“I had to completely change my sense of time. I agree with all the people who said they ate super fast, but then we would slow walk back from the chow hall- any excuse for a few minutes more outside.
I made sure I never consolidated enjoyable things. If I had a snack- I ate it and concentrated on it. If there was something good on TV, I watched it.
Now, I’ll snack while I watch a movie because there aren’t enough hours in the day- but on the inside, I was trying to make hours and days go away.”
