Charles Day/ Personal Journal Entry

July 23, 2012 Greetings, it has been an interesting week this past week. For one, I have taken a complete week off of working out to let my body heal and to fast from doing the things that may seem to try to come before what is most important to the life I live. It… Read More

June 24, 2012 I was able to get a hold of my mom on the phone today. I told her all about how well this J pay e-mail works and she told me that they have gotten all of my letters now and that set my mind at ease. For a minute I was starting… Read More

June 23, 2012 I just had the best, longest nights and mornings sleep that I’ve had since I got here. The temperature in the cell is much cooler. In my new bunk he has a respect for common courtesy. He is an older gentleman in his late 40s, early 50s. I knew immediately that he… Read More

June 22, 2012 Today they moved me from a cell upstairs with my previous bunky, to a cell downstairs with the new bunky. I was content with moving for a few reasons. My last cell was upstairs where it’s much hotter, not just because heat rises, but the windows are smaller and no draft travels… Read More

June 21, 2012 Today I just received two letters from my mother in the mail. I was very happy to read what my mom had to say. She is always doing her best to lift my spirit, even when I can sense that hers is a bit down. I’m very frustrated to see the dates… Read More

June 20, 2012 As I was walking into the chow hall for lunch today, I saw an old man standing by the exit door choking on a piece of food. One of the inmate kitchen workers who carry our dirty trays to the dish room noticed the old man. He first asked the man if… Read More

June 19, 2012 In the past, my mentor, Justin Paperny has told me to be careful when writing about other people in prison, for what I write is accessible to anyone with a computer. So, with that in mind, and even though my bunky has no contact with the outside, I will keep his name… Read More

June 18, 2012 I finally got to see this psychiatrist for the first of three visits I have to have before they classify me to a parent institution. I have to do this because I was still taking antidepressants in the County jail. Even though I stopped taking any and all psychological medications, I still… Read More

June 17, 2012 Today is Father’s Day the day that I’m happy to be a drug-free and clear minded enough to be able to remember important days like this and be able to appreciate that I have a great man in my life that I can call my father, and to be able to extend… Read More

June 16, 2012 Finally I got to have a real conversation with my mother on the phone. It was a joy to hear her voice and also to hear that she’s comforted in reading my journal, knowing that her son is still at peace, focused on positive goals and constantly protected by the Lord, and… Read More

June 15, 2012 I finally made contact with home. Unfortunately my mother’s cell phone was dead and she could hardly hear a word I was saying, but at least I got to hear the soothing sound of my mother’s voice. I saw another fight at lunch today. Boy, I must say, lunch seems to be… Read More

June 14, 2012 Another man was maced on the way to lunch today. I saw the whole thing go down this time. The guard emptied what seemed to be almost an entire canister of what they call the Fox this is the name brand of the Mace into this kids face for simply talking in… Read More
