Greetings to you all out there in the world, how are you all doing?

I am good, just sitting here thinking about all of you and wondering what life is like for you. Where are you from, what are some of your hobbies, some of your favorite foods? I'm interested in learning and experiencing your life, your culture. Where your from, what is acceptable and not acceptable. These are the things that I look forward to learning.

Myself, some of my hobbies, reading, writing, drawing, and being with friends & family. Chicken (fried), roast beef, pizza, choco-chip mint ice cream, and peanut butter cookies are just some of my favorite foods. Believe it or not, and I know their bad for me, but I really love Ramen noodles.

Ok, so the reason I love the noodles. 1.) They taste good. 2.) I've eaten them since I was tiny. They were the first easy thing I could cook and fix for myself. Now that I've been in prison, I have found many many different ways to prepare and eat a Ramen soup. To me, Yummy (Smiley face).

The idea of a pen-pal is an amazing concept to me. I love having the pen-pals I have. I've learned a lot about different parts of our world.

If and when I ever have my own kids, when they are old enough to read and write, I will encourage them to have a pen-pal through out their life time. I want my future kids to learn what life is, what it's about.

Gummy worms, gummy worms, gummy worms. OH my God do I love gummy worms. They are just so gummy & yummy. "Gummy worms gummy worms, they're just so great. Gummy worms gummy worms, it never is to late." I will always enjoy gummy worms.

ray has been in for well over 10 years. You don't know what he can receive in the mail after that long. Perhaps your the one who thinks your the bad sister? I made sure every picture you gave to RJ's Great Grandmother went to his Uncle Ray. I knew his feelings were hurt because you didn't allow him to have any. So I did what I could to heal that hurt.

Maybe you could do something about the hurt look on your Uncle Rick's face when he read this blog and had the conformation that you had fibed to him about writing Ray the last time you saw each other?
