What a crazy week it is. Between homework, mock
trial and my other responsibilities, I have been quite busy. Mock Trial is a
lot right now because we have an invitational this weekend at U of R and then
our regional competition at UB next weekend. It was weird because the other day
someone was like "competition? for mock trial?" That really threw me
off because I never realized how many people don't understand what it is.
Basically we get a case at the beginning of the school year and have to prepare
a prosecuting and defense side as attorneys and witnesses. We go to competition
in February in which our prosecution plays their defense in front of a judge
and vice versa. There is a whole point system, awards, winners, and everything.
It is actually a really fun time if you are looking to be a lawyer, actor, or
even just interested in it. So anyways, I have a lot of memorizing to do
because I am doing the opening for the defense team as well as a direct and
cross plus I am also a witness for the prosecution so that's even more to
memorize. But really it is a lot of fun!
I can't believe we are already in February. I
was looking at one of my syllabi and saw that I have a midterm in like three
weeks! That's going to come so quickly. After that, the weeks are going to fly
even faster and before we know it, it will be summer. I am trying not to rush
it though because as everyone keeps telling me, I will probably miss college
once I leave it, just like high school. So I hope to enjoy my years here. Well
I hope everyone has an amazing week. I will let you know next week how we do in
the invitational at U of R.
Until next time....
