Why do I care about Solitary Confinement so much?

Posted by UnicornSoul, 24 May 2016 · 230 views

Ok, so I have been unpacking things for the last hour! I am exhausted already lol. Been moving fast and lots of body turns and twirls lol! Very dizzy!

 

Tomorrow, I have an interview for my internship this summer at probation and parole! I really hope I get it! The problem, I could come off too excited, too, friendly, and too nice. In the job field I want to get into, to include this internship, I kinda have to be a bitch! Otherwise, everyone, including probationees and parolees, will walk all over me! But, I do mean business, I am tough, I am strong, and I am stern! But I gotta have a reason to be that way, otherwise I am just in my airy, happy, smiley mood, which makes me seem aloof and inexperienced in life. Interviews make me happy, I enjoy interviews. I have only not gotten one job after an interview, and it was because of my credit! I am golden in interviews.

 

So, to prepare me for this interview, I am dying my hair much darker so that I emote confidence and strength. I also went out to buy an outfit for the interview that is business casual, shows my personality and also screams "in control." I bought neutral makeup to wear, just eye shadow and lip gloss. Too much makeup is not good for an interview. You want them to see you!

 

I hope I am not over thinking the interview. I really want this internship because my plan is to work there after I graduate from college. This will be the career that I will work in when my man and I start to grow our family. It will also be what gives me the experience to help get me into graduate school along with all my research experience. I am actually going to two graduate schools, first University of Alabama Birmingham and then John Jay College of Criminal Justice where I hope to work for Steven Penrod!

 

My goal is to get my Ph.D., do research in the prison system about solitary confinement and how it effects people mentally, physically and emotionally, and then publish that research to then go out and start a reform of solitary confinement. I am not against solitary confinement, it is needed, but I am against the maltreatment the prisoners get during their stay in solitary.

 

Now before you go off and say, "Well, they are in prison for something horrible, they deserve what they get." Not everyone is in prison for something awful. That being said, you can't pick and choose who gets good solitary confinement treatment and who gets bad solitary confinement treatment. My mom spent a year in prison because of the court system! My mom and dad divorced. My dad didn't want child support (I lived with my dad). The court ordered my mom to still pay it. She couldn't even afford to pay it. So, my dad told her not to worry about it. They got the agreement notarized. 5 years go by, and boom, mom was pulled over on a traffic violation and found she had a warrant for her arrest. So she went to jail to figure it all out. During her court hearing, the judge had no sympathy for her and sent her to prison for a year. Now my mom has some mental problems as it is. So when she went she didn't do so well. People who could be a target of violence (my mom) will be sent to solitary for their protection. So, my mom, who did nothing wrong in prison, was left in solitary and forgotten for 2 weeks. She got her food but she didn't get anything else. I was not allowed to visit her per my dad's request as well as my mom's, she didn't want me to see her in prison. So, my amazing, loving, caring mother was not treated like a normal human being. She was treated like garbage, thrown out the car window, and forgotten! This is never ok!

 

So there is my background on why I care so much about solitary confinement reform! I have already started my thesis for graduate school. I will be able to defend it!

 

So, working in probation and parole, I will be able to talk to parolees who were in prison, and get information gathered to build up my thesis. This is why getting the internship is so important to me.




Dead Journal Entry

This was an entry I wrote when I was a senior 10 years ago, my own writing! Holy Fuck!

