Dear Readers 3/21/12

Dear Readers

Hello, again. I thought I should just speak a little more about myself. I am 5'7, born 7-25-1988, I am Latino but don't speak a lick of Spanish, lol. I was born in Texas and have been to California, Hawaii, Georgia, Virginia, and Louisiana. I felt more at home at California, Twenty-Nine Palms. The desert nights are quite calm and cool. I like how the moon is so big at night. You remember my last blog entry right, well, looks like Sarah's getting married. Yeah, congrats to her! I'm glad she found someone. I got too much time for her to be waiting. But at least we're still friends. I ended up writing a speech for my folks to read at her reception. I wished them both happy lives. Is it strange to thing this way? They say if you love something you let it go, right? It's like what Moto Hagiyo said once: "Meeting people is God's doing, but parting is what humans do themselves." Yeah I'm hurting some but time heals all wounds, so they say. On another note, I am finally on the the 8th chapter of one of the books I'm writing. Yeah! I took forever to get over my writer's block. So now that that's about done that's a total of 20 different chapters or so. Is there a way to sell a book while in prison? Oh, does anyone know an anime called "Addicted to Curry"? It's a must read if you like to cook! Well, I can't think of anything else to write so 'til next time.

Comic titled "Tag".

Dear Readers

I don't know what it is but it's just heavy what goes on in here. Like you can be having fun one minute and the next you're fighting to stay alive. Someone asked me once if I liked it here... The heck kind of question is that? 'Course not! Don't like it in here. "But you do", he said. "You do like it here, otherwise you would be trying to get out." What are you talking about, how? "By studying the law, that way you can get out or at least get time off. But all you do is write and sleep, so you like it here, that's fine." I told him I didn't, he said I did. It got me so mad I said that not everyone is the same. That studying the law was confusing, plus studying was never a strong point for me. "Excuses", he said and I agreed. I told him that yes, I missed the outside and everything that came with it. Family. Technology. Food. I missed it all. "Then why aren't you trying to get out?" I told him (not that it was any of his business) that it was because I was afraid of the outside. He was puzzled by my statement. Here's the thing, outside is just as scary as it is in here. Why? Say I get out and I wanted a job. They see my criminal background, I'm out a job. Now, all someone has to do is say "I saw him with..." or "I saw him here or there", "I think I saw...", "He did this or that" and bam! I'm back in here. Sure, I don't need to fear AS much for my life as I would out there. BUT, it's the thought of coming back that gets me. That's what terrifies me. That's what I told him.

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask and I will get to you as soon as I can.

Hey you little dousche. I almost didn't see your name on here. You still can't write. Ha!

That wasn't me that choked. That was Aaron. And that was actually kind of funny what you said about CASI. I'll pray she gets over her amnesia soon, too.
