Day 112 in Federal Prison
I’m well over halfway through this tedious grind. I say tedious grind because that’s what it is. Yes, my positive attitude as well as my routine have really helped me through. Every single day is like the next and the next and the next. A bit ago, I mixed up my routine to fit in some fun things like volleyball, more tennis, some softball etc. I just needed to break up the monotonous and have some fun. However, I still keep the nuts and bolts of my routine intact. If I may offer some prison advice do not deviate from your disciplined routine for too long. Before you know it you will be trapped in a state of boredom, sluggishness and become distracted from the obstacles that await your release.
The people really help my time pass. I still have the core friends here that I have spoken about before, but I feel like I am friends with a lot of people here. It’s amazing the people who come out of the woodwork when you have a stress going on in outside. People come out of the woodwork to be by your side. It’s truly awesome. Never ever have I been around such compassionate people. Obviously, a lot of it has to do with the fact that they are in a tough time of their life as well. If the prison system allowed I would keep in touch with many of them upon release.
