Everything is going just fine for me. From the experience of a couple of my friends in here that received lay ins last night, it seems now as if parole answers are being returned just over 2 months from the time that we begin the parole process. That puts me getting my answer around the end of June and, hopefully, getting out of here near mid July. I guess that’s pretty much the timing I’ve been looking at all along, but it’s ,unfortunately, not on the really “good” end of the spectrum where I’d get out of here around the end of June. Oh well, no big deal. At this point, the end of June vs. the middle to end of July is almost the same thing. My greatest anticipation now is not necessarily a release date, but rather for a positive parole answer. Please continue to keep your fingers crossed!
I am sorry that there has been such a lag. This blog is very important in helping me relay my life to my friends, and the new support from strangers that I’ve received through this site has been inspiring and nothing short of remarkable. I apologize for the delay in some postings as I had priorities with my parole and the editor had some personal things he had to take care of.
I received another book yesterday from a friend to conclude a debaucherous trilogy: I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell, An A**hole’s Guide to Handling Chicks, and Die Happy- 499 Things a Guy’s Gotta Do While He Still Can. This trilogy had made for some very entertaining reading and the books have become quite the hits here in my dorm. Maybe I can rent them out or something! A lot of you are probably suggesting to me right now that I should be spending my time more wisely and I, quite honestly, would agree with you based on the limited information that I have provided here. Just keep in mind that I’m leaving out the monotony of my daily “homework” (business planning), 1 ½ hours of the same exercises as the day before, and the “normal” books that I also read concurrently. It just seems to be much more fun to discuss and write about books concerning partying!
The last chapter of the Die Happy book contains a guide to help you complete your own “bucket list”. I am looking forward to completing my list over the next few weeks. It’s kinda crazy how much of the 499 things that I’ve already done. Maybe I should write my version of this book, too!
The prison would not allow the book Friday Night Lights to be delivered to me. The reason is that there is supposedly a racial slur on page 59. Seriously! Can someone please tell me what exactly is said on page 59? I have 2 weeks to appeal the decision to the prison board.. I haven’t decided if I’ll do it yet. I may write an appeal letter on sheer principal if I get bored next week. If so I’ll let you know how it goes.
