this is really relevant, but three things that make me happy are: (1) tea, (2) exercise, and (3) stuffed animals.

As to the comment above about LRW - yes, LRW - though I hated the *ultra time-sink* portions of the class (i.e. pedantic citation exercises, worthless research treasure hunts, you get the picture), I really enjoyed the memo-writing portions of the class. I probably spent a bit too much time on those memos, actually, because I enjoyed them so much. It probably affected my performance in a substantive class... I'm looking at you, CivPro.
