March 23, 2015
Too often in life we are selfish, self-gratifying individuals who never really stop to think about how our choices my actually affect others. For me, these blogs are a way of making a change in myself, to try and not be so selfish.
I don’t particularly enjoy writing but I’m trying to do something selfless to help others understand what life if like for someone in prison. By sharing my private thoughts and feelings I simply hope to enlighten people to whole new world with which so many are unfamiliar.
As I look out the window and watch as the staff leaves for the day, I can’t help but envy them. How I too wish I could just walk out those doors and go home for the night.
I’ve been here for over a year now and I’ve come so far, in so many ways, yet I still have so far to go. I sit and wonder, “Where will I be a year from now?” Only time will tell.
The uncertainty in my life is now more present than ever. Over the coming weeks, during any free time I have away from school work, I will share with you the lessons I’ve learned as well as the feelings I’m experiencing as my time nears an end here at Taft.
Thank you all for your support.
