I have been given several excellent litigation matters and am already very clearly the go to guy. It's clear to me that this job has the potential to be the best one I have ever had.
On top of all that, was able to cash out a bunch of leave I was never go to use but was going to lose on the transfer. It worked out to a little over a month's pay - damn nice Christmas bonus.
Life is good right now. I know it will change and work is called work for a reason, but, damn, it is nice to feel like you came out on top for a bit.
Thanks for all the well wishes guys. I truly wish the best for each and every one of you.
So hard work, devotion to your work, and intelligent choices do work...
I am soooo screwed.
