Thursday, January 31, 2013 Between having my tooth pulled, and then getting a flu shot, a combination of the two really tried to rob me of my energy, and stop me from completing my daily routine, but I wouldn’t let it get the best of me. Halfway through my workout, I had to stop. Before… Read More

Wednesday, January 30, 2013 Since I’ve heard about how dangerous this flu season has been, so bad that they’re calling it yet another epidemic, with many healthy people across the entire nation resulting in death, I’ve been really concerned about getting sick and catching the flu in this filthy environment. Well, today my prayers were… Read More

Tuesday, January 29, 2013 I just received a pass for surprise follow-up with the dentist. They want to pull some of my teeth but, I’m trying to salvage what I have left until my release, so that I can get the best dental treatment I can, and possibly save my teeth, instead of having to… Read More

Monday, January 28, 2013 I can’t believe that I didn’t push myself to work out this hard a long time ago! I feel so alive and rejuvenated! Every day it gets easier and easier to do a little more and work out a little harder. After I finish my routine each day, I feel so… Read More

Sunday, January 27, 2013 Summary things have changed since I was first arrested. I had zero direction in my life, I was moving backward instead of forward, I was near death, actually walking dead, and now I’m born again. I want success in my life that I’m striving for. I want the love and trust… Read More

Saturday, January 26, 2013 Being in prison has been a total life-changing experience for me. Prison is given me an opportunity to view many aspects of my life in a completely different light.

Friday, January 25, 2013 All of these crazy frigid temperatures and snow storms don’t affect us one single bit in these piping hot cells. I continue to wear nothing more than a pair of shorts, with the window open, hoping for a cool breeze. My stamina for working out has continued to increase dramatically this last… Read More

Thursday, January 24, 2013 I seem to be going through another writer’s block. My daily routine is still very consistent and is much busier but, the days remain the same as the days prior, unchanged. From a prisoner standpoint, consistency and repetition of good days are not necessarily a bad thing. Normally, when something changes in here,… Read More

Wednesday, January 23, 2013 Staying busy each day is really helping to ease the pain of doing time. Between reading helpful books, submitting book reports, submitting written work from lessons out of the Straight A Guide workbook, writing my autobiography, fitness routines, and of course my daily journal entry writing, morning turns to night, days and… Read More

Tuesday, January 22, 2013 Yesterday’s 30 Car Hwy. pileup makes national news, it’s not very often that we see, or hear about an Ohio incident making national news but yesterday morning, a whiteout that made driving visibility nearly impossible was the cause of so many cars crashing into each other, one right after another, drivers… Read More

Sunday, January 20, 2013 I just had a great visit with my mom. Just her mere presence is therapeutic and spiritually uplifting. I always prepare for my visits by creating a mental list of questions to catch up on life in the outside world, and topics of conversation to utilize our two hours to the… Read More
