My Prison Experience

My Prison Experience

My prison experience has mainly been a learning one. I've had the time to really get to know my true self, and what I want, and how I'm going to get it. My outlook on life also is a lot different than what it used to be. I know what's important now. I can write pages and pages about what I've learned in here, but where to start and how to keep this post brief is pretty hard. So if you're interested in reading about what I've learned, just write me and let me know.

During my time locked up, I've gone through a lot of shit! I've done time in Max, Med, Min, and almost Camp, but I got into this gang fight I'm in the hole for now a day before I was supposed to leave. Fucked up, huh? I ain't really trippin' though. Most everything happens for a reason.

Look, I don't really know what to write and I don't want to write a bunch of shit you don't want to read. So if you could help me out by sending me some questions, I'd write better like that. Let me know what you guys want me to write about, and feel free to ask me anything. I plan on doing a post pretty soon about my gang fights. I guess that can be pretty exciting for you guys to read. Anyways, hope you get this vato soon.

When I Get Out

Before I get out, I plan on transferring my 18 month probation to Hermiston, Oregon. The main reason for that is 'cause my mom can use some help. She lives at my grandma's house so she can take care of her, but she has a health issue of her own and she never gets a chance to get out. She's always been there for me, so I'm more than happy to be there for her. She's like one of my best friends. She's hella cool!

Other good reasons for me to move to Hermiston, Oregon are: it's really close to where my daughter lives; no one knows me there so I don't have to worry about old enemies and bad friends; it gives me a good opportunity to start my life over and make better friends. Also, I have a place to live at rent free and can save up some money. My mom is going to help me start my own business.

I don't know how I can fail when I get out! I will stay out of prison, I will be a better person, I will be my own boss, doing things I love. I will find a good woman to love, and I will be happy!

As of right now, one of the only things I'm sure of is that I will be tattooing from my home when I get out and working doing whatever. All my other business ideas, I need to look into more and research. In the three years I have left, a lot can change and my research is limited here, so I'll have to wait till I get out. All I can really do from here is get a couple of magazine subscriptions to Small Business Opportunities and Entrepreneur, and read up.

Another thing I'm sure of and can't wait to do when I get out is, when I get off of probation, I'm taking my daughter to the Mexico City area to meet a lot of our family and to give her real quinceañera.

I'm not really stressin' about it too much when I get out. I'm pretty sure things will work out for me. I have a lot of family support and love, I got my mind right, and last but not least, I got my faith and lots of hope. There is so much more I plan on doing when I get out so, if you would like to know more or have any questions or would even like to give me any opportunities, I'm open like a book. Write me.
