Well,

I’m almost done this bid.  112 days left.

Boy, there’s a lot of bullying and saving seats in here.  It’s like kindergarten with these people.  I’m still going to meetings and groups.  I started a writing class; it’s alright.  A little boring.  The one I really enjoyed which we graduated from about two weeks ago was Houses of Healing, a very intense group where you try to find your inner self.  I’ve got about three more classes in Moving oOn, I’ll be graduating the GEAR group.  I’ve got about six more classes in codependency group.  “They” put me in the 18th, I’ll be starting “Seeking Safety”.  I’m in

Sarssm group untill May.  That’s a really good group about trauma.  I’ve got a really great sponsor; she’s got 35 years of sobriety.  She’s taking through this book called “the steps we took.”  She also comes in on Sundays and she’s taking everyone through the Big Book.  April 13th will be my big first year of Sobriety.

Hope to hear from you guys soon.

Hi,

I wrote back faster this time.

Every night here, I walk two miles on the treadmill.  I’m not rolling out of here!  I’m doing about 14 months on 18 months.

They have a clothes closet so you can wear regular clothes.  Feels so good.  We even get commissary between 7 to 730am.  When I first came here, a very nice woman crocheted me a blanket for my bed.  You’re never in your room, though.  The longest time we’re in our rooms is during visits (4hours.)  They even have a yarn bank (scrap) where you can get yarn to crochet whatever you want.

Next Monday I’ll be celebrating six months sober!  They’re gonna mention it at the town meeting on Wednesday.  I’m flying right by these women.  I go to four AA meetings a week, doing classes, working with mental health, bible study.  There’s still some classes I”m still waiting to take.  I signed up for four more classes.  I”m so happy and I like where I am.  Today, and every morning, I read “My Daily Bread” and daily reflection.

Hope to hear from more of you guys.

Love,

Miss Linda

Hello free world how is everyone? I’m swell thanks for asking. One of my names Janos Lurunoi and my biggest challenge this week is making the transition between doing absolutely nothing to be busy five days a week. It’s not a bad thing, sounds so negative. What I’m doing is just shifting gears. Very positive I had a chance to be a guinea pig for a new program at Mountain View in Charleston. It’s a program for 18-26 year olds who are spending their first sentence in a state correctional facility. it’s a last chance kind of deal. The program is designed to keep us from catching state bid. This includes developing pro social skills, awareness of consequences of poor decisions, adaptive thinking and problem solving. There is also the Work ready program. Learn how to get a job and stay employed. Sorry if this news harsh your mellow but I don’t think these guys aren’t down with Holistic‘s. I’m not giving up but the future for inside meets is looking dim. The biggest things for me is vocational training. I’m taking wood shop first, and then maybe culinary arts. Overall this place is nice. It’s clean and the stuff treats us like we’re humans. It’s a good environment to modify one’s behavior.

I miss you guys and gals, keep the revolution alive.

Here’s what I think about these sex offender programs they have up here.

I saw this thing on tv along time ago, where they interviewed some of the midgets who’d been on the Wizard of Oz as munchkins.  And the midgets were like; “I never knew there were so many of us!  It was like a wonderland!”

So these programs get all of these perverted child molesters from all over maine and put them in a dorm all together!  And I figure that they’re like the munchkins in the Wizard of Oz: “I never knew there were so many of us!” And, “At last a place where I’m normal and I’m not a freak!”

And yeah, there are groups where they get to talk about their pervertedness.  To cure them.  Then, when they get out, they have this ready made network of other child molesters that they met and cemented friendships with while in prison!  They’ll never have to feel alone again.

That’s my take on it.

Sue

Sorry that it took so long for me to write back.  Thank you for the list of books, but I asked the officer about sending in for the books you rfedcommended and she said she wasn’t sure abourt having those books sent in.

Well, I’ve got a lot of time, hanging. Nine years with four years probation.  I was at the prison for three weeks bgeroer I came to pre-release.  I”m so mucdh happier here 0 akit if freedinm smoke ciggarettes, food is so much better.

I’m going to four A.A. meetings (in=house) a week, and I”m starting to take classes.  I’m truing to get on Mark’s crew to the animal shelter, and I’m going to start working with mental health.

This place is so spotless.  Windham Prison is so bad with Val.  She says it’s her prison and she’ll run it her way.  And the level system really sucked.  The officers here treat you sooooo good (respect.)

Well, I’d really love to hear back from you soon.

Blog!

