Hey everyone. You may have noticed, I’ve moved to a new prison. This place, I’d say is better overall compared to where I was because we have access to more resources and more freedom of movement here. However, it’s not without its challenges. For instance they are far more petty when it comes to rules and far harsher when it comes to punishment. I guess they’re reminding us as we get closer to going home just how quickly they’ll take our new found freedom from us. Almost as if they’re actually anxiously waiting for an opportunity to do so. I’m sure that doesn’t surprise anyone.
I’ve actually received my 1st violation here, already. I’m currently on living area restriction until the 25th. They got me for something I wasn’t even aware I was doing. It cost me my job as a tutor. I had the position for less than a month. I don’t even envy them it, though. They said they’d pay me, but when it came time for my 1st paycheck…nothing. I was working four 10-hour days/week. Now that they fired me, I’ll be moved to food service. It’s not too bad. I worked there for a little over a week before taking the tutor job. I’ll have more free time. I need it to get stuff done, too. I have some reading and writing I need to catch up on.
Hmm…What else? I’ve been attending A.A. and N.A. meetings regularly. That’s been helpful to my psyche. Maybe it sounds corny, but I really want to get as far as possible with this Anarchists in Space thing. I don’t believe that’ll be possible if I’m getting high. My mentality won’t allow me to do both. At the same time, I have to be honest in telling you I haven’t been studying to send anarchists to space like I should be. I’m changing that. I’ve also abandoned studying Japanese in favor of studying solely for that purpose. Japanese will always be there for me.
Oh! And I want to thank everyone that sent me holiday and/or birthday wishes this past month. At first, I was trying to write back to everyone, but I realized that there were just too many and I doubt many of you were expecting to start a correspondence anyway. I will, however, write to you if you’ve sent me a letter with something more than just well wishes. If I miss you forgive me and write again. I’ll get back to you.
Well, thank you everyone for the support you’ve shown and continue to show me. I appreciate you all and will be staying in touch. Take care of yourselves.