 

The Truck... Your Life! Feb. 3rd, 2006 | 05:20 pm http://www.deadjourn.../1549815/487063

 

Insane Feelings: Posted Image cynical
Death song: Metallica "Enter Sandman"
Walking down the lonely path, you realize that you are weak, oh so very weak.
Everything you think about, everything you care about is nothing but a dream.
You see the fog, oh the hazey grey fog and you wonder: What is this life for?
You fall down to the ground, lay in the dead position and look up to the sky.
You see the lifeless grey clouds floating by and you get a feeling of fright.
You stand up, turn around and see the answer to the meaningless life you live.
You move closer to the deserted street, all but that one moving object: The Truck.
You fight with your mind: do I stay or do I go? You see it moving faster and realize time is running out.
Closer, faster, closer, faster... it's time for the decision. End the life you never lived or keep the life and try again.
Three short seconds come and go, you're on your knees, in three, two, one... you see the truck hit you like you was really there.
You see the blood splatter and stain the dreary black [soulless] road and wonder, "how could this be?"
The truck passes through, the dead body still remains. You open your mouth to scream but the voice is restrained.
You walk up to the lifeless soul and realize what you saw, what you witnessed was just a dream, so you saw nothing at all.
You wake up and all you see is the grey fog. You notice your surroundings.
Your on your knees in the grass right next [to] the street. You realize what your dream conveyed.
Your life will be spared on the account of a second chance, unless you decide that you don't deserve [it].
You stand up and begin to walk. The object coming closer, faster, closer, faster.
Still walking, you see the truck fly by. You look around, you're still here.
You walked backwards to spare your life. A second chance you get. Did you learn your lesson?
No life is worth an early death. You do not choose your fate. Next time you play God, maybe you won't be so lucky.




The haircut! *coughtrimcough*

Posted by UnicornSoul, 21 May 2016 · 141 views

So just got back from getting my hair cut and looking good for my interview! Please forgive the crazy eyebrows that need to be plucked and reshaped, I am aware that they are a hot mess! I have been letting them grow wild so I can reshape them/ they get thicker! The whole reason my hair went from long to short is because I was losing a lot of hair in clumps, and my eye brows/ lashes were falling out in areas. So, trying to get them back to normal!

New House Update - More Pics!

Posted by UnicornSoul, 20 May 2016 · 184 views

Gosh, I am so excited! Tomorrow we will be officially sleeping in the apartment! Sunday we will be totally moved in! I cannot wait! Last night was horrible with the roomies. We were sleeping and they came home at 3am in the morning, drunk as fuck! Super loud and obnoxious! But, they have three dogs and when the dogs hear their motorcycle coming up the drive way, they bark like crazy until they come in! Well, it took them 20 minutes to get in the f'ckin house! So rude! And they know we were sleeping! Ryan had to wake up 3 hours later for work! Poor guy! Anyways, then they came in super loud with friends and proceeded to watch tv super loud and laughing and drinking until 5am! Normally, we would say something, but we just kept thinking to ourselves, only one more night sleeping here!

 

Anyways, here are some pics I took today!

 

Spoiler

 

There ya go! More to come as the house is filled. Still no furniture in the house yet! The bedroom will be tomorrow and the rest of the furniture will be on Sunday!




Let's talk about food baby!

food

Ok, so I am a foodie! I love food! All kinds! But also very picky with my food. For instance: Shepard's pie, I love everything in it... but refuse to eat Shepard's pie... why? Because all the food is mixed together! Gross. I have to have all my food separated. When my boyfriends eats meat loaf and the sides are corn and potatoes, he mixes everything together! Gross! I eat everything one at a time. I usually start with the food I like least. I will eat the corn until it is gone (I love corn though, but in this example, I eat from favorite to most favorite). After the corn is finished, I eat the mashed potatoes. I can eat so much of them! Then I end with Meat Loaf because Ryan's momma makes the best meat loaf (except my momma, but she lives in Ohio and I in TN).

 

That being said, here's a fun foodie questionnaire.

12. Best food for a night out with friends? Mozzarella sticks
13. Best foods to eat with a roll? A roll? You mean bread? Butter!
14. Messiest food, in your opinion? Sloppy Joes! But so delicious and worth the mess!
15. Easist food to prepare? I prepare for pizza that get s delivered to me. That's pretty easy!
16. Cheapest food you ever ate? Ramen
17. Most expensive food you ever ate? J. Alexanders Rattlesnake Pasta, it's just as expensive to make at home too!
18. Stinkiest food you ever ate? Ummm, if it stinks, I won't eat it!

