This 'Being a Lawyer' Thing

Are you counsel at a legal aid office? Or maybe you're an assistant district attorney? Practicing lawyers in general, but especially
those outside of biglaw practice, I'd like for you to tell me about your career, or your day-to-day, etc.

The reason I ask: I am a 1L (up in Canada, but it's not so different. Main difference is that there is a stronger job market up here for lawyers compared to the US.) I am arriving at law school with a few years of a "high-powered workplace" under my belt, and I'm trying to get a better handle on my career direction. For me, the more I think about it, and think back to what I liked and didn't like about that experience, the less and less I want to work in biglaw. Yep, I'm talking to my career office, doing informational interviews, and the like, but I'm hoping to hear from MeFiers.