Hi everyone. How is T.V. land? If you would please tie your stocking around your necks but loosely please. We don’t want to have any unfortunate accidents.

One of my names is Fritz and my biggest challenges this week was turning in my homework on time. Hahaha! Saying that makes me feel like I’m back in high school. But without parents and pretty girls. I don’t really understand why it do hard for me. I would guess because I think some of these classes are just… Not as interesting as spies and chemistry, or even sliding compound midersaws. Who can blame me?

On another note I read a very interesting article in Rolling stone. The Duke Freshman in porn, Miriam Weeks aka Belle Knox. I mean come on man. Yes she tried to keep it a secret, but when it came out she owned it. Law school, feminism, she is a modern Betty Paige (Spell check). I love and respect women in way few people can understand. And I wish I could write her fan mail. Or at least read the book she wants to write. The simple fact that she is standing her ground is really great. In my eyes she is not a slut or a whore. She is just a person, a very beautiful person, but a person just the same. Some people say it is wrong to judge others. Personally I judge everyone and at the end our day. I think she is great and will be great. She certainly has a lesson to teach. People, being what they are, won’t accept what she will have, to say. I am listening, who is with me?

I will see you next week at this time. Be ever mindful of those who seek to control you and have fun.

Yours Truly,

Fritz

Dear Holistic Peeps:

Mama-love always told me that nothing worth having is ever easy, and while that makes a lot of sense, it has also lead to a lot of spurned gifts.  Who knows how many blessings that I have undeserved or cheapened because I didn’t have to work for them, not knowing that if they were given to me by the grace of God, then I could never earn them?

Hmm.  Food for thought.

No wonder why I usually fuck up my relationships with women.  It has always been so easy to get women.  So I work a little to make them fall in love with me.  I mind-fuck them ’til they love me.  Plus, my dick game (excuse the vulgarity) is something else – HaHaHa!

But then, when I have their love, two things happen:  I get bored because the challenge is gone and my inner insecurities start to emerge so I drive the women away so I don’t get hurt when they leave.  Pretty stupid, huh?

I have my close male friends and then I couldn’t care less about the rest of the guys in the world.  But women are a different story.  It seems like every woman I am close to, I try to seduce.  I need their love and to me, the ultimate proof of that is them giving me their bodies.  I make it worth it.  I’ve slept with 95 women and every one has come back for more.  Making love is a gift and a talent which through hard work (HaHaHa!) and lots of reading upon and practice I have become quite good.  Yet, to me, it can be and is most of the time as casual as shaking hands.  I’ll fuck a woman before I kiss her – for some reason kissing implies more intimacy.  Anywayz, though, I’m starting to ramble.  I was starting this to tell you about my own problems with women so that maybe y’all could find something to help you.

I remain,

Prince

I only have 50 days now.  Clocks ticking.  Chris Arbor’s out of Portland, but he’s also gonna oversee Biddeford probation.  Now sure who my P.O. will be.  probably be some newby who wants to make a name for himself.

Yes, I am fat.  I started doing just strength training, and no cardio.  I’ll walk more when it gets lighter longer.  Plus, when I get out I’ll be able to go biking and I will walk around way more.  But, regardless, it doesn’t but me much; it’ll get better.

Movin’ to a new city’s kinda nerve-wracking.

Thanks for the shout-out on WMPG!

Peace,

Rocky

I get out in July, with no more good time coming back to me.  So least I have a basic idea.  Time’s flying right by.  I think the Indian Spring made it feel like summer.  Not much happening.  Taking IOP ’till I get out.  With Sue.  She’s something else.  We’re trying to get an extra day a week so we end sooner.  going m-t and friday.  Me and QT are still working out.  Just weight training.  I haven’t done cardia in a while.  You can tell.  I’m grossly outta shape.  Kinda round.  But my extremities are nice and solid.  Thinkin’ how it’s gonna go when I get out.  I still got some time left.  Hopi ng when one of my cellmates  gets out, he and I can move in together.  He gets out, like, nine months after me.  I’d need a roommate if I want to get out of those damn boarding house.

Listening to Cinderella from the ‘xander show.  Any who.  Will talk to y’all soon.  Hopefully someone will read this.

Rocky.

I’m fucking stuck behind the fucking wall!  I don’t know if I can get back to the dorms!  If something don’t go right for me soon, I will have a good blog for you :-)

I got to pray more, I guess.

I am worried.

I am struggling in the girl department.

I feel lost, a little bit.
