I gained resources today. One is named Alexander Anderson, and the other is his squirrel-destroying friend. They are going to let me go with them at night, so that I can gather more information about this place in order to formulate my escape plan. I've already learned about the creatures, and how the asylum changes at night.
I'm skipping the mid-day meal... I will make a list of the objects I have and see which ones I will need for my scheming. I figure I should get a little rest while it's still relatively safe, too.
I've also decided to keep this journal hidden or with me at all times. It would be unwise to leave it out for the nurses to find.
