Obviously I've made some heavy mistakes in order to land myself in such a place; the lure of fast money and all that. Since arriving here though, I've taken the time to reflect on my life and try to put things in perspective. I regularly attend church as I wish to mature and grow spiritually. The foundation of the new life I envision of for myself is faith in God. I'm also currently awaiting placement in the prison's Academic Program and have applied for substance abuse programming. Basically, I'm looking to take full advantage of any resources I can which will give me the tools I need to succeed in the future with positive thinking as I move towards reentry into society. I do have six children from the ages of 20 to 3. Being a father is one of the greatest joys I've been blessed to experience in life! I love outdoor activities like hiking, fishing, camping. I'm also a big sports fan. I could see myself one day enjoying the company of someone special over a nice dinner and a few glasses of wine or beer. Actually, I don't care much for alcohol outside of that context. Truly, I am seeking someone to share correspondence with and hopefully develop a meaningful relationship; not necessarily a romantic one but I am open to all possibilities.
