This view. 🙂 The adrenaline and excitement. Some nerves. Some tiredness in the middle, but so awake. The snacks! The professionalism. The friendliness. The community. The industry. The awe from the witness — he didn’t notice I was typing on the stenograph under the table and thought I was just using a recorder and monitoring the proceedings . 😄 Until near the end at a break when he pointed out, “How things have changed now…” and I informed him, “No, I’m typing with a stenograph under the table!” 😄 He joked and called me sly. Hahaha.
Then we launched into a mini-discussion about how technology might one day overtake stenographers and if I was worried about losing my job. Nope, not worried. Neither were the two counsel members. One of them knows about stenomasks too!
I’m so comfortable with interrupting them now. Say yes or no instead of nodding. 🙂
