Just another Saturday morning around here for me. We got rec first thing this morning for a really short time. I was only able to run about a mile and a half before we had to come back inside. I’m at work now and it’s a little after 1pm. I think I’ve been here since about 8:30 or 8:45ish. I’ve pretty much just been reading all day. I finished up a stupid detective/ who done it type of book. It really wasn’t even very good, but once I had figured that out, I was too hooked to set it down. I hate it when that happens!
Sorry to everyone for erroneously announcing June 25 as my projected hopeful release. Obviously, that isn’t going to happen. I think I’m usually pretty punctual, but this time I’m late! Maybe I’m just finally paying everyone back for always showing up to the lake tardy. (You like that reference, Momo?) For the majority of you that have no clue what I’m talking about, Momo has never once been late when showing up to the lake. He definitely gets the perfect attendance award.
Anyway….I lament the incorrect release date of June 25th. I always knew that date was the best case scenario, and I used it to keep my spirits up. Now that it’s here, it doesn’t seem like that big of a deal that it hasn’t materialized. The time I have left feels small now, and I still feel fortunate when I compare my time to a lot of the other guys in here.
Incidentally, it surprises me that missing Father’s Day doesn’t affect guys in here anymore than it does. I am speaking of the fathers, not the sons. There are only 3 guys in my dorm that seem to even care that their kids are missing them. The majority of the guys do have children. However, I am unaware and unconcerned with the specifics of 95% of these relationships and can therefore, offer you no more insight than to simply guess that most of them are just deadbeat dads.
A few weeks back I gave one of the officers in here the URL for the Blog. I debated for a while whether or not to share the info with her, or not. It seemed she was very curious, and I ultimately figured “What the heck”. There isn’t anything on here that is too personal, and I thought it would be unique to get comments from a different perspective. If any JDCJ officials are reading now, please feel free to leave any feedback, or comments, or questions you feel are relevant.
Hey, when does college football start? With NBA Basketball being over, there won’t be much going on with sports until then. I very well could wither away and experience meltdown in here if I’m watching a college game from one of these dorm TV’s. The thought of it, even now, is unsettling. What’s going on with all the conference upheaval? No more Big 12 as we know it? Or did they scrap the new plans? I feel behind on the news.
Kind of weird…with all of the news I’ve missed, the conference changes are the catalyst that have made me desire to get a newspaper subscription. I believe it’s a combination of several factors, along with feeling like I need to get reacquainted with current events, that are now making me become re-interested in the news. I also watched two television shows this week. “Medium” and “Lie to Me”. Both aired new episodes. Does anyone else like those programs?
