Carol Whitt's Blog (5)

Another update, because I don't update much.

My last blog post talked about my job in corrections. Well, training in October didn't happen. Actually, I didn't go to my Basic Correctional Officer Training class until December. So I spent 2 months at the prison in my cadet uniform, learning everything I could and watching how things ran.

Training took place in Forsyth for 5 weeks, essentially all of December. My birthday was celebrated at training, turned 25 training to be a CO. I passed the gun range, got my ass kicked in PT,…

Explaining my absence of the past month.

I doubt many of you noticed (or maybe you did) but I've been inactive since August 17th. Usually most people wouldn't blurb too much on why, but as it is, I have things to talk about. :D So here goes.

 

1. I started school in September. I was taking Criminal Justice and focusing on my growing homework load. I was enjoying it, until...

My mother wants past-life regression therapy.

A few of my posts on this site have revolved around my mother's nonacceptance of my Atheism. Suffice it to say, she and I have a complicated relationship. Mental illness runs in the family, specifically Bi-polar Disorder, which my mother is medicated and in therapy for. Since I've rejected religion and pursued a more logical way of thinking, I've noticed a role reversal. I feel like more of an adult, whereas my mother seems to be more childish.

 

Anyway, I'm getting…

I came across this old post in my blog.

I was looking through my blog recently and I came across this post I made back in '09 about evolution and the fallacies of religion. The post stemmed from a rather harmless status I made on Myspace (profile now deleted), and the comment my mother made. Anyway, here's my post in full. Comments and thoughts are welcome.
