Day 54 at FCI Petersburg
I’m deep into the camp and at this point. As such there are times I feel disconnected from the outside world. I cannot imagine what I would feel like if I had to serve years in here. I respect these guys who do handle their term with aplomb and without complaining.
It’s such a bummer not seeing my family. It does feel good knowing that I have knocked out a big chunk of my sentence. Everyday, I get closer to coming home and being with my family.
I want to give a big thanks to all of you that support me during this journey. Without such amazing friends, it would be so much harder to get through this process. I want to give a big thank you to Justin Paperny who has mentored me through this prison term from pre-prison to active prison and will work with me after prison. I plan on continuing to write after prison and keep those interested in my post prison development up to speed.
It’s two years since I was able to enjoy my passions at work freely. I have had to look in my rear view mirror the whole time, which was a major distraction that affected my total focus. I tried my hardest to keep my family clear of my stress, but that was sometimes impossible. I can’t wait to give them my undivided attention. Another day down is another day down.
