July 6, 2012 This is by far the hottest cell that I’ve been in yet. This is absolutely horrible. I don’t know for sure what heatstroke feels like, but I think that I might have had one last night. The time is around 7 AM and I’m already wiping the sweat from my body just… Read More

July 2, 2012 Dinnertime last night was very exciting. A storm was moving in. The guards made us speed walk to Chow Hall in hopes to try and beat the rain. It was already dark and thundering before we got to the Chow Hall. Only the wind was still calm. By the time we sat… Read More
