Interview with Natalie

JM: Did you find it difficult to get along with other inmates? Please give examples to explain why you did or didn't.
Natalie: No, because I played by the rules, kept to myself or in small groups until my release date. I was luck in that my cellmates and I seemed to get along fairly well.

JM: What types of things did you have to do to avoid problems or fights with other inmates?
Natalie: My cellmates and I typically found things to occupy time, such as playing dominoes, reading the paper, doing crosswords, telling stories, reading books, and other socializing. When we tended to get bored with those activities, many of us would nap or watch whatever we might be able to find on TV.

JM: Were you able to choose an inmate as your cellmate if you knew one? How often would your cellmate(s) change?
Natalie: No, the cells in this particular facility were set up as a dormitory that contained about 20 beds. Unless there was an issue between certain cellmates, the staff selected where we were housed. Cellmates would only change when someone was released or brought in.
