We started the class today with a brief discussion about “Dancing with the Stars”. I understand that Knight Rider was voted off in the first week. Someone in class said they thought he was gay, but I had not ever heard that. Does anyone know? Does it matter?
The first two days of this class have consisted of discussions followed by a VCR recorded program. The discussion was much more interesting and, I thought, more productive. Today the discussion period only lasted about 10 minutes, and now we are watching a film about juvenile offenders. The film is debating incarceration vs. rehabilitation. Seeing prisoners on TV is funny. Seeing them in person…not so much.
The new film being shown is titled “Introduction to Street Drug Pharmacology”. Seeing as how I’m not a drug user, this ought to be enlightening. If I turn to a ‘post vacation’ life of drugs, it will all be traced back to beginning at this moment. My demise has started.
I met a new guy at the morning rec. He has been here only since Friday. Coincidentally, he went through the intake process the same unit I was at for a short time. Obviously, now he is here. Anyway, it makes me very, very happy that, comparatively speaking, I am nearing the end of my time. I think as I get closer to release this will happen more often, and I hope each time it makes me feel just a little better.
