Hello World!

Today was my high school Mock Trial team’s scrimmage against our cross town rivals. We are getting ready for competition starting reallllyyy soon! 

The court room can be a difficult hearing situation for me. The tricky part is, I never know if I am going to have an easier time or a harder time until I walk into the room. Some judges and attorneys are loud and clear, while some have a quieter, gentler style. It’s funny because while I’d prefer a gentle attorney, my ears prefer the loud attorneys! 

In today’s case, I had almost no trouble at all hearing the judge and the attorneys. I find that the less nervous I am, the better I can focus on listening and hearing well. So, I re-read my witness statement, went over my direct, and hoped for the best and voila! It went well! I performed to the best of my abilities and my team was able to pull through and get a verdict in our favor.

Being in the courtroom again reminded me of why I love mock trial. There’s drama, there’s intrigue, but also, there is logic and reasoning. It is a total adrenaline rush to have to think on your feet and, at the same time, act in a composed and calm manner. Yes, the preparation for a trial can be grueling, but when it comes time for showtime, it is all worth it! 

And besides, there is nothing more fun than being able to rock a really cute professional outfit! 🙂
