"I Want To Wake Up Every Morning For Work And Be Excited"

The title for this post was pulled from an essay by Katherine Hillier, a senior majoring in journalism at the University of La Verne (in, you guessed it, La Verne, California), and editorial director of The Campus Times, a student newspaper.

While Hillier's essay explored her own difficulties choosing a career, there are nuggets of wisdom therein worthy of contemplation by any lawyer unhappy with his or her career. Consider:

Choosing a career shouldn't be about finding something that makes alot of money or that sounds great on a resume. It's about finding what makes you truly happy even if that means venturing out in different directions.


I want to find something that I will enjoy doing every day. I want to wake up in the morning for work and be excited. I want a happy life and that means I need to follow my bliss....

Isn't this what we all strive for? Isn't this what life is all about? We hope our lawyer readers take Hillier's words to heart and find their own personal "JD Bliss" (pun intended : - ).
