Going to spend the entire afternoon in the library preparing for classes and reading my two textbooks. Did all my chores and planning during the morning, now off to fetch my new glasses and then it’s time to find a cozy spot in the library!

Ps: I have been practicing piano lately, something that I haven’t done for the past four years and it feels soooo amazing to play again!

Ted Bundy was quite the escape artist, having successfully escaped from prison twice. The first escape took place on 7 June, 1977, when Bundy had access to the courthouse law library - he was serving as his own attorney. When in the library, Bundy jumped from a second story window and fled into the Aspen Mountain. He was a fugitive for six days. His second escape occurred on 30 December, 1977. Over the course of a few months, Bundy lost 35lbs so that he could fit through a hole in the ceiling of his cell. He fled to Florida where he resumed his murder spree, killing three more.

Bundy had attempted one final escape before his execution. In July of 1984, prison officials discovered that a bar in his Florida State Prison cell had been cut and was being held together with soap. He and another inmate, Manuelle Vale, had planned to escape together. Death Row inmates at Florida State Prison each have their own cell; the bar in his cell had also been cut in the same place. Inside Bundy’s cell, they also discovered hacksaw blades and gloves. He was sent to solitary confinement. Who knows how many more women Bundy could have killed had he successfully escaped once more.
