Is the Happy Lawyer a mythical species?

Everywhere I look, I see blog posts, AskMeFi comments, etc., about how you shouldn't go to law school, about the crushing debt that it imposes, stories about how people hate their lives as lawyers, about the masses of layoffs in the industry, or about how the work isn't what, or as interesting as, they expected. Now, my question is -- are there any notable positive
blogs / perspectives out there, written by a lawyer? Comments from MeFi lawyers are definitely welcome.

Bonus points for Canadians, but comments from US lawyers be fantastic too.
* This only tangentially relates to my question, but just in case --I'm a year out of undergrad, with a decent office job -- I am not an investment banker, but I managed to luck my way into a job above the average of my graduating class. And yep, I have wanted to be a lawyer since I was a little one, and yep, it's always been to do do-gooder stuff, not corporate law. And yes, I am not sure what to do next.
