5:30 a.m. I woke up very early this morning. I can’t go back to sleep. I was tossing and turning in the night and one of my comforters got bunched up off of me and I can feel the cold. I take some time to get the comforters situated.
8:00 a.m. I start to get motivated to get out of the tent. I’ve been scrolling online just trying to stay warm all morning. I get all my stuff together and then I hike out to the mega camp.
9:00 a.m. When I got to the mega camp I noticed that the wind had been ripping through the tarp. I bought a blow up mattress so that I can start spending more time at the mega camp. There’s a snow storm that’s coming I don’t know how bad it’ll be and I’m hoping that the camp will weather the storm. I do some videos showing me blowing up the blow-up mattress and fixing the tarp. And then I drove over for lunch at LifeBridge in Salem.
11:40 a.m. I hike out of the woods to get something to eat. When I get to Lifebridge I see a few of my friends. You sit down and we eat lunch. I’m sorry to say I haven’t been keeping up with my daily logs so I can’t remember what I ate that day. I did run into my friend Nick and his dog rigatoni or Riggy for short. We spend some time talking and tells me where his tent is located in the tent city so I can visit him.
12:30 p.m. I leave Life bridge and I head over to the library to catch up on work in the afternoon.
4:45 p.m. I walk back over to Lifebridge to eat my dinner. I talk with a few friends at the table I’m sitting at. There’s an older gentleman who is in a wheelchair. He can walk a little and he likes to get napkins and forks for everybody. My friend Sean is also there, He’s still in a lot of pain from being revived by the paramedics after taking a suboxone and overdosing. He broke two ribs.
6:00 p.m. after dinner I drive to my friend’s house in Danvers. I’m driving out to Dedham in the morning for the Karen Read court date. Protesters are meeting at 7:30 a.m. in front of the courthouse and I want to be ready. I’ve also been tasked with getting a box of coffee from Dunkin’ donuts.
6:30 p.m. I hang out at my friend’s house and I work on writing blogs and uploading videos, editing and such. I turn in early shortly after 8:30 p.m. so I can get up early. My friend Erin was supposed to come with me to the protest but she said she’s not feeling well. I guess I’ll be rolling solo in the morning.
