The Concept of Time
Being in Yuba County Jail, I lose that prison stability. I find myself always asking for the time. There is no clock or caldenar visible anywhere. I can only gauge time from the feeding and dayroom schedule. I know breakfast is between 6 and 7, lunch is between 11 and 12, and dinner is between 5 and 6. The dayroom program differs every day. Because there are two tiers in my pod and 40 people, the tiers rotate to come out for dayroom activities. Some days I get to stay out until 11pm, others I'm locked in at 7pm.
I have to remind myself that I'm not in prison anymore. Even though I'm still physically imprisoned, I'm under a different system.
Time passes by quickly. I just have to adjust to the new time zone.
