All rise

Hello everyone, I am still enjoying my vacation from school. Today, finally, was a little bump into reality where I got to be a grownup and go to my first ever jury duty. After waking up early they called me to a panel by 11am. Afterwards, a group of about 20 of us packed into a tiny room where the defendant and plaintiff were there. First a random 6 people were interviewed whereas only 3 were chosen to be on the case. Then they needed 3 more jurors and 2 alternates.

This is only a civil case so there are only 6 jurors plus alternates. Then, I was chosen as the 5th juror!!! I have to go to court tomorrow and hopefully the case will start. I was told that this personal injury case will only last at the most of about 4 days. Plenty of time for me to enjoy the last days of vacation and sleep in!!! I'm excited about tomorrow!!!