21. Favorite potato chip flavor? Sun Chips Garden Salsa!
22. Most toxic substance you ever ate? Drank spoiled milk!

As the world turns!

Posted by UnicornSoul, 16 May 2016 · 137 views

Ok, so haven't written in here in a while! I miss me NC peeps. I want to get more active on here! You guys are all so funny!

 

So, I figured I can update you on the interesting life that is mine. Maybe you will find it interesting?

 

I am now a senior in college, supposed to be interning for probation and parole, but I am not. They never called me and yes I have been calling them, leaving voice mails because no one ever answers their phone. *sigh*

 

Next summer, I am going to Spain for 6 weeks to study Spanish. After that 6 weeks, maybe I will be interning at Probation ad Parole. *crosses fingers* I need this internship so that I can be hired in right after I graduate, or after my internship completes since I will be taking online courses my very last semester! I will be a senior for 3 semesters, thanks to the double major and minor I have.

 

My hair is pretty boring now, as I thought I would be interning this summer, so I went back to normal.

 

Well, now that clearly I am not interning, I want to dye my hair back to crazy colors.

 

Options: (if you have an opinion, let me hear it)
1.) I will dye my hair in whatever colors Team Codex chooses! (I have every color)
2.) I will dye my hair in DC colors for AC
3.) I will dye my hair based on whatever color is chosen in a poll later on, if it seems a poll would be fun to do!

 

I am growing my hair out! It is in a very awkward and ugly stage! But I definitely want longer hair again! I know that dying my hair, aka, using bleach, may not help out with the hair growth, but such is life!

 

I am moving into a new home next weekend. We are painting our rooms this week! My study room will be light pink and grey, Audrey Hepburn/Paris themed. We are still trying to figure out what color our accent wall in the living room will be! We are thinking blue or green. No red, because my S/O is painting his game room red and grey.

 

Tomorrow, I am voting! I am excited to get out and vote! This voting season has been literally crazy! *deep breath* If anyone cares to know who I am voting for, just ask! Otherwise.... ominous.

 

Finally, I leave you with some pictures to look at! This is me when I was born! June 21, 1986! Yup, I am about to be 30!

Makeuped out!

This is how my hair has morphed since I have been gone! In a week or so, probably after I am done with this semester, I going to dye my hair red and green for Christmas! My second favorite holiday!




Over a year!

Posted by UnicornSoul, 25 November 2015 · 151 views

I can't believe it's been over a year of me joining this wonderful site. This time last year, my old main was frozen and I turned a side account into my new main. Thanks to this beautiful site and all the awesome people who have helped me through my newbish ways, my new main is way better than my old main. I have done it slowly but surely. Now, hopefully I can age this account and Neopets doesn't fully die out!

 

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone! I hope it is going to be filled with family and food! I know I am on vacation with my sweetie in Gatlinburg, TN. We are staying in a cabin for a whole week. We have a hot tub as well, which we have been using religiously. We have been here since Sunday afternoon and leave this coming Sunday at 10:30am. I so do not want to leave!

 

We are also in the process of trying to buy a house. We found the perfect one, but the loan process is stupid. They approved us for a certain amount and now that we found a house under that amount, they are saying we don't make enough money by $80, yes just $80. They are trying to figure out how to get us covered... but... it looks like we may not get the house, sadly.

 

I have been super busy with school!!! But, by the end of this semester, I should end it with 4 As and 2 Bs. I have been super busy with mentoring and the psych club. Next semester I have been invited to 3 different Honor Societies! I am also doing some research next semester that will help me get into graduate school!

 

My life has been very busy, as you can see! December 2, I will be free for 6 weeks! That means I can live on Neopets again and chat here with you all! I do miss those who I have gotten to know and look forward to meeting new people here very soon!
