Phillip Cortez

August 8 2021

Hi, my name is Phillip Cortez. I'm 6'3", 205lb, hazel eyes, and I am physically fit. I am currently incarcerated in the Arizona Department of Corrections, but am soon to be released. My release date is January 27, 2022. Pertaining to my release, I am seeking anyone that may be willing to help my transition back in to society less complex.

Upon my release, I am seeking any additional support, from anyone that might be willing to help me succeed. Mainly I am seeking employment opportunities. I do in fact prefer a job in where I may look presentable, but I am willing to get my hands dirty if necessary. I am very motivated, energetic, I have my High School Equivalency Diploma, I have very good comprehension, skills, a willingness to succeed, I am outgoing. I have learned from my mistakes, I live my life with integrity, I try to do my best to be as honest as I can, I love to laugh, but I also know when its time to be serious. I don't do drugs, I am humble, I am very respectful, and I am willing to listen, and learn.

I have spent over thirteen years in prison. I was in fact a kid when I was incarcerated, and I want to succeed after I am released. I am willing to do whatever it takes "legally" to succeed. I don't have kids, and I hope one day, after I am financially stable, to start a family. If you would like to help, or are willing to help me succeed, the best way to contact me is through "".

Thank you for your time, and I hope to hear from you soon.

I’m just me...

What’s up ladies? My name is Michael and I’m 27. I’m currently single and looking for friends to talk too. I am a cool, down-to-earth type of person. I just want to laugh and have some good vibes. I’m interested in traveling, fashion, and BIG on loyalty.

I hope to hear from you soon.

For what it’s worth, it’s never too late, or in my case, too early to be whoever you want to be. There’s no time limit, start whenever you want, you can change or stay the same. There are no rules to this thing. We can make the best or the worst of it. I hope you make the best of it. I hope you see the things that startles you. I hope you feel the things you’ve never felt before. I hope you meet the people who have a different point of view. I hope you live a life you’re proud of and if you’re not, I hope you have the courage to start over again, because learning what not to do is just as important as knowing what to do. Stop wasting years of your life struggling with your flesh being tethered to your environment. Discipline your mind, body, and soul so that you are walking and producing love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, faithfulness, gentleness, but most of all, self-control.

Can't wait for Football season to start. I am a die hard Dallas Cowboy fan for better or worse. I am hoping this is the year we make it back.

This blog entry offers a better look at who I am and what I'm about.

I've lost 100 lbs., and maintain a healthy routine. Since coming to prison, I've sought to complete my GED though facility moves reset my progress standings every time. I maintain a 186-200 score on pretests. I study and fellowship my Christian faith when possible. I study multiple languages, and am currently learning Spanish (Español), and Japanese (read, write, and spoken).

I'm a self-taught, left-handed musician of 17 instruments. I sing lead, harmony, and choir bass/melody. Quotes I live by: "It's time for me to be who I am, rather than who I'm supposed to be" -Thor (Endgame), "Work smart, not hard!" -my father, "I'm a dreamer of worlds, and a builder of dreams" -me, and "It's not about you or me. It's about us, and the future we build together" -also me, and "It's ok to walk away from troubles, but NEVER run from them!" -again me, and "Life brings many shades of grey, but I prefer 50 shades of fun!" -definitely me LOL.

I take so little, and give so much! Bringing happiness to others makes me happy, and want to do more! I'm a wise investment with a positive return in love, life and a bright future. I love to laugh, and live to love. Help me to live, love, and laugh again. I look forward to the friendship we make together.

Love, hugs, and cuddles, Peter Cash (Pony) Message me on JPay!

I’m not really sure what you’re supposed to say in a blog, so I’m just going to talk about random stuff. I have been practicing drawing for a few months now and I have come to the realization that I am not an artist, haha. I did see how gloves are made on a show I was watching though, so I decided to try my hand at sewing a pair using materials from an old t-shirt. They turned out well. Not as good as some from a store for sure, but definitely better than I expected.

I love the Summer time. I like to go outside, feel the sun and warm air all around me. The smell of grass and trees on the breeze.

Anyways, so I’ve been putting whitening toothpaste into a mouthpiece like you wear in boxing then leaving it on my teeth for 10-15 minutes at a time. It seems to be working! I forewarned you this was going to be random babbling.

So, I already have my high school education but it’s not on record. So, I decided to sign up to take the GED test. I figure the course will be a good refresher, and plus, after I pass the test I get a pizza. (smile)

Well, I guess that’s about all I have to say for now so I’ll leave it at that.

Hey everyone (smile). So, this is my first blog. It’s memorial day weekend 2021 just to give a time reference. I’m not sure when this will be published to my profile but hopefully it won’t take too long. I’m gonna try to do a new blog every couple of months if I can.

A little background. I’m 37 years old, from Detroit, Michigan, and in prison for home invasion. It was my ex's house, we were arguing on and off for weeks, and she wouldn’t let me in. I broke the window and she called the police. They didn’t care that I lived there for 8 months, they didn’t care she was my ex. They charged me as if I were a stranger breaking into random houses. No injuries reported during my crime, and $150 in total property damage. For this I got 78 months in prison. And in Michigan we have to do 100% of our sentence. No good behavior, no days off. Then we still have to see a parole board. It’s almost like double jeopardy. In other surrounding states like Ohio, prisoners get time knocked off every month. Now, I’m not minimizing my crime. I was wrong. Period. I should have never even went over there. But… Do you think a broken window and no injuries during a domestic dispute is equal to over 2,300 days in prison? Michigan’s justice system needs reform!

Please add me on JPay. More to come soon.

How I show up in the world

One of my favorite things to do is help individuals, especially giving advice. If they are right or wrong, I'll let them know, but it makes me feel good when I know that I've helped someone, especially if they are in a dark place. Believe me, there are a lot of people in here that are in a dark place. My ultimate goal is to cheer them up and let them know that there is a light at the end of that darkness. But most of all what I love is that people also want to help and give advice.

Talking to different people allows you to see their authentic self. It's true when they say that sooner or later your “true colors” will show. I didn't expect to meet good people were I’m at, but they do exist.

I think that talking to people and listening to them is helpful to me and vice versa. If I go out of my way to help anyone I would. But if I find out or realize that you are taking advantage, then I'll just cut you right off. No biggie! It's all about cultivating healthy relationships and weeding out the toxic ones.

If you would like to share, I have a question. How do you show up in the world?

Like to know more, there will be another blog following this one.

Attention! Legal help!

Please read these two cases and tell me if I’m wrong: “129 SW3D.659,” “Lumpkin V. St.” Then read my case: “2014 TX.APP Lexis 9306 Munsch V. St.” “In Progress” is the key! I’ve got all the legwork done! I’ve got 11.07 writ done! I’ve got all my transcripts. I just need someone to stand by my side. I can provide actual innocence!
