Leisure Time

Interview with Natalie

JM: What types of facilities were available to help pass the time?
Natalie: As mentioned before, we were provided with two or three newspapers per cell, per day and between doing crosswords and playing dominoes, we were able to occupy some of our time. The rest of the time was spent watching TV, talking, eating sleeping and ensuring we had set our schedule for showering.

JM: Did you have regular access to the entertainment or was competition fierce? Give details.
Natalie: Yes; however, the only entertainment we really had available at the facility were the newspapers, books, what few games we might have in our cells. Typically, when we would watch TV, we would split up our time between cellmates so that we were not watching the same shows everyday of the week.

JM: Did you have a hard time staying in shape while in jail?
Natalie: No, because I made sure that I spent time each day walking around the cell for awhile and I would do this several times per day.

JM: How often did you get to go outside? What did you do outside if you were allowed to? If you were not allowed to go outside what could you do for exercise?
Natalie: We were not taken outside of the facility. Many of us would do laps around the cell, sit ups, pull ups and other cardio-based exercises.

JM: Did the jail offer church services? If so, what were they like and when were they held?
Natalie: Yes, chapel was available to the inmates on Wednesdays. I did not attend a service, but some of the other inmates did and said that the service was not denominationally based.
