Honestly I have no idea how this one’s going to turn out as of yet. Only got through first 3 witnesses. Central time is strange. The first witness was a dispatcher, who saw what was happening through street cameras while she was dispatching calls. The other 2 were bystanders at the scene.
The trial is expected to take a month. Opening statements were insightful, as we learned exactly how long the incident was, 9 minutes and 29 seconds. No, I’m not sure as of yet, if that’s how long the restraint was used, but I believe that to be the case.
Wow, I missed the timeline big time. OK I need to make up like 3 posts, woopsy! I’ve been doing really well after my Botox though! I haven’t had any headaches to speak of, except for tonight. My chiropractor even said if I’m not having headaches, I don’t have to run in there. This is nice, because he was having me go in every week.
I feel like I’ve been given a new lease on life. In fact I heard that in church the 21st. I still have nagging Tinnitus though. Since I thought it was related to my headaches, which I guess I know now it isn’t, the Botox didn’t fix it. There are supplements I can get for tinnitus, and quite a few things are being researched, so hopefully it can be taken care of soon.
It wasn’t all that unpleasant. It was also fairly quick. The only strange thing about it, was that afterwards, I had lots of pressure on my head. I felt like it was full of fluid. the doctor said, that in fact my head was actually full of fluid lol.
It was kind of like a head full of air, so I kind of felt like my head was floating away. Which to have your head floating without the rest of your body is well… it’s trippy.
I also joined Clubhouse yesterday. My initial thoughts are that wow there’s a lot of stuff on there. So much stuff, that no one should keep notifications on for any length of time. I tried that yesterday, and was inundated. I did this before I left for the doctor’s, and ended up turning my phone down while I was in the office.
When I got home someone called my number asking for mom. No, I don’t know why that happened. Then again, he said, “your name is on my phone,” and clearly it was my mom’s name.
Woopsy! I was going to write it yesterday, but then I woke up with an extremely bad headache. I’m currently following jury selection in the George Floyd case. It’s also distracting me.
Honestly, I have no idea which way it should go as of yet. I think that it will probably result in a hung jury and/or a mistrial. I don’t see anyone coming to an agreement over this case. It’s possible that it’s because I’m not there, since I’m the case unwinder extraordinaire. Just kidding, although I think I’d be good at serving on a jury, I really don’t like confrontation!!
I’m good at unwinding and/or connecting things though. In other words, I can take one witness’s testimony, and connect it to testimony from 2-3 other witnesses, and do a decent job of figuring out what it all means. Part of this is because of the fact that I have an extremely vivid imagination, and if someone is describing something, or I’m reading a document, I can pretty much imagine it. This all depends on the amount of detail, of course.
Anyway I came here to write about jury selection. Well the process is actually kind of boring. Every potential juror is asked the same exact set of questions. What’s interesting however, is which prospective jurors each side decides they will keep and/or strike.
This is my first post in 100 Days to offload,
I’ll be writing 100 posts in a year. I’m pretty sure I can get to 100 or more, instead of the 365 I got to back in 2011. That was crazy!
I took a trip to the Chiropractor on Tuesday, in an effort to see if it would help my headaches. It has definitely done that!! I still have headaches on a daily basis, but they’re more manageable, instead of the extremely bad ones I’ve had over the past week and a half, they’re probably around 3-5. Extremely bad being around 7-9, not wanting to do absolutely anything.
My neurologist managed to get Botox approved for me! Yay for him!! I’m going to go get 31 injections to the head on the 18th. No, the Botox doesn’t go in my lips, it’s actually used to treat headaches these days.
