just found out that a corrections officer was killed by an inmate in cumberland county which is about two hours from here. I have to work friday-sunday and the weekend is when we have to do SRG searches ("Security Risk Group", which basically means gangs)..last time I had to do SRG searches, two bloods followed me and the other officer around the pod and asked us weird questions the whole time. it didnt SEEM threatening other that the fact that they wee bloods but THAT was enough to put me on edge. I ended up finding a tube sock tied off at the end with a rock inside it in one of their lockers . I confiscated it and wrote him up but we had an acting sergeant there on that day (because our sergeant wasnt there) and she didnt follow through with having him sent to single cell/segregation....so yeah, he's still in dorm 3 and I'm going to have to deal with him on saturday....its very likely that by him not being sent to seg (segregation) that he got the impression that: "I can screw with this officer and not have ANY repercussions for it" or something along those lines

sometimes I feel like management doesnt back up their officers the way they SHOULD. ...and that can put the officer in a situation where they can be more easily targeted by certain inmates.. anyway, that inmate in particular should have been sent to seg but someone higher up didnt do their job so now, like I said, he's still in regular population . so....all things considered, idk how he's going to react when I have to thoroughly search him on saturday but its possible that things might get heated if he refuses to comply

for the first time on this job, I'm actually kind of scared of what might happen to me. I just hope theres a good officer assigned to patrol in dorms 3 &4 this weekend who I can rely on to go balls to the wall if things get heated with one of those gang members (mainly the one i mentioned) ....I feel like I'm one of the few C.O's in that area of the prison who actually has a pair of fvcking BALLS, but there are defintely a few others whom I KNOW I can rely on to back me up .


in may they are supposed to be switched all the officers around to let them work in different parts of the complex and i can't WAIT for that because dorms 3 &4 (where iv been assigned) are one of the most dangerous places to work in the WHOLE complex. its really starting to get nerve racking and i hope they assign me to the yard or chow hall so i can just have a ****ing breather for once.

when people say this is a thankless job, they really mean it. this sh!t is wearing me down . I just need a break from the dorms and ill be fine though.


btw , THIS is something similar to what I found in the locker of that bloods gang member except it was just one BIG rock instead of multiple smaller ones:


its a really dangerous improvised weapon because an inmate can hide it under their jump suit and EASILY inflict some serious blunt force trauma with little effort.

today actually went really good. The warden came down to our building to check things out and he actually came into the control booth to talk to me and we ended up having a conversation . it really boosted my morale that he would come all the way down to dorm 4 to talk with me. at first i was worried that i was in trouble but then I quickly realized that that wasnt the case . I was nervous the whole time because I didn't want to slip up and say something stupid in front of the warden, of all people. haha

Handling angry feelings/urges:

Event --> Negative thought/belief --> Negative feeling/urge ~> Negative action
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .|
,_______________________________________| need to branch-off here
|
'--> Positive thoughts (lessen -ve & add +ve) --> Positive/normal feeling --> Positive/normal action


Ps1: 'You've got to accentuate the positive, eliminate the negative' song
Ps2: those rocks-in-a-sock-throwing jailbirds probably could do with some such anger management! (i would expect)

I am now realizing how i used to "kill time" really well. The main way was to spend time trying to do technical stuff on the computer. Yesterday i "wasted" an hour easily, by trying to fix an issue with the mouse's context menu. Waded thru several web pages of complex & confusing & frustrating stuff, before i found the 1-line solution!. I must make a habit of it!

Three people were found dead in an apartment near here.

Why couldn't I be one of them?

I've taken this bad habit of reading e-mails or text msg and telling myself I'll reply later and then I forget about it. Then days or weeks later I bump into the person and they ask why I never answered and I... have absolutely nothing to say for my defense?

It's a funny thing . . . the more I get to know people, the lonelier I become.

I do the same thing and I just tell them that's what happened.

Shopping for sunglasses is a trip. The prices are outrageous for what you actually get, owing to the fact that one company basically owns all the marbles.

Yet and still...

I barely have enough time to accomplish everything I need to from day to day, and I don't have anyone to take care of. I can't imagine having kids on top of that... Makes me wonder if I should save myself the expense (time- and money-wise), and keep the planet a little less crowded :P

I like kids, but... I don't know. WE'LL SEE.

I recommend a drink coozie to you for that problem. It may keep the heat from escaping from the outside of the cup so quickly if you put a lid on it.

My singing voice must really suck - I can hear my downstairs neighbor leave everytime I sing. I wish I had my own place to sing freely; sorry I sound like a cat gang bang :/

Quote of the day:
Good timber does not grow with ease:
The stronger wind, the stronger trees;
The further sky, the greater length;
The more the storm, the more the strength.
By sun and cold, by rain and snow,
In trees and men good timbers grow.

It's almost late evening, over four people in the house, all aware of it, and not as much single person has mentioned my birthday in any sense. I don't want gifts or a party, but a little gesture at all would be nice.

I don't know - maybe I don't deserve it.
