So for the past few days I have been..... in jury duty! Exciting I know. In case you didn't pick up on that it was a bit of sarcasm. I was a bit annoyed about being picked, and even moreso about having to serve. After a while I decided to suck it up and take the experience for what it was: an experience. It was also a sort of eye opener about my career choice, and the decision I made.
I was always told I was going to be a lawyer. I research things, think about them, can structure logical arguments, and as I'm commonly told I love to debate, so everyone always said I was going to be a lawyer. For the longest time I thought the same too till I found fashion, and chose that as my career path. I often look back and wonder if I made the right decision, and my experience these past few days reassured me about what I chose.
I'd never seen real court preceding's outside of television, and the reality of them is considerably less dramatic. It's a lot of sitting, waiting, structure, listening, and talking. It goes on for hours and hours, and you have to pay attention the entire time. That's just sitting in the jury. I observed the lawyers at their job having to recall facts, having to think on their feet and quickly, the procedures, the general set up and knew at that moment I was glad I didn't jump into that.
While I have nothing against law I'm a bit too boisterous for that kind of lifestyle, and energy type. I couldn't spend hours sitting, waiting for a judge, and especially talking before a jury of peers. I can't see myself enjoying having to do that day in and day out. Fashion has structure, but there's more room for creativity and expression which I can't do without, and made me sort of appreciate my choices and have a bit more faith in my decisions.
Well that's it really I'm far too sleepy to type more as I'm only recently getting home, and just wanted to keep this updated with my current thoughts. Hopefully tomorrow I'll be of more energy, higher spirits, and if I'm lucky a nice DIY tutorial for a necklace.
