    I see PPL as a huge con but there are others. I was at a friends home today and think she was watching The Chew or some talk show like that and Steve Harvey was the guest. He was advising people to dream HUGE or they would never succeed. He went on and on about it and telling people to take risks and chances, etc. I see him as a con also. Jodi was looking for a sweet life, something easy, delusional. I just don't feel sorry for people like her. They don't know how to work for a living. In the first place she should have finished school but she was too busy rebelling against her parents to listen. Then she smooched from Darryl. She is just a loser, period. And I think she got a big thrill from murdering Travis, a thrill like no other. And I believe she will kill again, if she is ever set free.

    12/26/07 She writes about Travis making many EMOTIONAL deposits into our joint account but that he is near overdawn today. There it is! She specifically says emotional deposits (Journal 3)

The whole, change your thinking, change your life bit was apparently very real to her.
    My point is that the whole change your thinking, change your life bit is so prevalent in society today. It is everywhere and it's a con. It is great to be positive but so many people are so fake and she bought into it because she wanted an easy way out, someone to take care of her. I can easily see her as one Charles Manson's girls who helped him kill. I am sure their journals would have read the same, if they wrote one. It is sad people fall for it. But they don't have to kill for it. Seems like people are now saying she is indeed mentally ill. I think anyone who kills has to be mentally ill in some form or fashion but it doesn't take from the heinous crime they commit.
    And let's not forget what a liar this murderer is. She has lied her whole life. I won't buy into any sadness now, not for her anyway. I am sad a young man was killed because he wouldn't make her dreams come true.

    THANK YOU! That's the way I always saw it. And she made him pay.

    I agree with every word!

    Just finished #3. She's as exhausting to read as she is when she's spouting on and on and on. It's taken over 120 pages of her journal for it to sink in that there really isn't anyone home there.

    She has nothing original to say about anything or anyone. Two thirds of her journal consists of insufferably trite quotations and quotes about success and money and positive thinking and blah blah blah blah. Lost track of how many times she says " I loooooove "..(the Lord, sushi, someone she just met, Travis, etc), followed by a little smiley face.

    Sorry for her? No. But so far I have no sense whatsoever that I am reading the journals of a murderer. If I had no clue who the author was , my best guess would be a very young woman with emotional problems who might very well be heading for a breakdown of some sort.

    BTW, Journal 3 bounces all over the place... 2007, 2002, 2008....
    RIP, Cassini. To her tireless overseers- job well done.

    Why does TA have a UK blogspot? That seems really bizarre......

    to anyone else reading the journals...I have noticed several times that she writes the same word twice in a row...like, for example, I wish wish...and then marks out the second/repeated word or phrase. For that reason, I feel like these journals cannot be spontaneously written. I mean, who does that in spontaneous writing? I have, though, done that when I was copying something over. Anyone else have thoughts on that?

    Is there independent evidence that TA wasn't doing reasonably well financially? Part of his mortgage was paid by renters; he was evidently successful at PPL; he was generous. Maybe any hint that TA wasn't doing well came from JA? And around that lie, she fabricated the ridiculousness that she loaned him money?

    But Hope come on......You know how much I think of your posts, but this reminds me of Jennifer Wilmott questioning Dr. Geffner about poor deluded Jodi, mentally ill young lady who was used. So she had a breakdown and murdered Travis. Oh but she didn't shoot him and stop. She stabbed him multiple times and slit his throat. Oh but then she got herself together long enough to cover her tracks by calling his voicemail, grinds Ryan, and then goes home and acts as if everything's fine. Who does that? Not a young girl who had a breakdown. No this was a premeditated murder by a cold and calculating killer.

    How could Travis have known bringing her into his PPL and church group would cost him his life?

    Your second paragraph says it all. Immature, nothing inside, shallow, selfish, dreamer. Nothing original. She had to have his life or take his life. Period.

    Ok now I have to go read them. Lol. I have done that only when I am copying something over also. I think a lot of her writing was done knowing LE would see those journals.

    It would be very convenient just to quote PPL crud a lot: she wouldn't have to make up a bunch of stuff retroactively and make it sound credible.

    Yes, repetition is generally a copying error when it's the sort you quote. There are times in English when a double word is correct, as in "She was hungover because she had had 5 drinks at a party." It is interesting that JA double-writes a word like wish: she is an extremely wishful adult.

This young silly girl went from home to boy to boy to man looking for someone to take care of her and then she met Travis. She feel in love I suppose and thought he and PPL represented her dream life. When he refused to marry her and she had no money, she decided she had to kill him? What am I missing?

    I don't feel sorry for her at all. Suppose he used her, suppose he was a con artist, suppose he liked oral sex or whatever. She could have walked away. Instead she turned all her anger inside her sick self toward him and slaughtered him. Who does that except a sick Psycopath?
    No, none of that would ever be worthy of murder. Even then, she should have walked away.

    I do feel sympathetic that when she was in a desperate situation financially along comes PPL to make it worse.

    As to the bolded psychopath, this has been my accepted view of JA. IF these journals were not contrived for the consumption of others and if they are genuinely written for personal introspection, then I don't know.... do psychopaths feel empathy? Because there are examples of her displaying that capability in them. The possibility that she is not psycho is far more uncomfortable to me than to think that she is. Without a doubt in my mind, she cold blooded, planned and executed murder. I don't want to think that a person capable of placing themselves in another's shoes, to imagine their pain, could or would do what she did. Three times! That would mean anybody could do what she did (mentally) Maybe I've been misunderstanding what it is to be a psychopath. Somebody set me straight!

    OK. Journal 4 and we're in Jan-Feb 2008.

    First...her typical shift at Mimi's in Jan. was 11-4, just as I thought, and she worked doubles on many days. Relevant to the pedo lie.

    And....its news to me that she was fired from Mimi's Cafe. First week in February. She says for "pilfering 3 muffins" over a 2 month period, and that she meant to pay for them.
    RIP, Cassini. To her tireless overseers- job well done.

    Curious....The journals provide additional insight. They just do, and no apologies for thinking they do. I didn't say I believe she had a breakdown. I said the journals sound like that's where things are going. For whatever reason. I'm still in early 2008. Have faith.
    RIP, Cassini. To her tireless overseers- job well done.
