Steven Dybvad – Personal Journal – April 25, 2014

by Steven Dybvad

Often I sit in my cell, wondering what the heck to write, thinking about my day, it was just like yesterday and the day before that, and so on and so forth. So I sit here in my cell, drawing a blank. I ran five miles this morning, and then I came back to my cell and did 500 pushups, 500 squats, 500 dips, and 1,000 crunches. This is what I do every single morning; it gets my day started in the right direction. When I’m finished with my workout, I usually have just enough time to take a shower before having to lock down for count, but today I couldn’t. The laundry guy said my clothes weren’t ready yet because two of the three dryers for the entire block were broken. I had no other clean clothes, so I just waited until later this afternoon, after my scheduled weight lifting time. I also practiced my guitar for about an hour and a half, worked on a mothers’ day gift for my grandmother, jotted down some ideas preface of my book, had a conversation with my friend, Kurt, played some cards while waiting for lunch call and dinner call, and that’s about a regular day in prison for me.
