A Change Never Hurts

MSDF and those running the E.R.P. were nice enough to allow some of the author's assignments released. They came on a nice 3.5" floppy which is rare to come by these days. It makes me wonder, do the computers have any USB ports? lol. Kidding aside, I think they could take a step forward from 3.5's (considering there is funding available, if not, maybe they should adjust.)

One of his assignments was a personal daily log which works great for the current trend of this blog. The second of the two assignments may be even more interesting than the redundant life that prison can be. The second assignment was an autobiography. I can't remember the minimum length that it had to be but the issue that Jon Doe is, on average, half the age of the others in their group may make more detail to who this person is, where did they come from, and what makes them tick. I have honestly not read a word of it yet though I have known them their entire life.

To keep track of what entry is what (because I am going to mix both the log entries and autobiography between posts but during publication) you can look on the first the first line in Italics to determine.

Thank you all for still following,

You Have an Assignment: READ THIS!

Received on July 8, 2011

  Another assignment for each of us in the ERP is displaying a quote that we find applies to our program. This quote is put on a paper banner and hung up for the whole unit to view for the week. During that time, we also have to write a reason for our choosing of the quote. Following is the one I chose:

I drank for happiness,
   And became unhappy;
I drank for joy,
   And became miserable;
I drank for social ability,
   And became argumentative;
I drank for sophistication,
   And became obnoxious;
I drank for friendship,
   And made enemies;
I drank for sleep,
   And woke up tired;
I drank for strength,
   And felt weak;
I drank for relaxation,
   And got the shakes;
I drank for courage,
   And became afraid;
I drank for confidence,
   And became doubtful;
I drank to make conversation easier,
   And slurred my speech;
I drank to feel heavenly,
   And ended up feeling like hell.

-Author unknown

  The reason I chose to quote this poem is because I believe that any one of us can relate to this. Even if you don't feel as if you have an issue with alcohol, the drinking can be replaced with the use of your drug of choice. I, personally, can see myself in every aspect of this poem at one time or another, and I truly believe that if anyone has EVER used drugs or alcohol in their lifetime, and they have an open mind, they too, will find themselves relating to it also.

Until later.....

All Apologies

I simply want to say as I apologize for the lack of recent content. There was a decision to be made, to hold on until after incarceration or to work with the system and have everything ok'd before hand. The decision was to work with them ;) The last publication was first typed up at the date given at the top, the actual date it was written is not exactly known as there was some time of interruption. Following publications will also be off from the original date of it being written but rather be noted the day of publication.
