Woke up at 5:30 AM. My Ribs and fingers were sore, had to move slowly to avoid aggravating my ribs. cleaned u[ and dressed in BOP green uniform. Breakfast was served at 6:15 AM. Breakfast menu; cereal, muffins, milk, apple, and hot water. Watched the morning news until 7:00 AM. Went to the library for reading and a daily diary entry from 7:05 – 9:45 AM.

Went back to the unit for headcount at 10:00 AM. Lunch was served after headcount. Lunch menu; baked chicken, kale, macaroni and cheese, bread, banana, and punch. The computer room was closed because some contraband was found. it will be closed for a week until next Monday. Went to the library for reading from 10:30 – 11:15 AM. Called Doris at 11:15 AM, She told me she had an asthma attack daily after going outside. I suggested that she wear a mask when she goes outside to avoid breathing in too much allergen. Hopefully, her meeting with Dr. Jasmine Lee tomorrow will help with her respiratory problem. I told her I jammed my fingers and wrist and bruised my ribs during my soccer game. We laughed that I am getting older and cannot play contact sports like soccer anymore. She told me that Quang, Annie, and her were planning to visit me on 6/24/2023. I told her to wait until I receive the Okay from our unit counselor. It might be a few weeks because of personnel moves.

Ryan gave me a few pens after noticing that I have been writing a lot while at the camp. Continue reading at the library from 11:30 AM – 2:00 PM. Watched some television until 3:30 PM. Headcount at 3:30 PM. Dinner was served after the head count. Dinner menu: Shredded pork sandwich, mixed vegetables, apple, and punch. Revised my commissary list and turned it in to Jon. Decided against walking today because my ribs were hurting and let my body recover. Got my laundry ready for washing tomorrow.
